Instagram tests letting users post Stories directly to WhatsApp

Now, Facebook looks to allow the same thing with WhatsApp, at least for some people. Because business Pages can't create Facebook Stories, their Instagram Stories also can't be cross-posted, but there are signs that Facebook may soon allow Pages to create Stories.

"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 informed TechCrunch. This is not in a Test or Trial stage (that is what was happening recently in Portugal) but in an implementation stage already and Facebook has confirmed to TechCrunch that the option is being rolled out.

It's based on publicly available code that WhatsApp makes available to integrate WhatsApp messaging with third-party apps on the web or on Android.

A post by a local blog called TecnoBlog in Brazil that has been reporting several such sightings in the past has posted a picture with the Instagram Story on the left and the WhatsApp Status of the same on the right.

Facebook is testing another feature which will let you share your Instagram stories on WhatsApp status directly. However, once they do, it will be useful to those who have a habit of sharing their Instagram Story on Facebook Stories and WhatsApp Status.

The second reason is to increase the use of WhatsApp Status.

I am really waiting for this exciting feature. It should be mentioned here that other social media App like Snapchat, despite being loved by many people are not able to overcome these sister companies owned by Facebook.

Well, for those unaware, Instagram Stories, WhatsApp Status and Facebook Stories are all clones of Snapchat Stories.

Facebook often tests new methods to link some of its popular services together.

Together, this could all help Facebook grow its overall engagement and traffic footprint.
