Instagram now lets you send its Snapchat-inspired 'Stories' directly to WhatsApp

After selecting the share to Whats App option the Instagram image will appear in Whats App with a small Instagram logo in the bottom corner. The Whats App status was originally a text-only feature but was updated to include different forms

WhatsApp Status is a part of WhatsApp where users can post encrypted photos, videos and GIFs that disappear after 24 hours.

According to a report by TechCrunch, the company is now testing to let users post their Instagram Stories directly to WhatsApp in the form of WhatsApp Status. Only some Instagram users are spotting this feature at this time, and they all appear to be in Brazil.

Previous year in October, Instagram rolled out a feature which allowed its users to share Instagram Stories directly on Facebook. There's no word yet on when exactly the feature is going to go live worldwide, but it's expected to see a wider rollout later in the year.

The report goes on stating that the ability to post Instagram Stories on WhatsApp is under testing within a limited number of users. As mentioned, the feature is now under works and is available only to select users. However, they still need to tap "send" on WhatsApp for the Story to be posted, and there is a visual indicator on the bottom right to let people know it came from Instagram.

Earlier this month, Instagram started experimenting with recommended posts.

"You now have the option to share your Instagram Stories to your Facebook Stories".

Previously, Instagram rolls out a new feature that allows users to follow hashtags.it is easier to stay connected with the interests, hobbies, passions and communities the person care about.

Snapchat is also working on "Stories Everywhere" feature. The other reason could be to increase the usage of WhatsApp Status.

Stories on social networking apps have proven to be extremely popular, but one of the issues that I've always had with them is the fact that you need to pick and choose which app you'd like to share your moments on. Facebook could also use the feature as a means to have people use WhatsApp Status more. This will also help both the platforms to boost traffic.
