The photo social confirms: it is working on the possibility to put stories in draft before publishing them.
Instagram will allow to save drafts of stories, without losing the editing already done. The new feature, still in the works, has been confirmed by the head of the platform, Adam Mosseri, through his Twitter profile and could soon peep in the next versions of the application.
A few minutes after the official announcement by Mosseri, the leaker Alessandro Paluzzi showed through his Twitter profile some screenshots dedicated to the upcoming feature that will allow to completely change the approach to the creation of Instagram stories. "Inherited" directly from Snapchat but presented in a completely revised and corrected version, Instagram stories are a particular format allows you to create interactive versions and definitely richer than the traditional posts on Instagram. This is well known by the 500 million users, private or business, who use them every day to share their content with followers, adding to the traditional photos other details that allow you to interact directly with your audience.
Instagram, how draft stories change
Currently, Instagram allows you to save drafts of stories in preparation, but in fact limited to the preservation of the image used. In fact, all those ancillary elements that can usually be inserted to correlate with the photo, such as stickers, music, polls, quizzes, mentions, links via swipe up and more, are lost once you leave the dedicated editor.
With the new feature, however, the platform will be able to keep in memory both the image and the subsequent editing, with all the additional elements. To do so, you'll simply have to tap on the Save Draft button before exiting the dedicated interface. In case you don't want to resume editing later, there are buttons available to delete and discard the previous draft. The drafts will be available in the menu of the stories, in the dedicated folder.
Instagram stories, when will the new drafts arrive
To date, a release date for the new Instagram feature has not yet been put on the calendar, nor has Mosseri provided further information via the chirp dedicated to the stories. However, according to the state of play, it wouldn't be surprising if the new story drafts were to be permanently integrated as early as the next releases of the app, both for iOS and Android operating systems.
