Instagram users who access the Facebook-owned photo- and video-sharing network via the mobile web now have access to two of its most popular features.

Instagram announced in a blog post Thursday that Instagram Stories and the ability to save posts have been added to its mobile site.

The features will be available to all users “in the coming weeks,” and Instagram added in its blog post: “You’ll see the camera icon at the top left of your feed. Tap it to take a photo or to add a photo from your library. You can also add text and change the text color. When you’re done, post it to your Story by tapping ‘Share to Your Story.’ Additionally, on mobile web, you can now save posts you’d like to revisit later. Access all of your saved posts by tapping the bookmark icon in the top right corner of the page.”
