An application error Instagram keeps the automatic playback of the sound of the stories (stories) when the user has activated the silent mode of the iPhonea bug introduced by the latest update to the social network.
The appearance of this problem dates back to September 7, with the most recent update of the social network’s iOS app, as those affected have been leaving evidence on other platforms such as Twitter.
According to them, since then they are unable to turn off the sound of their Instagram stories with the silent mode of their iPhone activated. This iOS function allows, thanks to a switch located on the side, to immediately activate or deactivate the sound of the device.
A spokesperson for the parent company of the social network, Meta Platforms, has acknowledged to the US media Newsweek that it is an “error” that affects only “some iOS users”.
This same representative of the company has assured that Meta is already working on solving the problem “as soon as possible”. Until then, affected iPhone users will be able to mute Stories manually, either from one of the device’s side volume buttons or from the device’s Control Center.
