"An Instagram Story posted as a WhatsApp Status also becomes encrypted like the rest of WhatsApp", the report further notes.

WhatsApp Status will also disappear 24 hours after it was shared on the platform, just like Instagram Stories.

Instagram is again, going through a testing phase of a new feature that will allow you to cross-post Instagram Stories to WhatsApp, similar to the cross-posting that can be done between Instagram and Facebook.

This new feature will allow users to post photos, videos, emojis, stickers and GIFs on WhatsApp.

According to phone review website, Phone Arena, it is easy for Facebook to bring Instagram Stories to WhatsApp because of WhatsApp's ability to be integrated with within other apps.

This cross-posting could be useful for people who want to share their experiences on both Instagram and WhatsApp without having to double post the same content.

Facebook could soon offer users an option to post the same Story to three networks that are all owned by the tech giant.

It's based on WhatsApp's open-source code that makes it possible for third-party apps, desktop and Android apps to integrate WhatsApp messaging. It also broke WhatsApp's record of the most messages sent in one day. While both Instagram and WhatsApp are Facebook-owned, that accessible code shortcut is what's now making the cross-posting possible for users who are included in the test.

The option is not available to all Instagram users as it is still under trial. So, this feature is still under the tentative approval, wait for it until you see it appearing officially on Instagram.

More than 10 million people around the world went live on Facebook to share their New Year's Eve moments with their communities.
