You can now Share Your Whatsapp Status as Facebook Stories

This is part of the vision of Facebook to unify three apps under its umbrella – Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp. This feature was made available to beta testers in June this year, and now it’s rolling out to all Android users globally.

You can share your Instagram stories to Facebook, and you can now also share your WhatsApp Status Update to Facebook stories. Here is how to do that…

Before sharing the WhatsApp Status to the Facebook Story, you can change the Facebook Story privacy settings directly from WhatsApp to choose from Public, Friends and connections, Friends, or Custom.

How to Share Your WhatsApp Status as Facebook Stories
  1. Go to ‘My Status’
  2. Tap on the Hamburger icon next to the Status you want to share to Facebook
  3. Tap on ‘Share to Facebook’
  4. You will see your Facebook profile picture at the bottom with your default privacy setting where you can choose from Public, Friends, or custom.
  5. Tap on ‘Share now’ to share the Story

Once a WhatsApp Status is posted as Facebook Story, it will stay there for 24 hours. A WhatsApp Status can be shared as Facebook Story multiple times and it stays there even if you delete the original WhatsApp status.

The WhatsApp updates shared to Facebook Stories appear only as a screenshot. So, if you are sharing a WhatsApp update that carries a link, it will not be clickable on Facebook but appear only as a picture with text.

Update your global WhatsApp to the latest to get this new feature rolling…
