During the last days, the regulars of the Instagram app for Android have reported problems of forced closures ( Instagram stopped ). A failure that prevents the use of the application since it freezes to subsequently close unexpectedly. The company not only has knowledge of this problem, but it already offers an apparently solution .
In Android , one of the errors with which its users can be found are the forced closures of apps . A software failure – either by the system itself or the app in question – that blocks the application we are using in an unexpected way and launches a popup window with the message of this failure. Well, that’s precisely the forced closures problem that have experienced some users with the Instagram app for Android during the last days.
This was reported by those affected in both forums and social networks, a failure that has not overlooked the company. In principle, it is an error that some Android devices experience randomly, although with special virulence in Samsung, Huawei, Motorola or Xiaomi devices. Users have reported that Instagram automatically stops when consulting your Profiles , notifications or even the stories .
At first, the advice offered by Instagram for those affected was the uninstall the application for later installation later. Also the option of clear Instagram cache .
However, today we can read in the Official Instagram profile on Twitter that the company has already taken action on the matter. We consider that, after studying the problem of forced closures with the Instagram app , the firm has detected the origin of the fault and has solved it by launching an update.
Yesterday, there was an issue causing the Instagram app to crash on Android devices. We’re sorry, and things are resolved! If you’re still experiencing problems, try reinstalling or updating your app.
