Netflix today launched a new Instagram integration that's designed to allow Instagram users to share their favorite movies and TV shows in Stories, reports Variety.

The feature can be used by selecting a title of choice within the Netflix app for iOS devices, tapping on the "Share" icon, and then selecting "Instagram Stories" as an option.

"We're always on the lookout for ways to make it easier for members to share the Netflix titles they're obsessing about and help them discover something new to watch," said a Netflix spokesperson. "We hope our members enjoy this new feature!"
From there, Netflix opens up Instagram with a screen featuring the show's name and artwork, with an option to share it to Stories or send it to close friends.

Instagram has been allowing third-party apps to integrate with Stories since May 2018, and other integrations include Spotify and SoundCloud.

Seeing ads from companies is annoying enough. Thankfully I don’t do Instagram or else it appears I’d be getting ads from friends as well in this future world we have incoming. It’s looking less like Minority Report and more like Ready Player One.

I signed up for Instagram years ago but never would have if I knew it was a social media site. I though it was a photo editor app. Does not matter I have not signed in years most likely my account is inactive from not using it.

Indeed, in this timeline, we are all living in the most boring version of Ready Player One.

Makes sense now why my Instagram story clip got removed last week. I recorded a clip of my tv from my couch and the video was, within just 2 minutes, flagged for copyright infringement as it recognized the exact episode and segment of the (hilarious) new girl clip I posted.
