DYKT You Can Now Share Netflix Titles On Instagram Stories?

Learn How To Share Netflix Titles On Instagram Stories!

DYKT you can share Netflix titles on Instagram Stories on both iPhone and Android smartphones? Here is how to do it on both platforms!

 

Sharing Netflix Titles On Instagram Stories

Netflix first announced the capability to share Netflix titles on Instagram Stories on 22 January 2019, but it was limited to their iPhone app.

That changed on 16 May 2019, when they finally released the same capability on their Android app.

Here is how you can share Netflix titles on Instagram Stories using these platforms :

Apple iPhone

The current Netflix iPhone app has an Instagram Stories share link. With this new feature, you can :

  1. Select a Netflix title you want to share
  2. Add the Netflix title’s custom art
  3. Share it to Instagram Stories, or to your friends as a direct message

The Instagram story remains visible for 24 hours, and provides a “Watch On Netflix” link back to the title page within the Netflix app.

“We’re always on the lookout for ways to make it easier for members to share the Netflix titles they’re obsessing about and help them discover something new to watch. We hope our members enjoy this new feature!” said Leigh Wong Netflix’s Head of Communications for Southeast Asia.

Android Smartphones

The latest Netflix Android app will have a new Instagram Stories share link.

  1. Select a Netflix title you want to share
  2. You can personalise the default art further to add captions, stickers, and more
  3. Share it to Instagram Stories, or to your friends as a direct message

“Sharing to Instagram Stories is now on all Android phones. You can share the shows and films you’re in love with directly from the Netflix app to your followers. Pop in a quiz for your friends to guess your favourite character from a show. Or a GIF to reflect your mood after a movie. It’s all part of what we’re doing to make it fun and easy to share what you’re watching, and help your friends find something new to watch.” said Netflix

 

Snapchat Sharing Coming Soon!

Netflix will also be adding Snapchat sharing to both iPhone and Android apps later this year.

The Ultra-Thin LG SIGNATURE OLED W7 TV Revealed!

LG Malaysia just launched the award-winning LG SIGNATURE OLED W7 TV, and it was easy to see why – it is incredibly thin! Let’s take a look at the new LG SIGNATURE OLED W7 TV, and find out what else is great about it… and how much it costs!

The LG SIGNATURE OLED W-series won more than 20 awards at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Touting a Picture-on-Wall design, the 77″ SIGNATURE OLED W7 won the CES Best of Innovation Award.

Thanks to the LG OLED display technology, the 65″ SIGNATURE OLED W7 TV boasts an ultra-thin profile of just 3.8 mm. This allows it to be directly mounted onto any wall or glass panel using only four magnetic brackets. To demonstrate this, we placed a Malaysian 50 sen coin (new type) on top of the panel, so you can better see how thin it really is.

Here is a quick video tour of the 65″ LG SIGNATURE OLED W7 TV. Check out the six magnetic brackets and the ultra-thin cable at the back.

It’s not just about looks. The LG OLED display technology not only do away with backlights, it produces perfect black, thanks to its self-lighting pixels that can be turned on and off. The SIGNATURE OLED W7 TV also supports Dolby Atmos surround sound, and HDR formats like Dolby Vision, for the ultimate cinematic experience.
