Unable to Share Songs to Instagram Story


Unable to Share Songs to Instagram Story

Samsung Galaxy S22

Operating System

Spotify Version

My Question or Issue

Whenever I try to share a song from the Spotify app to Instagram for a story, Spotify brings me to a screen where I can see the track title, artist, art, etc. However, when I tap the Instagram story icon to share, it just reloads and takes me back to the same screen; it also says "Unsupported Browser" when I tap More.


Both applications have all permissions allowed and are up-to-date as of 11/19/2022.

Hey folks,


Thanks for posting and the Community and for all the info shared.


In this case, to continue investigating this further, we'll need the following info, so we can further this info to the right team:

  • Make/model and OS of the affected device
  • Spotify version and Instagram version you have running
  • All the troubleshooting you've tried

Share To Stories crashes

Hi folks,


Sorry to hear that this started happening to you.


Can you let us know if this started after an app or OS update? Let us know exactly what happens when you try to share a song to your IG story - does the Spotify app freeze or does Instagram freeze. Does the story become available at all?


It would also be helpful to know your:

- Device model and OS version

- Spotify version


Looking forward to your replies.

Spotify doesn't crash, only IG crashes. When i click the "stories" button in Spotify it opens IG story page for a second then it crashes. But in the end it doesn't add the story at all

It's Instagram that crashes not Spotify. So it could be an IG problem. But it only started doing this recently.

- No app update 

- No OS update as far as I know (it sometimes gives me the option to update OS in the middle of the night in which case I wouldn't know it did) 

- Spotify doesn't crash 

- IG doesn't crash per se - if IG was not already open, the "share to" would open up a new instance of IG so it becomes a draft Story - in this case, it tries to start a draft Story, fails, reverts back Spotify

Same issue with Galaxy Note 20 5G and Galaxy A53 5G

Has been doing it for the last few days out of the blue. It can't post story to Instagram, noting updated or changed and on various phones as you can see others with issue. I sometimes get a white box pop up saying instagram keeps stopping.

Temporary solution for y'all 

Downgrade instagram to version It still works with that.

Hey Alex,

Ive been experiencing the same problem as everyone here for the past couple days and I just found this today. this is what I got going on...

1. I choose Share to Instagram stories, switches to Instagram stories for a second and then crashes and goes back to the sharing screen on Spotify. I am able to open up Instagram through my home screen. No apps freeze.

2. Instagram updated 2 days ago and Spotify was 5 days ago. I noticed the problem either Saturday or Monday, can't remember exactly.

3. I'm running android 12 on my pixel 4.

Instagram version-

Hi there,


Currently experiencing the same as other users have reported. When I go to share a song to my IG story, Instagram opens momentarily at the draft story screen before crashing and redirecting me to the Spotify share screen. Multiple attempts result in a notification that "This app is not responding" (IG). Instagram opens fine on its own otherwise. The story does not become available at all.


It was working fine for me on Aug 3, and the issue started happening on Aug 4. I don't believe there were any app updates but I could be mistaken.
