Snap announced that Snapchat users will soon be able to share their posts on other social media. Once a user chooses "Share Story" they'll see the options for where they'd like to share the link for the Story outside of Snapchat. It the past, Snap CEO Evan Spiegel has made a point to distance the company from them.

Previously, Snapchat users didn't have the option to share Snapchat content outside of the app, but the new update, available on the new, redesigned Snapchat - now available to a limited number of users (such as Snapchat users in Canada and Australia) - will allow users of the app to send a link to view content on by sending on a link or sharing it on another platform.

Snapchat is to allow users to share Stories created on the platform with those outside the app for the first time.

The company has said that the new feature will only work on Public Stories, Our Stories or Official Stories and not to stories that users only share with their friends.

Crucially the sharing element only applies to Stories which are high-profile or publicly viewable.

While now WABetaInfo, the tech news website has reported that Instagram is testing this new feature, but only internally.

Once clicked, the link takes visitors to an embedded player on Snapchat's web portal, where the clip can be viewed.

For a company that enjoys keeping its user generated content within its app's walls, it's a big step for Snap.

As of today, anyone using the redesigned version of Snapchat (launched November 2017) can use the new sharing feature.

To do this, users should open the app and press and hold the Story's icon in the Discover portion of the app.

There are three different types of stories that will be available to share via the app, Official Stories, Our Stories, and Search Stories.

If a Snapchatter has an Official Story, their name will appear under an Official Stories header when you search for them in the Add Friends screen.
