There have been so many new features in Instagram lately that it becomes difficult to keep track of them. Over the past few weeks, there have been reports that you have viewed all new posts, the ability to add music to stories, video calls, etc. Yesterday, the company introduced another new feature: the ability to add question stickers to stories. It's a fun way to make your stories interactive. You will definitely want to try the new feature on yourself, but not all users have it. If you are one of them, don't worry, there is a solution.
In case you haven't figured it out, the question stickers are on the tab with other stickers in stories. You can write a message asking you to ask questions, and your followers will be able to do so by touching the sticker. Questions can be viewed in the same place as users who viewed the story. There you can touch any question to post a new story with an answer to it. This is a very fun and interesting way to learn new things about each other.
The function was released on July 10, but for some reason not everyone has it. Now you know that you are not alone. As with other new features, this may take some time to introduce. Your friends may have it earlier than yours, you just need to be patient. However, there is also a possibility that the function did not appear due to some kind of error. If so, follow the advice below.
1. Search in the right place
First, you need to make sure you're looking for the feature in the right place. It's on the tab with other stickers in stories. The question sticker is located between the gif sticker and the location sticker. To open stickers, take a photo or video in Stories, and then swipe up. The question icon should be there. If it is not there, go to the next item.
2. Check App Store for updates
The new function is available from version 52 Instagram for iOS and Android. The app needs to be updated for it to appear. Go to App Store and check the Updates tab. If there is no update, then it is not yet available.
3. Update the app
If you have an update available, you need to install it. The new function is then ready to use.
4. Reboot your device
If you've updated the app and the new feature still doesn't appear, try restarting your device. Sometimes it helps. After rebooting, check the application again.
The function still hasn't appeared? Then you will need to be patient and wait. This often happens with updates containing new functions, after a while it will become available to you.
In the meantime, you can ask your friends questions and get to know them from new perspectives. When the function is available to you, they can do the same.
