How to fix Instagram sound not working on Mobile 

1.Check Volume 

The initial step is to check if your device’s volume has been disabled or not. If it’s not, you can always re-confirm it. If. you’re someone like me who is into iOS and you’ve put your device into silent mode, you need to disable that in order to get the sound problem fixed on your iOS device. Check if your smartphone is connected to any external audio source i.e, Speakers, earphones, and headphones; and re-confirm the volume levels too.

2.Update and Restart the App

If you are still facing this sound problem on your phone then there could be a possibility that developers of Instagram had already fixed this bug for the other users. For this, you need to visit the Play Store or App Store and head towards ‘Instagram’ and update your Instagram app on your device and restart the application to check whether the problem remains to persist for you or not.

3.Restart Phone

If you are still facing this issue even after checking the volume and updating your app then the other step is restarting your device which will clear every background running an application that is causing these no sound issues.
