UPDATED: You Can Now Share What You're Watching on Netflix on Your Instagram Stories
Now you can show the world what you're losing sleep over.
(SPOT.ph) So, you're binge-watching episodes of You after seeing that Penn Badgley and Shay Mitchell went to Manila. Or you're watching Sex Education because your friend suggested it. Or maybe you're rewatching old episodes of Friends, How I Met Your Mother, or Brooklyn Nine-Nine just because. But how do you show your Instagram followers or—let's be real—your crush what you're watching? You're probably gonna ready your desk or your bed for a flatlay shot to post. Now you don't have to, because you can finally share what you're watching on Netflix and post it directly on your Instagram Stories.
To use the feature, all you have to do is open the Netflix app, select a title, and click the share button beside the rate button. You'll have the option to share what you're watching via text, Facebook Messenger, Twitter, and Instagram Stories.
When you select Instagram Stories, the show or movie's art card will appear and you can add your own comments, GIFs, stickers, and polls. (Here's your crush's chance to slide into your Instagram DMs.)
The story you post will come with a "Watch on Netflix" link, which will make it easier for your followers to keep up with what you're watching.
The feature was first made available for iPhone users in January, and introduced on Android in May. Pretty soon, you can use it on Snapchat, too.
UPDATE (May 16, 2019): This article has been updated following the announcement of the feature's availability on Android.
