Instagram Previews have resurfaced on Twitter, which means that when anyone shares an Instagram link on Twitter, a preview of that post will appear — as is the case with previews of websites in general.

Instagram Previews were discontinued in 2012 after the then photo-sharing platform was acquired by Meta (formerly Facebook).

The feature is rolling out on Android, iOS and web versions of Twitter, and people should start seeing them in the following weeks.

The nine-year-old feud between the two social media giants seems to have ended with this change, which brings back previews. Earlier, Twitter had also removed a feature that let people find those they follow on Instagram.

Last month, Instagram rolled out the Collabs feature for all creators worldwide. This will allow creators to co-author posts and reels and also share the engagement.

Following the major outage faced by the Meta-owned companies, including Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp, the platform also announced a new feature that’ll directly notify people about service outages or technical issues using the in-app Activity feed section.
