Instagram launched on Tuesday (10) a new sticker "Ask a question" that allows you to create a section of questions and answers with followers on Stories. When capturing a photo or video and opening the app's sticker selector on Android or iPhone (iOS), the user can tap the new Questions item to create an open field for others to ask what they want. The comments are grouped in the list of story views and can be answered in a new post.
