Meta-owned American photo and video-sharing social networking service Instagram is testing a new feature that will allow creators to share notable fan comments to their Stories, such as comments on their posts or Reels.

Instagram head Adam Mosseri stated in a post on the ‘IG updates’ channel that the company wants to make it easier for creators to highlight interesting comments.

“We’re testing the ability for public accounts to share comments from any public feed post or Reels to their stories. The idea is to help creators highlight important or interesting comments from fellow creators or fans,” he said.

Creators who participate in this test can highlight a comment by swiping it and tapping the “Add to story icon”. In the Stories feed, the comment will appear alongside the original post.

However, Mosseri did not provide any information about the feature’s public rollout or the size of the test.

Meanwhile, Instagram is working on a feature that will allow users to create audio notes.

Mosseri said on his broadcast channel that “we haven’t started testing anything publicly yet, but we’re working on the ability to create audio notes to share with your friends”.
