Instagram Introduces New Question Sticker to Instagram Stories

Instagram Stories just got way more interactive with the new question sticker!

While we first got wind of the feature last week, according to an announcement from Instagram, question stickers are officially being rolled out on both iOS and Android in version 52 of the app.

Unlike poll stickers and emoji sliders, both of which allow users to “vote” on questions that you submit, when you add a question sticker to your Instagram story, others users submit questions for you to answer. So basically, it puts your followers in the driving seat! 

Ready to learn all there is to know about Instagram’s new question sticker? Here we go:

How to Use Instagram’s New Question Sticker

Adding a question sticker to your Instagram story is just like adding any other kind of interactive sticker, it just involves a few more steps.

Start by tapping the sticker button after uploading a photo or video to Instagram Stories.

Select the new question sticker and then type out your prompt. For example, you could write, “waiting for the bus… ask me questions!” Once you’ve written your prompt, place it wherever you’d like and share it to your story.

When someone views your story, they can respond by tapping the sticker and then typing a question to ask you (they can actually submit a question as many times as they want, right from the sticker).

To view the questions people submitted, simply open your story and swipe up.

You can also respond to people’s questions by tapping a question, typing out your response, and sharing it as a new story. Just keep in mind that when you share someone’s question, their photo and username will not be shown.

And that’s it!

Along with polling stickers and the new emoji slider, questions stickers give you another easy way to interact with your followers — and it’s perfect for businesses!
