Test Report 📑

I found a rare bug which I would like to report to Instagram dev. For those who interested - please check how to fill a proper bug report 📲

Environment:

Google Pixel XL2, Android 8.1, Fast Wi-Fi network.

Application:

Instagram Alpha 56.0.0.0.29

Steps to reproduce:

  • Open stories > take a picture
  • Tap on the stickers button > select GIF option
  • Type "developers" in the search box

Actual result:

App crashes with

FATAL EXCEPTION: main

AndroidRuntime: java.lang.NullPointerException: Attempt to invoke interface method 'java.util.Iterator java.util.List.iterator()' on a null object reference

Looks like the app receives a rare (unique) response from the gif provider which was not handled properly by the app.

Expected result:

The list of GIFs for "developers" query is shown. The app should have a default fallback in the API handler for such cases.


Please see screenshots and video attached.

Did anybody find any other search queries which crashed the app?
