I saw this feature coming ( ‘Share to Facebook Story’) which will go live right beneath your WhatsApp Status, whatsApp is finally bringing the anticipated feature that will allow users to share Status updates to Facebook Stories as well.
The feature will show up for all users who have signed up for the beta program if you haven’t you can also. Users won’t need to link their WhatsApp accounts to Facebook to use this feature. The app uses the data-sharing API that is used by several other apps as well, to share user Status as a Facebook Story.
To ensure privacy and safety, WhatsApp is not linking the two platforms but is only using the data-sharing API on Android and iOS, just like every other app does. “It’s making use of the same iOS and Android data-sharing APIs as every other app, meaning data is transferred between the apps on-device. Even if you share data to another Facebook-owned service like Instagram, WhatsApp says the two posts will be separate events in Facebook’s systems, and they will not be linked.”
Clicking on it will take you to the Facebook app, where you can then post it as a Story. This option can be used to post your status to other apps like Instagram, Gmail, and Google Photos as well, the report states.
