Instagram, a Meta-owned platform has been reportedly testing a new feature to let users quickly access their recently shared Reels, which will make it easier for them to reshare later to other friends.
A Turkey-based account named Dijital Aglar shared a post about the new feature, indicating that the photo/video/reel sharing platform is showing a row at the top of users' DMs titling the "Latest Shares" label, reports TechCrunch.

The report further stated that the screenshots posted by the account show that the shared post will also display the avatars of the friends with whom you shared a Reel.
For instance, if users share one short video multiple times, it will show it only once with the avatar of the friend they last shared it with.
