Instagram: Here's How to Use the DM Me Sticker in Stories

Encourage viewers to send you a direct message

Did you know that you can add a DM Me sticker to your Instagram Stories posts? This sticker allows you to encourage your viewers to send you an Instagram Direct message, rather than directly replying to your Stories posts. Our guide will show you how to use the DM Me sticker in Stories.

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

Step 1: Once you’ve taken or imported a photo or video in Stories, tap the Stickers icon near the top-right corner of the screen.

Step 2: Tap the “DM Me” sticker.

Step 3: Type the prompt you want above your sticker. For instance, you can ask your viewers a question. Note: You don’t have to type anything if you’d rather have the DM Me sticker appear on its own. You can also tap the dice icon to view example prompts, and/or tap the colorful circle at the top of the screen to change the sticker’s color.

Step 4: When you’re done editing the sticker, tap “Done” in the top-right corner of the screen.

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