Did you know that Instagram allows you to share another user’s IGTV video to your own Instagram Story, so that your viewers and followers can watch the video themselves? Our guide will show you how this works.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the Instagram application on iOS.

Step 1: On the IGTV video you wish to share to your story, tap the paper airplane icon at the bottom of the screen. Note: If you’re viewing the video in a preview on the main IGTV feed, tap the video to make the paper airplane icon (and other video controls) appear.

Step 2: Tap “Add video to your story.”

From there, you’ll be taken to the Instagram Stories editing screen, where you’ll have the option to edit your post by adding stickers, text, drawings, etc., before sharing it just as you would a normal Instagram Stories post.
