How to Unmute Someone on Instagram

If you’ve muted someone and now want to bring their stories and posts back to your News Feed, it’s easy to unmute someone on Instagram. Here’s how to do it on your iPhone or Android phone.

When you mute or unmute a person, Instagram does not notify the user. Later, if you want to deactivate someone again, you can do so easily.

To note: At the time of writing in February 2022, you cannot unmute someone from Instagram’s desktop website.
