My Question or Issue

When I try to share a song to my Instagram story from the Spotify app, it posts without the Spotify sticker in the top left corner. It just posts a screenshot (attached below) with no way of linking back to the Spotify app to play the track. 

 

My phone software and Spotify app are both up to date and I have tried deleting and redownloading both multiple times. This feature used to work no problem but just stopped one day.

Hey folks,

Thanks for your patience while we looked into this issue.

We’re happy to say that this should now be fixed for everyone!

If you’re still experiencing this issue, can you make a new thread in the iOS board? We'll get back to you there.

Thanks!

My Question or Issue

 I try to share songs to my Instagram story but after adding them the play on Spotify button won’t apper only cover picture and name of the song. Nothing clickable… my system and all the apps are updated also tried to reinstall both Spotify and insta apps. Any suggestions? 

 

Greetings! Daniel

Hey folks,

 

Thanks for providing us with that info.

 

Could you try updating your Instagram app and restarting your device to see if that fixes things?

 

Keep us posted!
