How to Use the New Challenge Sticker on Instagram Stories
With #quarantine keeping us all indoors, people are getting more and more creative how to spend their time at home. Between parents trying Tik Tok for the first time (yikessss) to Instagram challenges, there’s more content than ever trending online. Taking part in a social media challenge just got a whole lot easier thanks to the new challenge sticker for stories!
Now if you see a challenge you want to participate in while scrolling your friends’ stories, you can join instantly by tapping on the sticker.
Doing so will bring you to the Instagram Stories camera where you can record your challenge and then nominate a few friends — it’s as simple as can be.
Here’s how to use the new challenge sticker for Instagram Stories:
Start by opening the stories camera and recording your challenge. Once you’re done recording, open the stickers tray and tap the challenge sticker.
Next, type in the name of the challenge (you can also browse through Instagram’s challenge database by typing in keywords like “don’t rush”).
Finally, nominate a few friends by tagging them directly in the story.
And that’s it! Anyone you tag in your story will be notified by DM and they can either re-share it to their own stories or tap the sticker to attempt the challenge themselves.
Note: If you come across a story with a challenge sticker being used (and you weren’t tagged in the story!), you can tap the sticker to browse through other people’s challenges or you try the challenge yourself.
