2. Ensure that the app is updated– If you are using an old version of the app, it is possible that music is not supported, or maybe a bug is hindering Instagram Music from working.

It is advisable to keep the automatic updates turned on for Instagram or any other apps so that they get updated when a new version is available. If you have not done it already, you can update manually as well. Do the following to update the app:

  •  Go to Google Play Store for Android or Apple App Store for iPhone
  • Search for Instagram
  • Click on Update if you see the option
  • However, if you see only the Open option, it means the app is updated and no new update is available.

3. Log out of Instagram– This tip may sound easy and too simple to be true, which it is but in many cases doing this resolved the issue at hand. You just need to log out and sign back in again to get your music feature restored.
