Instagram adds new sticker slider emoji poll for stories

It’s a sticker that story posters can put on photos or videos, and allows their followers to answer questions using an emoji that slides along a scale.

To add an emoji slider sticker to your story, select it from the sticker tray after taking a photo or video. Place it anywhere you’d like and write out your question. Then, set the emoji that best matches your question’s mood. You can pick from a few of the most popular emoji, or choose almost any emoji from your library if you have something specific in mind.
