When adding text to Instagram stories it's not possible to add emoticons.
This is a pity for 2 reasons:
Reason 1: Stories are published later manually, so at the moment they are published I'm doing other things. I just want to publish the stories and not be busy with adding emoticons or looking where I should place those emoticons.
The reason why I have Later is to plan things...
Reason 2: different colleagues make the posts/stories and only 1 submits the stories manually. When submitting the story manually you just want to publish it and you don’t know which emoticons your colleague wanted to add to the message.
I really hope you can add this possibility soon! Other then this I really like Later!
