Facebook-owned Instagram announced a change to its “Stories” feature which will allow users to instantly repost a “Story” they are tagged in, as theirs.

“When someone mentions you in their story, you receive a notification in your ‘Direct message’ thread with that person. Now you’ll see an option to add that content to your own story,” Instagram wrote in a blog post late on Thursday.

The feature “@mention Sharing” only applies to public accounts and is available as part of Instagram version 48 on Android and iOS.

The original poster’s username will appear automatically when a “Story” is reposted on a different account.

Users will have choices and options to scale, rotate, position and add creative tools like text and stickers to the reposted “Story”, Instagram added. (IANS)

Photo-messaging app Instagram is testing a new feature that allows users to react to “Stories” with emojis, just as they can react on Facebook.

The feature being tested in the latest version of the app shows six emojies — clapping hands; laughing with tears; heart-eyes; shocked/surprised; sad; and fire.

It also appears that to react — and to get emoji reactions — both the user and the uploader must have the updated version of Instagram installed on their devices.

When asked about the test, an Instagram spokesperson gave IANS an affirmative answer.
