During Facebook's F8 developer conference Tuesday, the company revealed a new feature that allows individuals to share Spotify content via their Instagram Stories.

'You can also minimize the video and continue the chat while doing other things on Instagram'. You don't have to connect your Facebook or Instagram account to other apps in order to share to Stories.

Just tap the share button in an app like Spotify to share what you're listening to directly into the camera. Now when you're in an app like Spotify and select the sharing tool, you will see Instagram Stories as a default option. Hitting that would take you to a feed of other animal-related accounts and hashtags.

Instagram will also add AR camera effects that were brought to Facebook a year ago. We are waiting for a comment from Instagram and will update the story when applicable.

Recent, Instagram announced that soon users will be able to store their data just like Facebook.

Instagram Stories is getting a new way to share directly to the platform.

As for face filters, Instagram is opening up this feature to 3rd parties, like those that you follow.

Instagram is launching interactive camera "experiences" that will allow users to grab snippets from other accounts and add them to their Stories. The song, album, or playlist you've chosen will then be presented with a sticker that you can move, resize, and rotate.

If you're using an iOS device, you don't even need a third-party editing app, because you can simply drag the image or video left or right to crop it down to the flawless size. Wong has dived into the Instagram app code and uncovered some evidence that it could be testing new capabilities that will make using the app a whole lot easier.

Voice and video calling are very popular on WhatsApp, and we're excited to share that group calling will be coming in the months ahead. Facebook also is bringing support for third-party AR filters to Facebook Messenger and Facebook Lite apps. A new camera icon will be available on the platform.

Topics are being added to Instagram's new Explore design. You can also watch all F8 keynotes on the Facebook for Developers Page.
