TechHow ToHow To Fix "This Instagram Song Is Currently Unavailable" Issue

You might be on Instagram and trying to add a certain song or use a song that someone else has used for one of your stories. But you are unable to do it as it is saying that the song is currently unavailable. Well, you can choose to find another song, but what if you really liked the song and it fits perfectly for your shorts or stories? Giving up on that feels bad, and we get that. So here are a couple of things that you can do to fix the problem.

Why Is the Song Unavailable to You?

Before we start off to finding the solutions, let’s first understand the causes behind it. There are two main reasons why the song is currently unavailable. Firstly, there might be a bug or a glitch in the Instagram app. So we can show you how to force-update it and fix any bugs or glitches. Secondly, it might be because of the region that you’re in, so certain copyrights limit Instagram’s ability to use songs in certain countries or regions, and they are just not available anymore in other countries or regions.

Regardless, there is a way to work around that as well. So let’s explore that in the next section.

Step 1: The very first thing you have to do is to hop onto your settings and scroll down until you get to General.

Step 2: Tap on General.

Step 3: Towards the bottom, you should be able to see Languages and Region. Click on that.

Step 4: After that, you can see the Region which you can change to a different country.

Step 5: Restart your phone and then try to use that song. And since it is a different country, you could switch it to the United States, France, Brazil or whatever you like. You could change it to a different region and restart Instagram.

Now check if, after restarting Instagram, that song is available or not now that you are in a different region. However, if it’s still not working, then potentially, there is a bug in the specific Instagram app itself.

How To Fix a Bug in the Instagram App?

Step 1) Go to Settings and click on iPhone Storage. This will load up all the apps that you have on your iPhone.

Step 2) Scroll down until you find Instagram there and click on it.

Step 3) Furthermore, click on the Offload app button and re-install Instagram. This refreshes all the core app files and gets rid of any bugs or glitches in them. Additionally, it forcefully updates it.

Thus, if those songs are potentially available on the update, you will be able to use them on your Instagram. So open up Instagram and try to load up those songs, and if they are still not loading, then maybe they are just not available on the app. You now have to wait until Instagram makes them available in your specific area or you.
