Instagram announced on Thursday (7) a function for users mentioned in Stories to share the publication on their profile natively. The feature does away with the old manual trick to show followers a story in which it was mentioned: taking a screenshot and publishing it as if it were a new photo in the tool.
Upon being marked in a story, the user will receive (as already done) a message notification on Direct, in conversation with the person who mentioned it. However, with the novelty, a button with the phrase "Add this to your Stories" indicates the option to share the same content through the platform itself.

The novelty works in the same way as sharing posts from other users' feeds in Stories. When you add your friend's image, it appears as a sticker, without taking up the entire screen. It is then possible to resize, rotate and position the figure the way you prefer.
If you want to customize the Stories posted by the user, you can use the text, GIFs and emojis resources normally. At the top of the story, the name of the original author of the publication will be displayed.
According to the social network, the update is part of version 48 of Instagram for Android and iOS (iPhone). In addition, only public accounts will be able to have the Stories shared, leaving users with private profiles always with the images in safety.
