Instagram gets a new emoji slider


Instagram is the number one photo-sharing service on the market. Facebook-owned service is getting better every year thanks to the company regularly adding more features and changes. Instagram is facing a lot of competition on the marker, with Snapchat closing the gap. There will be more updates this year on Instagram so the service can join the one billion club.

Instagram is today rolling out an update for its mobile apps. The update brings in the ability to add emoji slider sticker to their Stories. This won’t come as a surprise, as rumors say that Instagram has been testing the feature for months.

According to Instagram, the update includes a feature named Emoji Slider that allows users to react to questions using an animated emoji. This is a great addition to Instagram Stories that was first debuted back in 2016.

Instagram Stories is one of the most used Instagram features. Last year, the company announced that Stories feature officially hit 300 million daily active users, beating out the Snapchat counterpart, a jump of 50 million users.

Stories feature has been Instagram’s main focus in recent months. The company has been polishing its Stories feature since the day one to offer a better user experience. To add the new emoji slider to your Stories, you simply need to open the sticker tray and add it to your Stories. Once you are done, type in your questions and then select the emoji you wish to use.

Instagram now has more than 700 million monthly active users worldwide. The number’s set to grow in the coming months. Instagram’s main rival, Snapchat officially hits 173 million active users. Snapchat has its Stories feature, offering the same functionality. However, Snapchat Stories feature is losing users worldwide, mainly due to the release of Instagram Stories.

At this year’s F8 event, Instagram users now can share their GoPro action shots or song they like on Spotify to their Stories. Besides, the company is still working on the fix for crashing in Instagram and expanding its usefulness. Facebook also added a live video chat to Instagram. However, the feature is still in beta stages.
