Instagram has been working continuously to provide new features to their users as more and more apps surface and technology changes, the company has added many features to stories, including stickers, GIFs, background music, and more. The social media app has also launched a Lite version for mobile users in order to eat fewer resources and run the app smoothly. But stories couldn’t be saved as you edit earlier, if you want to make one and publish it at a later time, you actually have to tap on the “Save” button, which saves the whole story as a plain image, losing things such as mentions, stickers, music, and more. Now, though, a proper draft function is coming to Instagram stories as reported by Xda.
The feature was confirmed by Adam Mosseri, head of Instagram, on Twitter. Later, leaker Alessandro Paluzzi also got his hands on a couple of screenshots from the feature in action and shared them on Twitter as well. According to the details you’ll see a “save draft” button right alongside the “discard” and “cancel” buttons that you’re probably already familiar with. Tapping it will stash whatever you were doing into a drafts folder, which you can pull up anytime from the stories menu.
Tools such as the Facebook Creator Studio support Instagram posts and have both drafting and scheduling built-in. For those people (and for many people, actually), managing story drafts right from the app is really convenient. Instagram has no clear announcement on when this feature will actually roll out to users, but we can expect in the next few months hopefully.
