How to fix Facebook Messenger story stuck on sending?
There are several possible causes why your Facebook Messenger stories are stuck on sending. Before using several troubleshooting techniques to fix the issue, you must first get to know the reasons behind the problem.
We have identified five primary reasons causing this error:
Bigger file size
Unstable or no internet access
Outdated Facebook Messenger
There are solutions to each of these issues in the section below; have a look at them and decide which one applies to you.
Remove and repost the story
Let’s assume that your story is still stuck on sending, even after a few minutes, due to a larger file size. Now what?
We understand that while images may post quickly at times, video clips may take longer. But how long should you wait, and how long is too long?
As you can see, even if the clip is excessively long, it shouldn’t take more than a few minutes. It’s time to get into action if you’ve been unable to upload your story.
Immediately remove the story and post it again. Hopefully, it will fix the problem.
Is your internet stable?
The most frequent cause of the majority of your app’s functionalities not working is your inconsistent internet connection. How do you think Facebook Messenger will work if your internet is unstable or turned off?
We know many of you here might assume it to be a silly cause, yet you can’t ignore it. Check your Wi-Fi or mobile data speed and make sure you have a steady internet connection.
Update the application
How long has it been since you updated the Facebook Messenger app in Google Play or the App Store? We think it was too long, or maybe you simply can’t recall.
