According to reports, WhatsApp users will be able to share their status updates directly to Instagram Stories. There is a possibility that the Meta-owned app will integrate status updates across its two apps shortly.
This feature is still under development and was spotted in the latest beta version. The WhatsApp features tracker WABetaInfo reported that users would be able to choose whether to share their WhatsApp updates on Instagram or not. Additionally, users will be able to control which status updates are shared.
The latest WhatsApp beta update for Android 188.8.131.52, which is available on the Google Play Store, reveals WhatsApp is working on new ways to share status updates by adding an Instagram option. Having added the option to share updates to Facebook, WhatsApp is working on adding this capability to Instagram. Users will have complete control over the content they wish to share by managing their Instagram Stories audience, according to WABetaInfo.
“We believe integrating a feature that allows users to share status updates to Instagram will have several benefits, one of which is time-saving. The ability to share WhatsApp status updates directly with Instagram enhances the process of updating status across multiple platforms, according to WABetaInfo.
How is the Feature Accessible?
The feature could be particularly useful for business accounts, as it would eliminate the need to create separate posts on WhatsApp and Instagram. Users can engage with their audience more efficiently once the feature begins rolling out.
Testers can link their Instagram account with WhatsApp in the most recent beta version of the app (v184.108.40.206) that is presently available on the Play Store by going to Settings >> Privacy >> Status >> Give my status updates to others.
Users can mirror Instagram status updates from WhatsApp by using this link. The feature is still being worked on, so a future update may include it. At the moment, WhatsApp’s Story features are inferior to those of Instagram. With any luck, an update will bring the functionality of both apps closer together.
