Instagram Rolls Out A New 'Chat' Sticker In Stories
You can use it by simply tapping the Chat sticker, which will then generate a Join Chat sticker on your Story post. Once your Story is published, your followers can tap on the sticker to request to join the group chat. You have the option to accept or deny their request. If you accept their request, they will be added to the group chat and be able to communicate with you as well as anyone else who is in the group chat. You also have the ability to remove anyone from the group chat and end the chat whenever you want.
Besides the Chat sticker feature offering users a way to communicate with their friends in similar fashion to a group text, it provides influencers and other public figures the opportunity to further engage and interact with their followers.
According to reports, Snapchat is working on a similar feature.
