Sharing on Instagram Stories allowed from third-party apps!

Sharing on Instagram Stories

Instagram is trying it’s best to make Stories more interesting with continuously evolving its features.

In a recent update, sharing on Instagram Stories will be allowed from third-party apps.

Rather than screenshotting or uploading pictures, users can directly upload them to the Stories. Hit the upload button and seamlessly share the picture or the video of the favorite song or movie on the Spotify or SoundCloud.

With the GoPro app’s integration, the content is pulled directly into the Instagram Camera, from where one can edit in the Instagram app and add to the story or send via Direct.   

The best part is that a user is not required to connect their Instagram Account to other apps in order to share their content on Stories.

Along with this, Instagram is also unlocking the ability for third parties to design unique, interactive camera experiences for their followers.
