According to Mashable, the new sharing tool will send the cover image of the show or movie you are watching to Instagram.

Unfortunately, the streaming service has yet to offer the same update to Android users.
New subscribers will be affected immediately while existing users will be phased into the new cost over three months.
The Basic plan, which allows you to watch on one screen at a time raised from $7.99 to 8.99.
The most popular Standard option allows users to watch in HD and on up to two screens at a time. It will raise from $10.99 to $12.99.
The final plan option, Premium, allows HD and Ultra HD viewing on up to four screens. It will raise from $13.99 to $15.99.
Additionally, Netflix moochers may be in trouble soon.
Software company Synamedia unveiled some new technology during CES in Las Vegas that allow streaming companies to use artificial intelligence to detect and flag users who are logged on the account in various locations. This means Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu users are at risk for getting kicked off accounts that don’t belong to them.
