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!

Tried it allowed me to do it once but once I try again to make sure it only takes to the ig screen to take a picture or record instead of the Spotify song

This is not a issue. Spotify folks are deliberately leaving out this feature in Android app. Reinstalling apps won't do any good. This feature works fine on my iPad. When are you going to add this in Android app? We are also paying customers.

How I handle the problem:

1) Create a new dummy instagram account

2) Close both Instagram and Spotify

3) Open Instagram, log in to the new account, then close Instagram.

4) Open Spotify

5) Open Instagram (and if you are not automatically logged in to the new account, log in to the new account)

6) Switch back to Spotify and voila! The "Instagram Stories" option should be available under thr "share" option. 

7) Now you should switch back you your main Instagram account WITHOUT closing Spotify. 

 

After these all steps, "Instagram Stories" option will not disappear as long as you don't close Spotify. In case it disappears, you should start over the procedure from step 2.

 

Hope this helps.

Hi Peter,

 

It's just puzzling how the option was available a few minutes ago, and I have been posting/sharing Spotify on my Instagram stories in the past but am now unable to, because the "Instagram Stories" option is no longer available when sharing a song directly from Spotify. I have checked both apps and they are both updated. Is this an Android issue?
