The move does not come as a surprise knowing that the latter has joined the Facebook fold in late 2014 after Mark Zuckerberg's company acquired the instant messaging service for $19 billion. It would make sense this feature exist as it would finally give some goal to WhatsApp stories which most people tend to forget it even exist.

This will add to WhatsApp's many new features that had just been released a year ago.

A Facebook spokesperson has already confirmed the ongoing testing to the tech news outlet.

WhatsApp set another record on New Year's eve.

These are the 3 artists who sold the most albums in 2017
The top streaming track, in terms of both video and audio, was " Despacito " by Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber. Media analysts Nielsen Music found that hip-hop and R&B represented 24.5 percent of all music consumption in the USA past year .

Instagram is trialling a new sharing feature that will let you export your Stories to WhatsApp in Brazil, with a worldwide expansion rumoured to take place in the not-too-distant future. The Facebook-owned chat service says that India is its biggest market and the numbers of New Year's Eve are a proof of it. WhatsApp users in India sent more than 20 billion messages on New Year's Eve, the company announced on Thursday.

The stories shared on WhatsApp will appear in the status bar and just like Insta stories will disappear after 24 hours.

Instagram Stories has come a long way since Facebook introduced the Snapchat-inspired feature to the photo-sharing platform.

The option to syndicate Instagram Stories to Facebook Stories is available for the US users and will be officially rolled out for everyone around the world. It's pretty popular, boasting of over 300 million daily active users. They did that with the main Facebook app anyways, so this makes sense. We'll let you know when Stories can hop on over to WhatsApp for everyone. Facebook took notice of this past year, allowing people to directly cross-post their Story to Facebook.
