[Android] Sharing to Instagram Stories doesn't work

Status: Fixed

Plan

Premium

Country

Singapore 

Device

Samsung Note 10+

Operating System

My Question or Issue

I didn't have any issues with sharing songs to Instagram story untill today, when I press share to story it seems like instagram opens up for awhile and disappears. If I press again I get a popup from my phone saying Instagram keeps stopping. 

I've tried reinstalling Instagram, still having same issue.

Same problem here. I can press share in the Spotify app but when i switches to Instagram I only get "ragular" stories and not the song I'm trying to share.

 

Phone: Samsung S8

Spotify: 8.5.33.831

Instagram: ? (but uninstalled it today and dowloaded the latest version)

Same problem on Huawei p30 pro, newest Android version, newest Spotify and newest instagram.

 

Started yesterday 12th of December. Had no problems before.

Experiencing the same issue here with just black screen showing up. Last time I was able to share successfully was on Saturday evening. Tried yesterday and today since then and won't work. 😞

I have the same issue. California, USA, Samsung Galaxy S9.

 

I wiped caches in both apps, reinstalled both apps, and no solution. 

 

Issue always ends up with my looking at a black screen on Instagram as if I was gonna take a picture for my story and I'm waiting for my camera to activate. Screenshots of that seem to have been posted by other users here as well.
