Instagram Stories Gets a New Sticker to Invite Friends to Talk
While we’re anticipating the great union of Instagram, Facebook, and WhatsApp, and experiencing glitches with pictures in all three, Instagram still has something to introduce within its app. The new element that appeared today can be added to Stories is called simply “Chat”.
What’s in Chat For You
If you see this button in somebody’s stories, you just need to tap it to join the ad hoc group chat, generated to discuss a certain story. It’s great when you really need the feedback from your subscribers. Making it easier for them to react is a very useful feature for those using Instagram as a channel to the audience.
To add this button to your story, make your video, text, or picture, and then proceed with it to After Effects section. Then select the stickers to add like you usually do. It’s easier to tap “Chat” into the search field, and the result will contain only one sticker: the one you need. After adding it, you can position it wherever you like on your text, photo, or video. You can combine it with other stickers as well if you consider them necessary.
It’s no replacement for closed group chats: these require adding participants manually. This option is rather stimulating open discussions. Probably popular grammers will get tired of it soon, after an initial honeymoon, but these days prepare for everyone to invite you to chat.
