Last updated 2022-02-17 ·Reference W-7528463 ·Reported By 3 users


Instagram stories are unable to Publish using the Social Studio mobile app for Android ONLY.

- Once the story is published from Social Studio desktop, user receives notification on mobile app which prompts Instagram to open from the Social Studio app, but an error pops-up: “Unable to launch Instagram for this content”.

- As a result, customer can not schedule stories from Social Studio.

- This error was happening for images as well until yesterday but seems to be fixed now.

- Errors don’t happen for iOS.
