Netflix has enabled sharing to Instagram Stories for Android phone users, after having launched it for iPhone users earlier this year. All members can now share the Netflix titles to Instagram Stories and help their friends and followers discover something new to watch.
Simply follow these steps to share Netflix to Instagram Stories:
- Ensure you are using the latest version of the Netflix app
- Navigate to any title on the Netflix app and hit the ‘Share’ button
- Select “Instagram Stories” from the list of apps, and be taken directly to Instagram Stories where you can have fun with the title’s background art and text sticker
- When ready, post directly to your Stories.
A shared story is visible for 24 hours and provides a “Watch on Netflix” link back to the title page within the Netflix app.
As earlier with iOS, no member data is being shared with Instagram – only the title art and link. Friends and followers can click on the link in the Instagram Story to view the title on their Netflix app.
This is part of Netflix’s ongoing efforts to make the mobile app more engaging for all its fans, connect with others over shows they love, and start conversations around it.
Sharing to Snapchat is also now available for Android users, after having launched earlier this year for iPhone users.
