'Ask a question': Instagram Stories wins new sticker; see how to use

Instagram launched a new "Ask a question" sticker on Tuesday (10) that allows you to create a question and answer section with followers in Stories. When capturing a photo or video and opening the app's sticker picker 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. Comments are grouped in the history view list and can be answered in a new post.
