It is known that Instagram Story has experienced great popularity since it appeared and has successfully maintained that popularity for several years. You can often notice some novelties within Instagram stories, such as new stickers, gifs, various filters, etc. Users would certainly not be interested if they could not customize their Story or make it more interesting before publishing. Instagram Story drafts are just one of those novelties.

Instagram Reels has also recently appeared, so we will see in the coming period whether it will surpass Instagram Story in popularity because it is a very similar content format.

Story drafts – a novelty on Instagram

Instagram Story – what’s new?

Instagram recently announced that it will include the option of saving the Story – Story drafts, so you can post later by simply visiting the drafts section.

We can say that this is a long-awaited option. Instagram confirms this claim, and this option saves time and publishes a pre-planned Story at the appropriate time.

You can see how this option will be available in the photo below.

What advantage will the new option have?

The main advantage is that you will be able to make Stories when you have the most time and save them as a draft, so that later when needed, you can just enter the draft section and publish.

For all those who are wondering – couldn’t we always save the Story on the phone and publish it later? Yes, you are right but it is impossible to save a Story in the same form as it is on Instagram.

For example, if you did a survey or quiz as part of a Story and just saved it on your phone, later when you want to publish it, you will have to waste time doing the survey or quiz again. Also, the location, tag, or hashtag you entered will not be clickable and will need to be re-entered.

With this new option, there will be no big waste of time because all saved Stories in the draft section will be able to be published in one click, with all their previously entered items (quiz, location, hashtag, etc.)

Instagram has not yet announced when exactly this option will be available, but it is important that it will be very useful. Follow the events within the application and what comes with its new update.
