Netflix has announced that its Android users can now share their favourite movies and shows to their Instagram Stories directly from the Netflix app. Earlier this year, Netflix had originally introduced this feature for iOS users.
Netflix users can simply select the title they want to share, tap the 'Share' button, and add it directly to their Instagram Story. They can personalise the default art further to add captions, stickers, and more. As is the norm, the story will remain visible for 24 hours, and provide a "Watch on Netflix" link back to the title page on the Netflix app. Users can also directly share the titles with their contacts on Instagram.
Netflix said, “Sharing to Instagram Stories is now on all Android phones. You can share the shows and films you’re in love with directly from the Netflix app to your followers. Pop in a quiz for your friends to guess your favourite character from a show. Or a GIF to reflect your mood after a movie. It’s all part of what we’re doing to make it fun and easy to share what you’re watching, and help your friends find something new to watch.”
With Spotify announcing their own version of stories, it’ll only be a matter of time before every other app besides Netflix will jump on this trend. Hopefully, Netflix have other surprises in store for us down the line.
