Instagram just added one of its most-requested features to Stories: the ability to re-share a post from friends.
That’s the good news. The bad news is that the feature is limited to posts you’ve been tagged in — you won’t be able to just re-share any Stories posts to your own account.
Still, the feature should be welcome news to Instagram fans who’ve long relied on a various assortment of third-party apps to re-purpose other users’ Instagram posts.
Here’s how the new Stories feature works: When a friend tags you in their Story, you’ll get the same notification you’ve gotten in the past, which lets you view the image or video in your Direct inbox.
But now, when you view the post you were tagged in, you’ll also see the option to add it to your own Story for a 24-hour period.
