How to share WhatsApp audios on Instagram Stories ? Easy ways

Sharing WhatsApp audio directly on Instagram Stories is not a native feature of the social network. Although both belong to Facebook, the company has not yet made this type of integration between the apps available.

While the company does not officially launch the feature, there is a trick that allows you to post the conversation on Instagram. The tip is for both Android and iOS devices.

However, before publishing, remember that sharing content without authorization from one of the parties involved can be a crime. So don’t post if the other members of the conversation don’t allow it.

Check out how to share WhatsApp audio on Instagram Stories below.

To turn WhatsApp audio into a publishable file in Stories, it is necessary to take a video screenshot. For Android devices, you need to download an app for this.

Sharing songs in Stories

Did you know that in addition to photos and videos, Instagram allows you to share music snippets as a sort of soundtrack for your Stories?

To do this, simply access Stories through a camera icon in the upper left corner of the app’s home screen.

Then scroll the menu at the bottom of the screen from left to right and tap on the Music option . The Populars tab lists the biggest hits of the moment.

On the other hand, in State of mind, the songs are classified according to the “climate”, such as Upbeat, Romantic, or Mild. Finally, in Genres, the tracks are divided by musical styles, such as classics, reggae, pop, rock, among others.

If you already know which song to include, go to Search Songs and type its title or artist name. When it is displayed, tap the play icon to listen or over the song name to include it in the story.

The app also allows you to include visual effects filters and select another part of the song, in case you don’t want to use the pre-selected one. To do this, just tap the icon of a circle with three stripes inside.
