Instagram: Here’s How to Use the Emoji Slider Sticker

Followers have more freedom in answering your questions

Instagram's new emoji slider sticker Instagram

Instagram released an emoji slider sticker for use in Stories, which allows your followers to answer questions using a sliding scale, rather than choosing one of two pre-determined answers. Our guide will show you how this feature 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 Stories, tap the sticker button near the top-right corner of the screen.

Step 2: Tap the emoji slider sticker.

Step 3: Type the question you’d like to ask your followers.

Step 4 (optional): If you want to change the text’s color, tap one of the colors underneath the sticker. Note: You can swipe from right to left to see different sets of colors.

Step 5 (optional): If you want to change the sticker’s background color from the default white, tap the “A” button at the top of the screen, and then tap one of the colors. Note: This will make the text white.

Step 6 (optional): If you want to change the emoji from the default “heart eyes emoji,” tap the emoji. Note: If you didn’t change any of the sticker’s colors in Steps 4-5 above, you won’t need to tap the emoji in order to change it.

Step 7 (optional): Tap one of the emoji underneath the sticker to add it to the poll. Or, scroll to the far right and tap the “+” button to see more emoji.

Step 8 (optional): After tapping the “+” button, either scroll through the list of emoji and tap the one you’d like to use, or tap the Search bar to search for an emoji manually. Note: By swiping from left to right on this menu, you can view your recently used emoji.

Step 9: When you’re done making changes to your sticker, tap “Done” in the top-right corner of the screen.

From here, you can continue editing your post as you normally would. Note: You can resize and move the sticker around the screen, just as you can with other embellishments.
