Instagram Fixing Story Replay Bug
Some users’ Instagram Tales appear to be broken, and they must go through all of someone else’s stories before seeing fresh ones. Since yesterday, numerous Instagram users have been afflicted by the problem, with several Reddit users reporting the same.
In an email to The Verge, Meta spokesperson Christine Pai said the firm is “aware that some users are having problems accessing Instagram Stories.” Pai apologized for the disruption and stated that Instagram is trying to bring everything back to normal as fast as possible. However, the biggest issue appears to be that while viewing someone’s story, Instagram does not remember where you left off.
If one of your friends has five stories and you view four of them before swiping, you should see his fifth story the next time you press on his symbol. Instead, when users seek to watch the story, Instagram forces them to return to the four they’ve previously seen. When someone adds a new account to your feed, the problem also emerges. The exact number of people that are affected is presently unknown. Many people on Twitter say they have to go back to stories, but Instagram isn’t as popular as you might think if a critical feature isn’t functioning for everyone.
