People who enjoy making and sharing amusing and entertaining reels on Instagram frequently do the same on other apps too. This is why, Instagram provides the option to “Recommend on Facebook” when posting a reel, allowing you to share your reels with anyone on Facebook. Conversely, Instagram does not permit users to cross-post their reels on WhatsApp, which is owned by Facebook.

However, you can use the Share option under reels to post the link to a reel on your WhatsApp status. However, since most WhatsApp users won’t bother to open the link, it is not a practical way to share clips. Additionally, those without the Instagram app installed on their device won’t be able to view your reels.

But don’t worry posting Instagram reels as WhatsApp status without a link is simple and we will show you how you can do it easily. By doing this, you can post a reel, your own or someone else’s along with the music as a WhatsApp status. Here is a guide on how to download any Instagram reel with audio and then post it as a WhatsApp status.
