Instagram has been adding new features left and right to entice users, especially those who are still avid Snapchat users. Highlights include its new Lite and IGTV apps, though there are several Instagram app tweaks sprinkled all throughout. The new option is called " questions stickers" and not only enables Instagram users to put questions and their answers in their Stories but also reshare them in a new Instagram story. With these, your followers' answers can be as long-winded as they want them to be.

The feature doesn't seem to have rolled out to everyone yet.

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.

Your friends and followers can tap reply when they see your story and can reply as many times as they want through that sticker.

Announced in a blog post, Instagram shared that the question sticker expands on the existing polling sticker and emoji slider to "get closer with all of your friends on Instagram".

Police said there were no indications that Crenshaw was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the incident. Coronado told investigators he stopped to ask Crenshaw for directions before he jumped up and stabbed him.


You can then tap on the question to create a new story post and although you know who asked it the username will not appear in the post.

Instagram's update is rolling out to iOS and Android users now.

The new sticker means friends can submit questions for you to answer - but only you can see who asked what.

The Questions sticker is as easy as using the other stickers like Poll, GIFs and so on. Just swipe up to show your options and click on the Questions sticker.
