Instagram Stories now includes a question sticker so nosy friends can quiz you on your posts.

The new feature is a strong step towards increasing engagement in Instagram stories, and lets users add a question to their stories, to which their followers can respond directly through the sticker itself.

It is an update of the interactive poll sticker introduced in October previous year that let users ask a question and present two options atop a photo or video.

"Add a question sticker to your story by selecting it from the sticker tray after taking a photo or video", the company wrote in a blog post.


If you're on auto-app update then you're good and it's already available when you open Instagram, but if you're not, go ahead and take a few minutes to manually click update. Just swipe up to show your options and click on the Questions sticker.

'Type out your prompt then place it wherever you'd like and share it to your story'. When friends see the sticker, they can tap it to reply - and they can reply as many times as they want, right from the sticker.

Instagram added a new "questions" sticker feature to the app. Users can ask their followers questions and followers can reply with any answer. A text box appears below the user-submitted question, where other users that are viewing the Instagram story can initiate a conversation with the person posting the story. You can find all of their questions by checking out your viewers' list, very similar to how you view results to your IG polls.
