Hey folks,

 

Thanks for reaching out to us about this on the Community.

 

We are currently working with Instagram to make this option available for everyone soon!

 

Right now we cannot provide an exact timeframe on when it's going to be out to everybody.

 

In the meantime, we recommend you keep both your apps updated.

 

Thanks for your patience!

Hey @5kz6il67-a_w, welcome to our Spotify Community!

 

We'd recommend reinstalling the app by following the steps at https://support.spotify.com/article/reinstallation-of-spotify/. Also, the best option would be to check if your Instagram is up to date too.

 

If you're getting any error messages, a screenshot would be helpful.

 

Take care :)

Try updating the software on your phone maybe?

Multiple people saying reinstall doesn't change anything, both apps already updated, etc and we still don't have the IG story share option. Give us a real fix please....

Hey all,

 

Sounds like it's happening for a few people now, on a number of mobile devices. We'd like all of you to try the following:

 

Tap the three dots > Share > Instagram Story. It should be the second option on Android and the third on iOS.


If you're not seeing this, be sure to reinstall not just Spotify, but Instagram too. If you see the option to display more sharing options, always open it to check if it's at the bottom of the list.

If you then see the option to share through Instagram after that, you should see the pop-up 'Spotify wants to open Instagram' in the Spotify app. You'll then be navigated to Instagram, where you can preview the songs before clicking 'Send to >'.

 

If it's not working still, get back to us with:

 

  • Your exact device make / model
  • Your Spotify app version
  • Your Instagram app version

Thanks.

ItUninstalled both Instagram and Spotify and the option still isn't there. I click more and the only Instagram share opinion is to direct message the song to someone.

Phone is a Motorola Droid Turbo 2 
Instagram version 58.0.0.12.73
Spotify version 8.4.67.886

Hello, 

I seem to be having the same issue. I have followed the steps you recommended and I still can't access the feature.

I have a Huawei P10 VTR-LO9, I have version 62.0.0.19.93 for Instagram, and version 8.4.70.666 of Spotify.
