Instagram seems to be testing a new feature in Stories that allows users to post open-ended questions and receive answers from their followers.
Instagram is on fire, that’s for sure. After announcing and rolling out IGTV, Instagram Lite and several other new features including 4-way video chats and Music Stickers, it seems Instagram is at it again. Reports from users across the globe show that the app is testing a new feature within Stories that allows users to ask open-ended questions to their followers and receive answers from them.
Instagram has already been very successful with its polls and emoji sliders stickers in Stories. Polls let users ask their followers multiple-choice questions, while Emoji sliders can gauge their opinions.
This time it seems Instagram is looking to complete its questioning panoply by letting users ask open-ended questions. The feature, which looks like a “Sticker” comes with an input text box that makes it easy for followers to reply.
There is very little information about this new feature. For example, we don’t know if the answers are sent via DM or within the Story itself. Nor do we know if the user receives details on who posted each answer.
Instagram is yet to comment on the reports. Have you seen the feature?
