Earlier, many users would use Instagram story templates for a quiz, but now we have a built-in interactive feature for that. The quiz sticker is a combination of poll and questions sticker, but it differs from both of them as described below. One of the primary differences is that you should know the answer yourself. Otherwise there’s no point of adding this sticker.
So what is this quiz sticker and how to use it on Instagram stories? Find all the answers here.
1. What Is Quiz Sticker
We all have participated in some quiz during our school days. Instagram didn’t want us to forget those beautiful days, and thus they launched this new sticker. Just kidding!
On a serious note, the sticker functions precisely like a normal quiz. The creator offers multiple choice answers, and the followers need to select one.
Once they do that, they will be shown whether the answer is right or wrong. The format is similar to the game show ‘Who wants to be a millionaire’ except you won’t be winning anything.
2. How to Use Quiz Sticker
Launch the Instagram app and tap on the Your Story icon to start creating a new story. You can even tap the camera icon at the top. Then either capture a new photo or select an existing one and tap on the sticker icon.
From the sticker tray, tap on quiz sticker. A blank quiz sticker will be added.
3. Set Quiz Name
Once the quiz sticker is added, you will see the typing symbol. Type your question.
4. Add Answers
The quiz sticker lets you add up to four answers or choices. By default, you will only see spaces for two answers, which is the minimum requirement. When you fill the two, the third one will appear automatically and so will the fourth one when the third isn’t left empty.
Tip: You can add emojis as answers too.

5. Select Right Answer
Being familiar with the right answer is vital for quiz sticker. While creating a quiz, you will have to choose the correct answer first. To do so, tap on the A, B, C, D option present on the left side of the answer. The correct answer is shown in green to you.
6. Change Color of Sticker Box
Similar to other stickers on Instagram, you can customize the color of the quiz sticker too. For that, tap on the color palette icon at the top to cycle between the various colors. As of now, you cannot choose a custom color manually.
That’s it. Tap the Done button to add the new sticker to your story.
7. Interact with Quiz Sticker
As a viewer, if you see a quiz sticker, all you need to do is tap on the option that you feel is the correct one. You will be shown the result right away whether your answer is right or wrong. Green color indicates the right answer and red means wrong.
Note: Quiz sticker isn’t anonymous. The creator can see the option that you choose.
8. Change Your Answer
Unfortunately, once you tap on an answer, you cannot change it. So be careful and think twice before answering the question.
9. View Answers from Your Followers
After the story with quiz sticker goes live, you will be able to see the number of votes received by each option and what each person voted. The answers would be visible in the story itself and won’t arrive in as a message in Direct Messages (DM).
To view them, open the published story and hit the Seen by option at the bottom. Here you will see the votes and the answers given by each user who interacted with the sticker.

10. How Does Quiz Sticker Differ from Poll Sticker
For starters, the poll sticker is limited to two choices only. In that sticker, you don’t have to know the answer yourself. It is an excellent way of getting to know the answer based on the majority of votes.
You can use it to know what your followers think about something. For instance, ask them whether they like summer or winter season or whether they prefer Android or iPhone.
The quiz sticker question for the same situation will be putting up the logo of Apple and asking your followers to guess the operating system. When they tap on an option, they will see the correct answer right away. Things are different in the poll sticker for they will only see the percentage of each answer.
11. Different Than Questions Sticker
The questions sticker can be used in two ways. Firstly, you can let your followers ask you a question based on a situation where you then answer their questions. For instance, when you are traveling, you can put up a story with a questions sticker, and ask users whether they want to know something about the place.
In the second method, you ask a question and your followers will answer it without you giving them any choices as in poll or quiz stickers. For instance, ask them recommendations for a phone that you should buy.
Basically, you cannot present choices to your followers using questions sticker. Also, there is no right or wrong in questions sticker. It’s just a way of knowing something or gaining knowledge.
12. Add Multiple Stickers
Interestingly, you can add a combination of interactive stickers to your stories. That is, you can have a poll, quiz, and questions sticker in one story post. However, that wouldn’t make any sense. It’s better to use them separately and make the most out of them.
13. Quiz Sticker Missing
If you don't see the quiz sticker, update your Instagram app. If the sticker is still missing, sign out of the Instagram app and sign in again. Hopefully, the quiz sticker will appear in the sticker tray.
