I was about to say that I hadn't a clue to the answer to your question, Sam. And then I saw Bob Stewart's response, so now I do have a clue.

I was going to say no because Instagram is only for pictures but was curious if that changed!

You can post the photo that you used on AR to Instagram and then add the link to your AR post manually.  Hashtag it, make a short comment/intro and you're done!  It only takes a minute!

Makes perfect sense to me.  We need to understand the platforms we are using or are considering using.

Makes sense.  The best I've done is post through Hootsuite to IG.  My photo with some text.  I think I've gotten a link in there, but not sure.  May be possible to do, but not directly.  IG won't let you post from anything other than your phone.

Sam Shueh although most platforms don't have an instagram posting off their site as AR does not. Keep in mind the following:  

Do I have enough time to manage another social network? Is it even worth joining Instagram if my business / products / services aren't visually friendly? Do I have the right resources to create quality photos and videos? If you’re questioning whether or not Instagram has a place in your social media marketing strategy, you’re not alone.

According to Rival IQ’s 2015 Social Media Trends research, 38% of marketers stated that Instagram was unimportant, with another 20% stating it was only somewhat important. As the fastest growing major social network with one of the most engaged audiences, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to overlook Instagram's value. 

In less than five years, the network has grown to a whopping 300 million users who in one day share an average of 70 million photos while liking 2.5 billion.

Instagram is worth the investment.

Thanks for asking the question.  

Of course, I'm currently not using Instagram.  

Oh well, more information for the virtual cocktail party.

It is all about images but then again so is Pinterest. Maybe there is a way around it in the future.
