Of course this had to happen on a Monday.

Instagram users were unable to upload new photos and videos to their Stories for several hours on Monday and it definitely wasn’t OK.

Instagram confirmed the issue in a tweet Monday, saying that a “bug” is “preventing some people from uploading to Instagram.”

The issue, which cropped up for both iOS and Android users, appeared to primarily affect uploads to Stories, though users were also having issues uploading videos to their main feed. Instagram didn’t initially elaborate on the source of the issue or when a fix would be in place, but the issue appears to have coincided with an app update also released Monday.

Meanwhile, Instagram users were of course not pleased with Instagram’s technical issues.

The strong reaction shouldn’t be surprising, though, given the sheer dominance of Instagram Stories, which has 200 million monthly active users, according to the company.
