Facebook owned popular photo-sharing app, Instagram has announced a new feature called @mention Sharing. With this feature, when someone mentions you in their story, you will be able to repost that photo or video into your own Instagram story.
This is a great feature and will be loved by millions of users of Instagram. When someone mentions you in their story, you will receive a notification as a direct message from that person. And with just a single tap you can add that content to your own story.
When you will repost a story, your followes will be able to see original poster’s username and they can tap on it to go through his/her profile too. This feature is only for public accounts, meaning you can only share stories of a public account and not a private profile.
“Tap it to see that story as a sticker – you can scale, rotate and position it and add creative tools like text or stickers on to it as well.” Instagram announced via a blog post. This new update is now available on both iOS and Android as a port of the Instagram version 48.
According to a previous report, Instagram will soon bring a new feature via which users can post long videos of up to an hour. As said many time, Instagram keeps on bringing new features to the platform and these long videos can change the entire platform. Stay tuned to Sid Tech for latest tech news, deals, reviews and more.
