Android Users will now be Able to Directly Share Movies and Shows from Netflix App to Instagram Stories

Netflix users will now be able to share content on Instagram Stories, as announced by the video-streaming site. The feature is now live on the Android app of Netflix.

To avail, this feature, open a movie or TV show on Netflix app and press the ‘Share’ button. A list of platforms on which users can share the content is shown, select ‘Instagram Stories’ option. A cover of that movie or show will be shared on Instagram Story.

After selecting the Instagram Stories option, Netflix app will direct users to Instagram app on the device and let make personalized changes to the cover art, adding stickers, write on it, etc. Once the changes are made, users will be able to set privacy settings, either to post Story for all followers, close friends or select specific users.
