To post stories on Instagram without opening the main Instagram app, there is an easy solution. To do so, users must first download the “Threads from Instagram” app from the Google Play Store or the App Store. This app allows users to easily post photos or videos to Instagram Stories without leaving the main app.
Instagram users are constantly searching for a fast way to share stories without actually opening the app. This saves time while publishing the next article online. Instagram Stories are intended to vanish from your profile after 24 hours.
Although users exercise caution when uploading images and videos to their Feed, Stories are often far more populated in comparison due to their disappearing feature.
Here is how to post Instagram Stories using Threads
First download Threads from the Instagram app. Now log in with your Instagram account, and complete the setup process.
If you download the app on a smartphone that does not have the main Instagram app installed, you will have to manually enter your login information. To post an Instagram Story without opening the main Instagram app, follow the steps below.
Threads will ask you to pick close friends with whom you want to share your Instagram story after you log in. If you’ve previously created a Close Friends list, those users will already be reviewed. You can add more users before clicking Finished.
You have to grant some permissions asked by the InstagramThreads app. Swiping up after completing the setup process will allow you to add a picture or video to the Threads app.
In Threads, you will find the same filters and editing features as in the main. Although you cannot add audio, polls, or questions to Stories via the Threads app.
Now, at the bottom of the list, click on the key upward arrow button. Pick Your Story > Share. If you want a few people to see your Story, you can select them from the Close Friends list.
Done, your story will be posted automatically without opening the main app.
