Every time someone would place a chat sticker on their story, their friends would be able to tap the sticker and request access to the chat.

It is up to the original poster of the Story to decide who to include in the new chat, which would happen on the direct messages inbox.

However, users’ replies to Instagram’s announcement did not seem excited about the feature, Most of the replies noted that these extra stickers are not needed.

“How about instead of messing up what was a perfectly good app you concentrate on fixing the algorithm, etc. Your stupid features are killing it,” a user wrote.

“How about you fix your app before adding new stuff???? I can’t even log into my account! Can’t wait till someone makes something better than Instagram! You guys don’t even care about the users,” wrote another.

“This is absolutely ridiculous and it’s unacceptable @instagram start listening,” said a tweet.

The photo-messaging app that has over 1 billion users has a plethora of stickers for purposes including polls, questions, mentions, locations, hashtags and countdowns, among others.
