Cannot press the blue arrow to proceed with posting on Android

I have the same issue since yesterday, Just upload the post from story option and it should work.


Straycat_Drought

this worked for me, thank you. I just swiped left to the story option then slid the bottom slider from "story" to "post" and for some reason accessing the interface from that direction let me hit the blue arrow (but then insta auto-compressed my video poorly and it looks terrible! so I've got more bugs to work through but at least I know how to get around this particular issue)


Psychological-Poet54

Sorry I have no clue what you guys are talking about how did you go from the story to the actual post section. When I tap on story ( to upload a story ) there's no option to go from that to post unless I exit the story and go to the post section.


PartehBear

Post the story, wait for it to upload, click the three dot settings icon at the bottom, then click Share as Post.


j-raine

Can you post multiple as a story?


impwure

u explained this so well and it worked 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 thank u sm


fydbac

Thank you, that worked for me as well! Took forever to find the solution. Thanks!

atticpiper

Thank you!!!


JerseyTrousers

Omigosh, THANK YOU. This was driving me bonkers, and the only solution I could find was "check the size of your video, empty the cache, etc"


shafinshaikh25

Oh dude, thank you so much. Was irritated by this problem lol.


MathematicianFew8831

Thank you!! I haven't been able to post these past few weeks, you're awesome!


devsmess

I'm having the same problem and have no solutions. I've restarted my phone (Samsung Galaxy s21 Ultra), uninstalled and reinstalled IG, tried to use a different picture, checked my internet, deleted my profile photo then tried to upload one... nothing. It won't let me change my profile photo, and the desktop version won't let me crop it. This is so frustrating. I hope there is some resolution.


Luka4547

Access instagram from google chrome on your phone


Oraranozawa

That still doesn't let me upload invidual videos


NobodyThin2496

So I can make a post, but for some reason I just can't upload a pfp or rather I can't change it at all, on my main personal and alt account..


Luka4547

Same, I changed it by going to instagram from chrome app


mousedroidz21

having the same problem, I reinstalled and restarted my phone and even that didn't fix it. I'm on a oneplus 6


matt_9994

Same for me


Playful-Parsley1172

I'm on a op 6 and can't post


dam76

I'm on a OP6 and I can post if I start from the "home" tab of the app. If I start from the "profile" tab I get the blue arrow issue.


barmdemenspoder2

LG G8X here, I love you, I haven't been able to post for a few weeks and all I had to do was try it from "home" 😐


Lovecatx

This just happened to me. I posted one post, it worked fine. Then I tried to post a second post to my art account and I could select and edit the picture but then the wee blue arrow wouldn't work. I tried saving as a draft and reposting but I couldn't find my drafts, so I closed and opened the application and that still didn't work. Then I restarted my phone and, yet again, it wouldn't work. I have a Huawei P Smart 2020.


Booootybutttcheeeks

Fucking same problem and I have no idea


BisquickPancakeMix

I have the same problem! I have a Samsung galaxy s10e and i cant press the blue arrow to post to my art account. I tried restarting my phone and clearing the apps cache too. Nothing is working??


pacinoforever

Try uploading a post through the option in your story rather than from your profile page option.


The_R6ER

this actually worked thanks man


EDP4206987

this \^


j-raine

Is it possible to post multiple photos in one story


pacinoforever

Yes. When you make a story, and swipe up for gifs, time and location options, there's a rectangular icon with a + sign. That's for selecting multiple photos from the gallery in one story.


j-raine

For me it just puts them all in seperate stories


pacinoforever

I'm assuming you selected multiple pics from your gallery option in the bottom left corner that you get before uploading a story. Just select a random photo and then swipe up, where you have the location options and all. Or try this method given in the link. [Instagram ](https://youtu.be/3VrYDlqgdgI)


CrayJstan

YES! And this isn't the first time it's happened. Idk what to do about it (I have a Google Pixel 4a)


CraftyBitch74

Same here!! Omg! Ive have done everything as well...i have a SamsungA71! As anyone ever resolved this issue??


CraftyBitch74

So i uploaded my pic through story option, but it doesnt post in my gallery. I need to post pics for my side business, so this doesnt work for me!! 😭😭


umamiSugarMommy

I just posted on this thread the solution


shortyeepo

if closing the app and/or restarting your phone doesn't work, I found a small fix, when you are in the gallery part just press the arrow next to the gallery and choose "other...". It'll take you to your most recent image files and you can pick whatever you want to post or change your pfp to. hope this helps someone!


PietroSal

Thanks it works!


Booutz

thanks for the tip, this worked perfectly for the missus too. galaxy s21 plus


mgnumes

\^\^\^THIS WORKED Thank you!


LASERBE4MS

Worked!! Thanks captain.


yourlordandking

It works for one image but not for several images ( carousel)


BegonexXxThot

I think I found a solution 1. Exit out the app 2. Go to the app store and search up Instagram 3. Open Instagram from there and it should be working


curiositykilcat

Tried that no luck


Income-Jealous

Solved it for me, thank you! ... Hope they fix this bug soon!


Uncle_Wayne

thanks worked for me


PietroSal

Same on Samsung s8


BenKing03

Also on S10, won't let me change my profile picture or post anything


GibsonsDogrunner

Same here. I have two different Samsung phones. It happens on both. I reinstalled IG and restarted phone. I could post 1 photo, but since then no matter what i do, nothing helps. Frustrating


umamiSugarMommy

I posted this before. THEY MOVED IT TO THE OTHER SCREEN. You now have to go to the "home" screen where the upper right icons are + ❤️ ⚡ and post from there. IT'S RIDICULOUS and now when uploading drafts, after one it *used* to go back to the next picture in order and now it doesn't. (This is important for me for what I do)


yourlordandking

Thanks it works from home


dreadielocs420

Ugh THANK YOU.


umamiSugarMommy

NP


Adorable-Bonus-6250

omg, thank you for the tip it worked !! I was going crazy and got so frustrated and worried that I'm not able to post on my business account! thanks again!


umamiSugarMommy

No problem!


Realistic_Clothes_71

yeah this works! how weird


Realistic_Clothes_71

yeah this works! how weird


FlamingMoe24

Omg tysm nothing was working but it works now :)


June-Belle

Wait I didn't quite get it, I go that page where they say profile editing and all, from there?


_GameGator_

Same


lazurro

Cant change my PFP. Blue arrow not working aswell :(


ShellyBee74

I'm having this issue today. If I just select one photo it proceeds as normal....but if I select multiple photos I can't get past the blue arrow.


Oraranozawa

You press the white button on the multiple photos then back out and can upload, same for videos, but I can't upload videos less than a minute without doing that and it won't work because I'd need unnecessary videos or unrelated ones entirely to the topic I cover to post what I actually want to post.


yang_negro

Same


yourlordandking

I have the same problem, it's crazy that instagram didn't fix this bug. I'm on samsung note 10+


Rain21523

this seems to be a fairly common issue within the last few days, hopefully it gets solved soon. it's quite annoying tbh.


GetRazed

Same problem


dreadielocs420

Yup same as all of you, came here to see... smh hope it gets fixed, bc I have content to post


dam76

I can post if I start from the "home" tab of the app. If I start from the "profile" tab I get the blue arrow issue.


A-rip-threw-time

I Got The Same Glitch !


Common-Cardiologist4

Same issue! I'm on a OnePlus Nord


pphimm01

Ugh I'm having the same issue! I followed everyone's suggestions in the thread and it's not working for me. I'm using a Samsung note 10+


Dry_Landscape5178

I have the same problem on my Samsung Note 20 Ultra. The only thing that seems to helps for me is clearing the app data from the settings on the phone. (This will log you out fron all accounts on intagram)


Psychological-Poet54

I fixed it 😭. Basically you have to upload from the home tab like when you first open the app then click on the square with the plus icon. You should find the square in the top right corner of the app when you first open it up. 😌👍


FeedtheRancor

This worked for me since the other story to post didn't.


stripedcomfysocks

Having the same issue but only if I'm trying to post more than one photo at once...


Ohay84

What works for me is on the filter page tap on one of the images like you're applying a filter to just one image, and then back out. Should be able to post now


jerrykerry245

I'm having an issue I want to post a videos on Instagram but it won't let me. I press the blue arrow and it doesn't let me move on to the next step (you know, when you put the the caption and posting it). I cleared my Instagram cache, I uninstalled it, I logged out of all of my Instagram accounts and it still doesn't let me post videos. I don't know if anybody knows what I'm talking about but I can't post videos anymore because the blue arrow won't let me. I can pictures/photos and stuff but just not videos...


jerrykerry245

Hey guys I'm having a Instagram issue. When I post a photo on Instagram it let's me. But when I want to post a video on Instagram, it doesn't let me. When I press the blue arrow it won't let me do the caption and posting stuff if ykyk. He works for pictures and photos but it doesn't let me post videos. I don't know if I'm blocked but Instagram has not told me.

theenderkitty1

Its now happening to me, day 3


ReversalRain

I have the same problem too


PAnimator787

I am having the same issue just now and I found a weird fix. When you select all of the photos you want to upload, click on any images where you will see the filter/edit settings. Add in a filter if you want, or not edit anything, click on the blue checkmark. Then click on the blue arrow again. That's what worked for me, just did it right now. I was finally able to upload into Instagram. It's a weird fix but it worked out for me. I am using a Samsung Note 20 Ultra with the S-Pen, Snapdragon version. It must be a weird bug. Edit: Minor spelling errors fixes.


jerrykerry245

Yes but I'm talking about the videos. Upload a video for my gallery on Instagram I pressed the blue arrow the second time and it doesn't let me upload it I don't know why


PAnimator787

Hmm I'm not sure. Hopefully the bug works out soon. For me it looks like I press the blue arrow and it uploads short videos fine for me on Instagram, lasts a few seconds.


CallieBear79

Weird fix, indeed, but it worked! Thanks for posting this advice 💯💯


Ecstatic-Performer

Here's a fix for now, if you're using android click go into your gallery select the picture you want to upload to feed hold on the picture and click share select share to Instagram news feed and that will by pass the issue


LostErrorCode404

Same issue here.


CallieBear79

Same. F*ing annoying. No response at all when I click arrow.


kaootilism

when posting multiple photos - putting a filter on only one photo and removing it fixed the problem for me
