Cannot share Spotify playlist on Instagram Stories

Regular

Hi,

 

The share on Instagram Stories option works fine when I want to publish just one song but it doesn't work at all if I want to share a playlist. I get an error message telling me Spotify couldn't share my playlist right now and to try it later. I got this same message for a couple of days now. 

 

Thanks in advance!

iOS 11.4

Hi there!

I know it sounds simple, but it's often overlooked. Could you try restarting your device? If that doesn't help, try a quick clean reinstall of the app. Just follow these steps. I'd also recommend to update to iOS 11.4.1 as it is the latest official version for now 🙂

If you're still having trouble, could you let me know the exact version of Spotify and the exact version of the operating system you're running?

I'll see what I can suggest next!

Hi Loxer,

 

Thanks for your quick reply. As you suggested I restarted my device, updated to iOS 11.4.1 and did the reinstall of the app but I still got the same error message when sharing a playlist to Instgram Stories: “Oops. Sorry we couldn’t share to Instagram Stories, try again later”.

 

I am using Spotify 8.4.6 9 on an iPhone 8 Plus iOS 11.4.1

 

Thanks!

Hi,

 

It's been a month and I still have the same issue. I am using the latest versions of both Spotify (8.4.72) and Instagram (65.0).

 

Does anyone have a solution?

 

Thank you in advance!

I have a theory that you can’t share albums with custom artwork- does yours have custom artwork?

Hi,

 

I think it's because you're on offline mode? Mine worked after removing offline mode on the spotify app.

 

Hope this helps 🙂

Same thing is happening for me. I have removed and reinstalled Instagram and Spotify. I cannot share any song to Instagram stories, whether less well-known are very popular. Current iPhone XS and iPhone iOS.
