Netflix for iOS picks up a handy new Instagram Stories share option

This integration began rolling out in Netflix for iOS today

You can now share your favorite movies and television shows on Netflix to your Instagram Stories. That’s because the video-streaming company today updated its mobile app for iPhone and iPad with tappable artwork when watching movies or TV shows.

According to Variety, sharing your favorite movies and television shows from Netflix on Instagram Stories is pretty straightforward. Just select the title of your choice within Netflix’s iOS app and use the Share feature to send it to Instagram, just like that.

From there, you can add the artwork to a Story or share it directly with your contacts. Netflix artworks in Instagram Stories also link back to Netflix.

This feature works with both original and licensed content.

We’re always on the lookout for ways to make it easier for members to share the Netflix titles they’re obsessing about and help them discover something new to watch. We hope our members enjoy this new feature!

This is possible thanks to Instagram’s Stories API that became available in May 2018. Some of the other apps that take advantage of Instagram integration include Spotify and Soundcloud.

This feature is available in Instagram for iOS starting today. They’re working on bringing this integration to Android but no time frame was provided at press time.
