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 folks,

 

Thanks for raising this issue with us. 

 

First, please could you confirm if you're trying to share music to your Instagram stories but are redirected to sign in to Instagram instead? This thread concerns this specific issue.

 

If so, could you make sure that you have reinstalled both Spotify and Instagram, and that when you are trying to share to your Instagram Stories you are logged into both your Spotify and Instagram accounts?

 

If that doesn't work for you, please could you leave the following information:

  • Device and OS
  • Spotify version
  • Instagram version?

 

Thanks!

Re: I can’t get song share via Instagram stories to work

I have exactly the same problem on iPhone XS! Everything is up do date, I’m not sure why Instagram asks me to sign in when I try to share from Spotify. Once I do sign in, it just brings me to the main Instagram page and the song isn’t shared.

This is what’s happening to me. I click share > instagram stories. Where it would normally send it to the story, it redirects to instagram’s login screen. And I am logged in to both apps.

 

I’m on an iPhone XS Max running:

iOS 12.0.1

Spotify 8.4.75

Instagram 67.0

 

Someone suggested Instagram changed up their API, but I’m not sure about this. I’m hardly a software developer. I reported this to Instagram as well.
