Instagram introduced a new feature that will let you share public posts to your Stories. This feature will give user the ability to share posts of different public accounts in their Stories feed directly. The new feature has been rolled out to Android users, and is said to get to iOS users soon in later on.
During the absent of this feature, users normally take screenshots of interesting posts they found and share it on Stories. Now, with this option, its more easier and well mannered. Also, it gives due credit to the original user.
If you’re an Android user, you will see this feature hidden under the share option on posts. If you like a post and wish to share it with your followers, hit the airplane-like share button below the post and a new option to Create a story with this post will now appear. Clicking on that option will directly send you to your Stories section, where the post will appear as a sticker.
The original user’s handle who posted the photo/video will appear below the sticker, and you can click it to go their profile and see the original post as well. You can rotate, scale and move the sticker, and tap it to explore other styles as well.
