A new feature about Instagram stories was published 3 months ago. Users are able to post stories to Facebook with the new improvement. Now it seems that similar feature will be done about Whatsapp. When the new feature goes to public Instagram and Whatsapp will be connected. It is good to share stories on Instagram especially if you have thousands of followers. But if you don’t have you shouldn’t worry as you can buy real Instagram followers.
The new feature was first announced by TechCrunch and according to its news Instagram is making tests on this feature. So, videos, gifs or photos will be posted directly to Whatsapp and they will be deleted after 24 hours just as it happens on Instagram.
What Will The New Instagram Feature Come to Us?
According to an explanation made by a spokesman of Instagram they are always testing new features to make more steps and increase the quality of user experience. So, it will be easier to share anything with people around you.
As we can understand from the explanation the new feature is being tested on a small group of users. Users will have an option to share to Whatsapp from Instagram it is still necessary to hit send button in Whatsapp to publish the story. That means instagram and whatsapp will get same stories.
A reader of the website shared a picture comparing to stories that published in both apps. There is Instagram story on the left side and Whatsapp story on the right side. There is a difference that Instagram icon at the left-bottom of the screen can be seen on Whatsapp story.
A Rising Feature In a Short Time
As it is known well stories have been so popular since it was started to be used. It is also interesting that stories have been made more common around users. First, we saw it on Facebook and now we see it on Whatsapp. Of course there should be important reasons why Facebook take much important of that.
What is the Aim of Facebook?
It is not hard to guess the first reason. According to us, Facebook wants to improve its usability and popularity. As we remember, although it is not an old feature that has been used for long it has managed to be so popular in a short time. However, it is also interesting that stories was a feature of Snapchat. But it wasn’t popular around users at those times.
According to explanation made by Facebook, there were 300 million daily active users of Instagram stories in last November. It is a huge number and it is also well-known fact that Whatsapp has huge number of users. So, it is aimed to increase traffic especially in those countries where Whatsapp is preferred more than Facebook or its Messenger app. In this way, Facebook may get new users via Whatsapp.
We guess that another reason may be to increase the usage of Whatsapp status. Although it is used much for messaging and sharing multimedia photos and videos, people don’t look at Whatsapp status much. So, we see good reasons why this feature will be included. That will be fun for those who like to share stories to post their stories directly to Whatsapp. We will see this new Instagram feature will be popular like other ones.
