Multiple platforms owned by the social media giant Meta are inter-connected with each other. For example Instagram is connected to Threads and Facebook, which is also connected to Messenger. The Mark Zuckerberg-led company is now planning to connect its photo sharing platform Instagram to the popular messaging platform WhatsApp.
According to a report by WABetaInfo, the company has rolled out a new update (version up to 188.8.131.52.) through the Google Play Beta Program. The update reveals that the company is developing an optional feature that will allow Android users to share their status updates to Instagram. The report also claims that the feature will be available with an upcoming update of the app.
WhatsApp is also reportedly working on an optional feature to offer users the ability to automatically share their status updates to Facebook Story. This feature will simplify the process of updating one’s status across different apps and will help users to save time at times when they want to share the same content on both Facebook and WhatsApp.
How will it work
The report also includes a screenshot that shows the option that will allow users to status updates to Facebook. The image shows that WhatsApp is also working to enhance the sharing feature to make it compatible with Instagram, which is expected to become available in the coming days.
This feature will not only help users save time but also enhances the reliability and consistency of sharing content across WhatsApp and Instagram. Instead of having to create and post separate updates on these two separate platforms, users will be able to share the same one on both apps with a single step. Moreover, this feature will be optional and users can decide whether or not they want to enable it.
