The new feature will let users post decorated photos, videos, and GIF images from Instagram on WhatsApp, which will disappear after 24 hours.
“An Instagram Story posted as a WhatsApp Status also becomes encrypted like the rest of WhatsApp,” TechCrunch reported on Wednesday. The feature is based on publicly available code that WhatsApp makes available for third-party apps.
“Users get an option to tap to share to WhatsApp from the Instagram sharing screen, but they still have to press Send in WhatsApp to post the story,” the report reads. The feature was first spotted by Brazilian site Tecnoblog.
“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 Facebook spokesperson was quoted as saying.
Facebook tried something similar when it let Instagram users post their Stories directly as Facebook Stories, back in October last year.
Being in hope, we are looking forward to see the announcing date of this feature because i personally believe it will work out successfully.
