Instagram users will soon get a new “Repost” feature that will allow them to re-share other people’s posts and publish them on their own profiles. Here is how it will work.

It is quite time consuming.
But it looks like Instagram is now preparing to wrap up this hectic process while giving users the ability to repost other users’ posts and stories, social media The company confirmed to TechCrunch. The report further confirms that Instagram has not yet released the repost feature publicly as it plans to begin testing the feature with a select number of users soon.
How will repost on Instagram work
The new Instagram repost feature was first spotted by social media consultant Matt Navarra, who shared a screenshot depicting the new features on his Twitter handle. The screenshot shows that the upcoming feature will likely add a new tab to all the posts and videos that users have re-shared on their accounts. This new tab will find its place along with the existing tagged posts, reels, and photo tabs on the profile.
