At the moment there is no tool that allows you to save and publish from automatically although Instagram has been testing a button that may be launched. At the moment you have two options: saving the story and uploading it to WhatsApp or using the “Share in …” button
1. Save and share: The most useful and recommended way is that you save the story you share on Instagram, since you will have to upload it manually. The steps to do so are the following:

Another option is to share it as a link that will automatically lead to your story. In that case you must do the following:
- Go to the story you want to share on Instagram
