Instagram has announced a new variation of its polling sticker
for Stories: now there’s an emoji slider that lets you ask and
answer questions with an animated emoji on a sliding scale.
The sliding scale allows users to ask people “how” instead of
simply picking between two options, using an emoji of choices
to add context to the question. For example, you could have a
slider to ask how an artist’s new single is or how ️ friends
like their food. The emoji will animate as you drag it up or
down the scale, and you can check in on how individual friends
answered as well as see the overall average of all responses.
To add an emoji slider sticker in your Instagram story, choose
one from the sticker tray (where you find other options like
poll and location) after you take a photo or video. Then place
it, write out a question, and choose the emoji you’d like to
use. (Instagram says you can use “almost any emoji from your
Instagram’s emoji slider should be available as part of the
latest Instagram update for Android and iOS.
