Cross-post stories

Facebook has started testing a feature that will finally allow you to cross-post Stories to Instagram.

Facebook released a tool that gives you the capability to cross-post Instagram Stories to Facebook way back in 2017.

However, that tool has no capability to cross-post the other way around.

App researcher Jane Manchun Wong has discovered the experimental “Share Story to Instagram” toggle within the Story Privacy settings.

She then switched it on activates a “Share to Story” button.

The company has confirmed that it has started testing the feature to make it easier to share moments with more people.

This new feature will allow you to share particular Stories with friends on both platforms.

However, Facebook and Instagram have different audiences.

The social network also told that it will continue exploring options to simplify and improve how Stories work across its apps.

It’s still unclear, if the feature will also sync a Story’s view status across Facebook’s applications to prevent people from having to watch the same ones more than once.
