Instagram has rolled out some more updates to improve their Stories feature. The social network now lets you save your own stories and mute others.
Sean O’Kane at The Verge writes about the muting feature and another addition:
It should help solve one of the early knocks on Instagram’s version of the idea, which is that it was easy to feel inundated by the amount of Instagram stories that show up at the top of the app. (People tend to follow more accounts on Instagram than they do on Snapchat.) Now, when you mute a particular account’s Instagram story, it moves the corresponding bubble to the end of the stories queue. The app also won’t automatically flip to that story if you’ve viewed everyone else’s — you have to un-mute it to view it again.
Instagram also added the ability to pick a color when you add text to stories, another small idea that makes up part of the goofy fun of Snapchat.
