Netflix adds Instagram Stories support for directly sharing shows

Netflix is just about everywhere, thanks in no small part to its vast and largely successful original content library, and as of today, it can now be found in yet another place: Instagram Stories.

The new integration makes it possible for Netflix users to directly share their favorite content with followers, but not everyone has access to it.

Before Facebook made it possible to directly share content from third-party apps, Instagram users had to take a screenshot from a different app and then share that image in their Instagram Story.

The workaround is common, but cumbersome, potentially resulting in lower quality images and requiring more time overall to complete the process.

Instagram Stories got support for directly sharing from third-party websites last year, and now Netflix is taking advantage of the feature.

Users can open Netflix’s in-app sharing option — which has been around for a while and includes messaging platforms like WhatsApp — to find the new Stories option.
