This will be done as part of the Federation work. I'm currently working on federating media to other services, this means:

  1. Discovering a user on another services (looking up the URLs to send the information to)
  2. Negotiating the OAuth (so we're authorized / permitted to make requests to the other server)
  3. Creating a task to federation (send over the media) to the other instance

Once that code is in-place we can then create the code to "subscribe" or "follow" another user and have the media posted to "public" or their "followers" end up in your inbox feed.

TLDR: Yep, we're on it, there are just several steps which must happen prior to this issue specifically being addressed.
