      Our thanks to the creators that provided feedback, we have investigated and fixed a bug that shows the error message “Unable to use this effect on your device” on both iOS and Android, when loading an effect.​
      ​ ​ ​ ​
      A fix is available on Instagram (v194.0+), Facebook (v.325+), Spark AR Player (v117.0) and Spark AR Studio v117.0. ​

      Please update to the latest app versions, and apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.
