Instagram, owned by Meta, is currently in the process of testing a new feature that empowers creators to showcase noteworthy fan comments on their Stories. This feature enables creators to share comments they receive on their posts or Reels with their broader audience. Adam Mosseri, the head of Instagram, shared insights about this feature on the 'IG updates' channel.

He mentioned that the company aims to provide creators with a convenient way to highlight intriguing comments. According to Mosseri, the test involves allowing public accounts to share comments from any public feed post or Reels to their Stories. This enhancement is intended to assist creators in mentioning meaningful or captivating comments made by fellow creators or fans.
