Here's how you to take advantage of it.
To view your old stories, click the circular clock icon at the top right corner or your profile.

This will show you your past Instagram stories — both photos and videos — which you can then download to your phone.
The archive even shows the date you made each post. Leah Rocketto/INSIDER
This archive is only visible to you.
Your archive might go back several months, depending on when you updated Instagram after it rolled out the new feature in December 2019.
How far your archive goes back depends on when you updated your app. Leah Rocketto/INSIDER
If you don't see anything in your archive, you might need to update your settings.
In the Instagram app, scroll down to Story Controls.
You can find your settings by clicking the little gear icon on your iPhone or the three dots if you have an Android. Leah Rocketto/INSIDER
Make sure "Save to Archive" is switched on.
This might not have been switched on automatically for everyone. Leah Rocketto/INSIDER
By clicking the word "Archive" once you have it open, you can toggle between your stories and any photos you archived manually.
Any photos or videos you saved manually will show up under "Posts." Leah Rocketto/INSIDER
Now, enjoy spending hours scrolling back and reminiscing on the countless photos and videos you took.
