So you̵

7;ve tried sending emojis, stickers and even GIFs as comments. But nothing exactly reflects your exact expression. Instagram DMs selfie stickers solve this very important problem. Here’s how to send selfie stickers (with animated emojis) on Instagram.

Using Instagram’s selfie stickers feature, you can create a short, expressive, animated sticker. You can record your expression or use an animated emoji overlay (with hearts, laughter emoji and more).

This feature is available with Instagram’s cross-platform messaging update that provided the ability to send Facebook friends to Instagram DMs. You can download this update from the Settings menu in your Instagram app for iPhone or Android.
