Soon you can post your Instagram stories directly to WhatsApp
(5 months ago)
New York , Jan 4 : Popular image and video sharing platform, Instagram, will soon allow its users to post their Instagram Stories directly to the popular messaging app, WhatsApp, as its status.
"We are always testing ways to improve the experience on Instagram and make it easier to share any moment with the people who matter to you," a spokesperson from the company told TechCrunch.
An Instagram story, posted as a WhatsApp status will become encrypted like the rest of WhatsApp.
Last October, Facebook had extended the usage and flexibility of Instagram Stories to its website.
Now, the social media giant is looking at how to bring WhatsApp into the fold.
Users will get an option to tap to share to WhatsApp from the Instagram sharing screen. They will then have to press "send" in WhatsApp to post the story.
The feature is, however, currently available to a small number of users and is being tested.
