Instagram Stories Can Be Posted Straight To WhatsApp

12 January 2018

Instagram stories are Snapchat-like features which allow users to share photos and videos in a slideshow. The report is based on a tip-off from a reader in Brazil, where a local blogger has also posted about feature after stumbling across it.

This feature also helps you know when others might be using your image as their profile picture.

In addition, as I am aware (thus far) this little hack does not work the other way round (crossposting your Facebook stories to Instagram) but nonetheless, I would not rule it out as an option for the future. It doesn't seem like it's lacking for active users - Facebook said WhatsApp Status has over 300 million daily active users - but it never hurts to have more people onboard.

The feature that Stories deserves.
