Prior to the questions sticker addition, users could offer followers two options in the app and those followers could choose one or the other and Instagram would show the percentage of users who chose each option.

The questions sticker is now globally available as part of Instagram version 52 on iOS and Android.

The new feature is a strong step towards increasing engagement in Instagram stories, and lets users add a question to their stories, to which their followers can respond directly through the sticker itself. Type out your prompt then place it wherever you'd like and share it to your story. When you check your own story, you will now be able to see who asked you a question and what they said.

Tap any question you'd like to answer and it'll create a new story for your response. Users can then type in their prompt and add the sticker to the photo or video being posted to their story.

But the boxer was left shocked when Samira responded: "I don't know if you could bring Frankie back". Samira is not the first contestant to leave the villa without being dumped this series.

The new question sticker on the polling feature means friends can submit questions for you to answer - but only you can see who has asked what. Just swipe up to show your options and click on the Questions sticker.

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.

Followers will see your poll when they view your story, and can cast their own vote to reveal which choice is in the lead. The updates have increased since Instagram incorporated stories into the app like those on Snapchat, its competitor.
