Instagram's new chat sticker for Stories
Instagram

Instagram added a chat sticker to Stories, which allows users to invite their viewers to join a private group chat. Our guide will show you how this sticker works.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the Instagram application on iOS.

Step 1: Once you’ve taken or imported a photo or video into Instagram Stories, tap the sticker icon at the top of the screen.

Step 2: Tap the chat sticker.

Step 3: Type a name for your chat. This is the name that will be used for the group chat in your Direct inbox.

Step 4 (optional): If you want to change the color of the “Join Chat” text, tap the colorful circle at the top of the screen. Note: You can tap the circle multiple times to cycle through the different color options.

Step 5: When you’re done editing your sticker, tap “Done” in the top-right corner of the screen.

From there, you can drag, rotate and resize the sticker to best fit your post before sharing it.
