Instagram is testing on an option of Regram that allows to post other accounts pictures to your Instagram story.

"We are always testing ways to make it easier to share any moment with friends on Instagram", the company was quoted as saying.

Normally, Instagram only lets users post photos and videos to their stories from their own account or device.

Instagram will reportedly give a privacy option to users as well, which will let people turn off the ability for others to share their posts.


TechCrunch reports that the feature is now being tested on a small percentage of Instagram users, so there's a good chance you won't see the feature active in your app.

Instagram is going to start telling you when other people take screenshots of your Stories. You'll find an "Allow Others to Reshare" toggle after hitting the Menu icon on your Profile and scrolling through the available options. Though it was rumored Instagram was testing the Regram tool for sharing the feed posts, this is the first time it is being introduced. Instagram recently updated two features of Story, to add GIFs and change in font while posting stories on Instagram.

The Regram feature is par for the course, considering Instagram launched text-only stories earlier this month allowing users to follow hashtags.

When watching a live video, users can tap the Request button to join.
