IGTV Can Now Be Shared On Your Instagram Story

Monday 5th November 2018

Instagram announced a feature that allows users to share their IGTV videos on their story.

This feature has only been available on business accounts so far. Business accounts would be able to share a link in the story, which would then include a swipe up to see the full video. Personal accounts are now able to share the same function.

IGTV was released in June earlier this year, but as a standalone app, had no connection to Instagram aside from the button in the app. Now, this link between IGTV and Instagram stories can potentially increase the viewership on the platform. There has been no indication of how successful IGTV has been since its release.

Instagram was also recently in the news, as it was announced that Instagram was used more than Snapchat in the teen market.
