Instagram Testing The Sharing Of Someone Else's Post To Your Story

08 February 2018

Thus the developers behind the apps continuously try to come out with new features that are unique and which appeal to the users.

Instagram still doesn't have a native "Regram" feature that allows users to repost other people's posts, but the company is testing a new feature that's very similar to it. As said above, Instagram users already take screenshots of posts and share them on Stories.

Users will also be able to add text and stickers to the posts, which may be taken from friends, popular meme pages or public celebrity accounts. However this is done through the use of third-party apps as it has yet to become an official feature, although a year ago it appeared that Instagram was testing out an official method.

Instagram is testing a new feature that would allow users to share another person's post to their Story, the Facebook-owned social network has revealed. By sharing it to Stories, it can provide the same reach except that it will expire after 24 hours, plus there might be some users who don't want to have their posts regrammed.

Instagram Stories recently hit 300 million users in November 2017. Matt Navarra from The Next Web also shared a video on how Instagram's new "Reshare post to Story" feature works. Reshared public posts can also be formatted to include the original poster's username.

"We're always testing ways to make it easier to share any moment with friends on Instagram", a company spokesperson told TechCrunch.

Right now, Instagram is just testing the feature likely with a select number of users. Users should see the option now for "Allow Resharing to Stories" if you go to Settings Story Settings.
