Instagram, owned by Facebook Inc. is one of the most popular social media platforms. On this platform user including celebrities, corporate companies, common people, and retail companies use its video and photo-sharing social networking service. Another reason for its popularity is its availability on multiple platforms including iOS, Android, Windows and on Website.
Moreover, a while ago apart from sharing Photos and Videos on Instagram, they brought a new feature “Instagram Stories” for sharing quick updates and fun activity. This was a feature similar to what we have seen on Snapchat stories. Rather than allowing content to be framed in square or 1:1 aspect ratio, with stories, you can share upto 19:9 aspect ratio depending on the screen size and is available for users to see for a limited time of 24 hours.
So, after lots of people started criticising the concept of stories to be evolved from Snapchat and isn’t original by Instagram, but now it has completely taken over the Snapchat as it has more daily active users and is easier to use. Once you get involved with its stories features, it becomes a lot easier to share your thoughts or posts with your followers. But what if you like a photo or video your mate has shared and wish to store it on your mobile gallery but how to do it? As there is no option to save the stories on the Instagram App.
