A new WhatsApp feature will allow you to share updates on Instagram. A new tool that will allow WhatsApp users to instantaneously publish their status changes on Instagram is presently being tested. According to the independent WhatsApp news site WABetoInfo, the update is currently in beta testing, with the full rollout expected soon.
A new WhatsApp feature will allow you to share updates on Instagram
Users may already share WhatsApp status updates to Facebook, and given that Meta owns all three social media and content-sharing services, this latest option is not surprising.
It implies that if a photo, video, gif, or text is posted, it will appear on Instagram Stories for 24 hours, but the user will have control over who sees their content. Currently, a WhatsApp status can be shared with all contacts, all contacts except selected persons, or only selected individuals.

How to Post WhatsApp Status Updates on Instagram Stories?
You can choose to share the content ‘externally’ by adding it to Facebook, with this option scheduled to be expanded to include Instagram. Many people are already aware that you may, with permission, similarly share Instagram posts on Facebook.
Those who use Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp to share the same content are likely to be lured to the new function, which will save time with the extra connectivity, as detailed by WABetoInfo:
“Integrating a feature to allow users to share status updates to Instagram can offer several advantages, with time-saving being a prominent one.”
“Allowing users to share their WhatsApp status updates directly to Instagram enhances the process of updating their status across multiple platforms.”
“Instead of having to create and post separate updates on WhatsApp and Instagram, users will be able to execute the action in a single step.”
According to Meta, the new upgrade is likely to urge users to aggregate and share their social content similarly across each of its platforms, WhatsApp, Instagram, and Facebook, but people who use their multiple profiles differently would be resistant to this.
Many younger users, for example, submit image content to Instagram, whereas WhatsApp is utilised for private one-to-one direct interaction, including the ubiquitous ‘group chat’ that has expanded thanks to the app and comparable messaging networks.
