To add links to Instagram Stories you no longer need 10k followers; here's how it works

Users can now add a link to their Instagram Stories by using the "Link" sticker

October 28, 2021 / 12:43 PM IST

Instagram users for the longest time have asked for a feature to add links to a story. The feature was exclusive to people with a verified account or those who had more than 10,000 followers on the Facebook-owned platform. The feature has now been made available to all users worldwide.

It is being rolled out in a phased manner. If you have not received it yet, we suggest waiting for a few days until the rollout is complete.

How to add links to Instagram Stories?

The process of adding a link to Instagram Stories is quite simple. Just follow these steps:

  1. Click/ record a Story or upload one.

  2. Select the sticker tool from the top navigation bar. 

  3. Tap the “Link” sticker to add the link you want and tap “Done”. 

  4. Place the sticker on your story and tap on the sticker to see colour variations.

Instagram says that it wants users to share things that matter to their friends and family. The platform, however, will take action against those who do not follow the community guidelines.

Accounts that repeatedly share hate speech and misinformation or other content that violates the Instagram Community Guidelines will not have access to the Link sticker.
