New Delhi: In the latest move toward integration, Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, the parent company of Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp, is bringing a new feature to WhatsApp users. The upcoming feature allows users to effortlessly share their WhatsApp status updates as Stories on Instagram.
This option, currently in beta testing for Android devices with version 220.127.116.11, comes as part of Meta’s strategy to harmonize features across its social media platforms. (Also Read: Banks Will Open Five Days In A Week? Check What Banking Association Has Demanded)

Potential Quality Differences
While the new feature will save time for users who share content across platforms, there may be differences in the quality of Stories on Instagram. This variation is attributed to the distinct photo and video editing capabilities between WhatsApp and Instagram.
Enhancing User Experience With AI Chats
Apart from this integration, WhatsApp is making strides in improving user experience. The platform, under Meta’s ownership, has introduced an AI chat feature.
Users now have the convenience of engaging with an AI chatbot by accessing a dedicated button above the new chats icon in the Chats tab. This streamlined approach aims to speed up the initiation of AI-powered chats, making interactions more efficient for users.
Meta’s AI Chatbot Evolution
Meta, led by Mark Zuckerberg, introduced the AI chatbot powered by Meta AI in September. Initially tested in a specific segment within the USA, the AI chatbot has undergone refinements.
The latest WhatsApp beta for Android version 18.104.22.168 introduces a dedicated button on the home screen, simplifying access to the AI chatbot and enhancing user experience.
