Same problem here.

Both apps are up to date; uninstalled and re-installed.


Android version: 8.0.0

Phone Model: SM-G955FD (Galaxy S8+)

Baseband version: G955FXXU4CRI1


Spotify version: armV7 (Premium)

Instagram version: 100 (Beta tester)


By clicking on "Share > More" option, Spotify opens the phone's native share window and only the "Direct" option is avaliable for Instagram.

My Question or Issue

 I’m trying to share a song via Instagram stories but every time I’m automatically redirected to the login screen instead of the Instagram story page 

Recently my Spotify account will not let me share songs to my instagram story. Each time it redirects me to the Instagram log in page, and once I enter the correct login information it just opens my Instagram profile with no option to share anything. It does this every time I try to share share a song and I’ve redownloaded both Instagram and Spotify apps, please help I’ve never had this problem before! 


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?



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.

Same issue, cannot share from Spotify to Instagram Story, tried reinstalling but didn't work. Attempted from iPhone 5s on IOS 12.

I’ve tried everything you have recommended and still no joy. I’m using an iPhone 7 running IOS 12.0.1

I tried everything still i cant use share on instagram stories. I only see share with instagram direct.


  • Device and OS : ASUS Zenfone3 (ZE552KL) , Android 8.0.0
  • Spotify version : armV7
  • Instagram version:

Same happening for me.

On an iPhone XS. Running iOS 12.1.

Uninstalled and reinstalled both apps twice with latest versions available.

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.

Exactly the same!

iPhone XS - iOS 12.0.1

Spotify - Version 8.4.75

Instagram - Version 67.0

Same here! iPhone 6 iOS 12.0.1
