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.
