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.

Hey there everyone,


Thanks for posting regarding this here in the Community!


Keep in mind that we're always testing things in order to improve Spotify. If you're missing the option to share to your Instagram stories, you can find more info here


We'd also suggest making sure to always keep both apps updated so you won't miss the latest features and improvements.


Further, we realize this thread is gone a bit off topic with lots of questions in one place. It’s for this reason we’re going to lock the thread.


Hope this helps clarify things! Don't hesitate to give us a shout if there's anything else we can help with.

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


We'd recommend reinstalling the app by following the steps at 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....

I reinstall both apps and still don't seeing the option... 



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


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.

Hey @Richxdavies.


Thanks for your patience.


We're always testing things in order to improve Spotify. There's more info on this here.
