As of now, the only way to rectify this issue is to get yourself enrolled as a beta tester as the beta build of this app is free from the underlying issue. So refer to the below steps and get this task done right away.

NOTE: In the below instructions, I have first listed the steps to uninstall the app and then download its beta build. You could directly download the beta build as well [without uninstalling the app], but in such cases, there might be a delay before you receive the beta update.

  1. To begin with, head over to Settings > Apps > See All Apps.
  2. Then select BeReal from the list and hit Uninstall > OK.BeReal Add Friends option not working
