It can be a disappointment when the new Instagram features are not showing up on your app. You’re not the only one who noticed the missing Instagram features, but I’ve got a few Instagram tips that might help you receive them quickly.
Why you’re Missing New Instagram Features?
If you are one of those users who still do not have some Instagram features, below are the reasons why:
- First off, it could only be because your app isn’t entirely up-to-date. If your Instagram isn’t set to “update automatically,” there’s a chance you’re still using the old version of Instagram.
- It might be because of a Technical glitch. If it is the reason uninstall your app and delete its apk and other files from your phone file manager.
- Your account is a new one. New accounts report to be missing new Instagram feature more often. Wait for a week and check for the features once again.
How to get the new Instagram features?
There are a few methods you can try to get the missing Instagram features.
Here’s what you can do:
1- Update your Instagram app
- Go to app store (for iOS) or play store (for Android)
- Find Instagram and check for updates
- If there was a new version available, download and install it.
- Check if the issue is fixed.
2- Log out/into your Instagram account
Sometimes logging out of your Instagram account and logging back in again will solve the problems. It’s like you are restarting your Instagram.
3- Reinstall the Instagram app on your device
If you still facing the issue, try this: delete your entire Instagram app and install it again.
- Go to your home page, find Instagram and uninstall it
- go to play store or app store and download and install Instagram again
- log in to your account and check if you got the new features.
4- Wait for it…!
If it doesn’t work after all these methods, then you just need to wait.
It usually takes some time for Instagram to roll out new features around the world. It’s common for big platforms to release new features gradually. The new feature might not be available in your country yet, or it might not be available on your Instagram account yet.
Alternatively, maybe one of your accounts already has the new features while your other accounts might not have it yet, which seems somehow weird. Shouldn’t we have the same feature on both of our Instagram accounts? Well, it looks like Instagram considers our accounts as separate accounts.
5- Contact Instagram
If it has been a long time since you’ve been waiting for the new Instagram features, contact the company and inform them of your situation.
How to contact Instagram?
- Open your Instagram app and go to your settings
- Scroll down to the bottom and select “Report a problem.”
- Write your query and click send.
- Wait for a few days, and Instagram will answer you as soon as they get your report.
