Instagram has released a new countdown sticker for events or situations that the user wants to present to his followers. Available in the iPhone application (iOS) and Android phones, the ideal resource for setting dates and times for parties, meetings with friends and other personal activities. When configuring the sticker, it is possible to define a name for the count, choose an end date and, if necessary, an exact time when the shared event will start.
