Instagram ‘Regram’ Test Lets Others Use Your Photos in Their Stories

We reported in November 2017 that Instagram had begun testing a “Regram” feature similar to Facebook’s Share feature, which lets people repost your content on their pages with full attribution. Now Instagram is reportedly testing the ability to Regram other people’s photos in the Stories you create.

TechCrunch reports that the feature is currently being tested on a small percentage of Instagram users, so there’s a good chance you won’t see the feature active in your app.

“Instagram purposefully lacks a ‘Regram’ button to promote original sharing, but it’s easing up on that philosophy when it comes to Stories,” TechCrunch writes. “Instagram now confirms to TechCrunch that it’s testing an option that lets you share public feed posts from other users to your Story.

“This could let you add commentary and overlaid stickers to a meme, celebrity post or even a friend’s photo. For users whose lives aren’t so interesting, resharing could give them something to post.”

Here’s a short video by Zachary Shakked showing how the feature works:
