Instagram is taking its strong position in the social media space very seriously, and is constantly adding new features to keep the platform relevant for its existing users as well as gain new users. The updates have increased since Instagram incorporated stories into the app like those on Snapchat, its competitor.

The new feature is available in the stickers drawer and when your friends see it in your story they can tap on it to send you their questions. For example, in the screenshot above, you could roast the story-poster in as much excruciating detail as you'd like.

The feature doesn't seem to have rolled out to everyone yet. The new questions sticker offers a bit more room for users to ask open-ended questions that have more than two answer options and it allows their followers to come up with their own unique responses as well. How will you be using the new Questions sticker?

"It's a fun new way to start conversations with your friends so you can get to know each other better", a blog post from Instagram about the update said.

To respond to a follower, tap their question to create a new story with an answer.

Instagram quietly updated its mobile apps to allow users to add questions inside their Stories. Just swipe up to show your options and click on the Questions sticker.

The new sticker means friends can submit questions for you to answer - but only you can see who asked what.

For iOS, users will also be shown a blue alignment tool to help you centre your stickers.
