Facebook-owned photo-messaging app Instagram is reportedly rolling out the “ability to ask questions” in its “Stories” feature that would let users respond to questions posted in “Stories” with detailed and long text.

Along with the polls and emoji sliders that are popularly being used to answer questions on “Stories”, with the new feature Instagram seems to be trying the “open-ended questions” format, tech portal Android Police reported on Sunday.

Photo-messaging app Instagram is testing a new feature that allows users to react to “Stories” with emojis, just as they can react on Facebook.

The feature being tested in the latest version of the app shows six emojies — clapping hands; laughing with tears; heart-eyes; shocked/surprised; sad; and fire.

It also appears that to react — and to get emoji reactions — both the user and the uploader must have the updated version of Instagram installed on their devices.

When asked about the test, an Instagram spokesperson gave IANS an affirmative answer.
