Instagram Beta & Alpha for Android Community Report 📲 Google Pixel XL 2, Android 8.1.0

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 v47.0.0.0.40. 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).

  • Instagram is a platform, where you can share your life with the ones you love and value the most. It is used by more than 1 billion people around the world, and the community grows rapidly.
