If you use both freeware and cross-platform instant messaging app WhatsApp and photo-sharing application Instagram, then social networking site Facebook can issue a special feature for you. These features will be especially loved by Instagram Lovers. According to the reports, the company is testing a new feature, so Instagram users will be able to share their Insta Stories as WhatsApp status Directly on WhatsApp.

However, users will have to press the 'send' button to post the story by going into the messaging app for it. WhatsApp Story and Instagram Story both goes live for 24 hours, until they are already deleted. Those users who like to update the story in both places will have enough time to save this feature.

At the moment, Facebook is only testing this feature with some users as there is no official confirmation about this. Users will be able to share pictures, videos and GIF files without any hesitation via this feature. Because all these content will be encrypted.

If you like Instagram stories, WhatsApp stories and Facebook stories, you will be happy to know that Instagram stories will be shared directly to Facebook. However this feature has been made available only to US Instagram users.
