“When someone mentions you in their story, you receive a notification in your Direct message thread with that person — now, you’ll see an option to add that content to your own story,” it adds.

“Tap it to see that story as a sticker — you can scale, rotate and position it and add creative tools like text or stickers on to it as well.”

Once you’ve crossposted the story to your reel, the original poster’s handle will be tappable and visible on the story itself.

Notably this update’s only for those with public accounts.

It’s available on Android and iOS at the time of writing.
