Instagram testing 'Regram' feature, will let people share posts from others' Stories: Report

Instagram test lets some share other users' posts in Stories

It will work with accounts which are public, and is apparently being tested with only a small number of users.

Until now, users have been able to record or screenshot other people's Stories posts secretly, without being detected. If one posts a picture and their account are private then the public account will not be able to share the post directly in their story.

Now Instagram is reportedly testing the ability to Regram other people's photos in the Stories you create.

The feature, which will notify users whenever someone has screengrabbed their "Stories", is yet to be enabled by Instagram and is still in development. The ones that have public accounts possibly would not want to have their posts shared in a similar manner and Instagram allows a way out.

While it was rumoured that Instagram was testing a regram button for sharing feed posts, it may have been false or simply never introduced.

Shakked also shared an image of the privacy setting option, which explains that if the feature is on, other people can add your posts to their stories and your username will always show up with the shared post.

The firm updated this with a new feature that allows friends to request to join a live video. More recently, there was a 'Type', mode for Stories.

The -owned app launched text-only Stories in January and began allowing users to follow hashtags in December.
