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.

100% this started yesterday. I've been sharing a song each day since January and this is the first time I've got this issue.

Hi @Peter ,

 

This is obviously a wide spread issue around the world. Perhaps it's related to the most recent app update for Instagram on Android.

 

We know Spotify and Instagram can work together to resolve this! Can we get an update or Estimated Time of Resolution (ETR)?

I have been experiencing the same problem on OnePlus 7 Pro for a couple of days by now. Other sharing possibilities seem to be working, so my guess is on Instagram with this bug, since I have had other kind of story sharing issues with Instagram a few weeks earlier.

Spotify version: 8.5.33.831

Instagram version: 122.0.0.29.238

Device: Moto g7 power, OS Android 9

 

Similar to above posting pictures, Instagram story option is in the Spotify app, but when Instagram opens, it doesn't generate the song, just pulls up to a black camera feed. Tried clearing both caches and uninstalling and reinstalling both apps multiple times

Seems to be an Instagram problem as I can't seem to share Soundcloud links either.
