Instagram rolls out Question Stickers for Live videos

Instagram is rolling out the Question stickers for live videos. This means that one can now place the question tag before going live and their viewers can ask questions in real time. 

Read the complete press release below

We are bringing the Questions Sticker to Instagram Live, to make interacting with your friends, family and fans in the moment, more interactive and personal. Ask your favorite beauty blogger how to do their favorite makeup look and they can give you a how-to in the moment, or your favorite basketball player how to get that perfect shot and they can show you in real time. 

Using the feature for the first time ever, check out how leading actress and one of Instagram’s top creators, Alia Bhatt (@aliaabhat) engaged with her fans during a Live she hosted today.

To ask a question and have it answered Live, go to someone's story and respond to their questions sticker as you normally would. If they go Live to answer, you'll see “Q&A” in your stories tray. Join the Live video and you'll see the question they're answering at that moment. If you want to ask more questions while they're already live, you can go back to their story to ask a question and it'll appear in their questions list. People going Live can also share photos and videos from their camera roll to their Live video, so you can see behind-the-scenes content from the creators you love.

Questions in Live will be rolling out on the latest version of Instagram for iOS and Android starting today, and the ability to share photos and videos in Live is available for broadcasters on iOS and viewers on both iOS and Android.
