Instagram doesn't allow you to share other people's stories unless you've been tagged in the post. However, you can use a screen recording trick to repost videos of friends in your own story. IPhone (iOS) natively features the Screen Recording tool, while Android users should use free apps like AirDroid to film everything that goes on on their mobile phone.
That way you can create a copy of any video or story post to share someone else's Stories. Learn how to repost clips in the following tutorial with iPhone or Android.

Step 4. Use your finger to pull the ends of the video timeline in half, as shown in the image below. This will cause excerpts where Control Center appears or a screen other than Instagram is removed from the file. Before you save, check out what your edit looked like when playing the video. Tap "Ok" and then "Save as New Clip". This will create a new version of the screenshot without the snippets you cut;
