In that case, the only thing you can do is, well, nothing. Hold on for them to wrap whatever they are doing up.

Internet instability can happen once in a while. Sometimes, the internet speed can be rapid and amazing, other times, not so rapid and not so amazing. This is normal. If you are certain that Instagram’s story feature is functioning for others except you, then it can be the Internet speed preventing your story from being shared. What can be done to rectify this is to de-activate Wi-Fi or your normal Internet connection, hold on for at least 10 seconds and re-activate it. If you are connected to a coffee shop’s Wi-Fi network, make sure you use your own Internet, since these kinds have a reputation of being too slow.

3. Restart Your Instagram App
