UPDATE: This buttons appearing in the Stories highlights and are not related to ads in the end.
Just got a push notification from my Instagram Alpha v126.96.36.199.40. It opened a story with two buttons "edit" and "publish" from @summerstarts☀️now
Pressing "edit" crashed the app ☠️
It looks like a Story ads editor was pushed to the wrong user. Did anyone see this before?
Instagram already has a possibility to create story ads via Facebook Ad Manager but I am not sure if there was an in-app functionality for that. Additionally, action buttons don't have any styling which makes them look like an experimental feature.
The same version also has a bug with scrolling in chats. The app crashes after scrolling the chat history in any chat all the time (Screenshot).
