However, WhatsApp is working on the feature to allow users share their WhatsApp status with images, gifs, videos, and text directly as Facebook stories.
The feature has been available on Instagram for some time now, users can share their Instagram stories automatically as Facebook stories. Unlike Instagram, this feature would be manual for WhatsApp, that is, users will have to share their WhatsApp status updates manually as Facebook stories.
