Instagram has announced a new interactive feature for its stories called the “Emoji slider”. It’s a poll feature that lets your audience give feedback or rate your posts, with the help of emojis. The update is available for both iOS and Android.
The new feature is interesting, and can be used in multiple ways. For example, you can click a picture of your food and ask your audience to describe how delicious it looks, with the help of the tongue emoji. You can also use it to get opinions on the latest movie in theaters, by using the thumbs up emoji. The emoji present on the slider will animate as one drags it up or down the scale. After taking the poll, you can check what most people have answered, by simply swiping up on the post, and checking the viewers list.
Adding an “Emoji slider” to your Instagram Stories is simple. All you have to do is click a picture, and go to the sticker tray. The “Emoji slider” will be present here. Click on it, and place it on the image. Add a question and choose the emoji you think that goes best with it. There are already a few options available, but you can add the ones you need.

Instagram introduced the “Emoji slider” looking at the popularity of their original poll feature launched in October last year. The new feature lets users go beyond just a simple Yes and No, to get more insight on the audience’s preference. Not to mention, it looks really fun.
