Instagram is testing out new options that will allow users to choose from a set of reaction stickers when responding to a Story.
The new response options as you can see above will give a set of sticks in four different categories. The instant emoji reactions are now available to use on many platforms, offering an easy way for users, especially mobile users to share a response to an update instead of typing a full sentence.
There is no such official statement by Instagram regarding this test and it may not ever come out. But it does seem like an interesting idea. It could provide new opportunities for the sponsored stickers, promoted reactions and more.
