If the button is clicked, then Instagram will select and summarize a number of Instagram Stories posts belonging to users that they find interesting.

However, users can also choose their own moments that reflect their 2021 years to be used as flashbacks, at least up to 10 Instagram Stories posts.

After that, users can share their version of Instagram flashbacks to other users. This summary of user moments throughout the year reminds us of the trend of uploading nine Instagram photos with the most likes (top nine) aka "Best Nine".

It should be noted, the 2021 Playback feature on Instagram can only be accessed if the user has uploaded at least three Instagram Stories posts throughout 2021, and activates the stories archive feature or story archive.
