Instagram has a new questions feature for Story users

"Along with the polling sticker and emoji slider, the questions sticker gives you another easy way to get closer with all of your friends on Instagram", the firm said.

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

Another Instagram update dropped while we were sleeping-and it is a new interactive sticker for your Instagram Stories called "Questions". Users can then type in their prompt and add the sticker to the photo or video being posted to their story. Type out your prompt then place it wherever you'd like and share it to your story. Users can also respond as many times as they want to a given question. Users can then tap the response to add their own answer, which can be posted as a new story. You'll be able to tap a response from someone to share it and answer the question in your story, but when you do that, keep in mind that their photo and username will not be shown. Just swipe up to show your options and click on the Questions sticker.

Instagram has been adding new features left and right to entice users, especially those who are still avid Snapchat users. 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.

Followers will see your poll when they view your story, and can cast their own vote to reveal which choice is in the lead. Highlights include its new Lite and IGTV apps, though there are several Instagram app tweaks sprinkled all throughout.
