Instagram appears to be working on a new sticker called “Comment.” The sticker which is also described as “Discussion Sticker” according to Jane Manchun Wong, will if officially rolled out, swell the list of existing ones accessible to users on the ephemeral picture sharing app.

The Facebook-owned app has a long list of stickers, and is perhaps, the only social media company with so much passion for the feature. As expected, nothing much was disclosed by Jane per the new sticker. What that means is that we may have to just wait until the sticker is launched to know more about it.

Last April, Instagram launched the Quiz Stickers—and what that means is that you can make your stories more appealing by creating avenue for people to know you better. Reliable reverse engineer Jane Manchun Wong had tweeted about the feature back in February—posting a screenshot of the Quiz Stickers via her Twitter page.

Information about the stickers were scanty at the time, but we did emphasize then that many celebrities will love to use them when eventually released. Quiz stickers will be very useful for companies and radio/TV presenters who like to engage their followers online.

Instagram’s love for stickers dates way back—and as a matter of fact, the company has made a success of the feature. Just like Snapchat, the company has been able to keep its users asking for more since it first launched its first set of stickers.

Instagram said you could use Quiz Stickers to do a number of things including asking your friends and followers multiple-choice questions. This, according to the Facebook subsidiary, will allow your followers or fans to know you even more.

Two years ago, the social media giant launched the smiley face stickers, which allows you to add context to your story with stickers regardless of where you are or what you are up to. Once you take a photo or video, new stickers button will appear next to the text and drawing tools. Tap the smiley face to find customizable stickers for weather, the current time, and your location. To add a location sticker to your photo or video, simply search for your location and choose from the list. People watching your story will be able to tap the sticker to learn more about the location. However, Instagram says your story won’t appear on the location page itself.

Instagram added some new features to its version of Stories earlier in the year—countdown sticker, and question stickers. The new stickers can be used in Live Videos and to share music recommendations. For the records, Instagram continues to add series of features to Stories as it seeks to reinvent a feature it copied from Snapchat.
