"Instagram is a place for self-expression and we've loved seeing the ways in which our community has been showing up for each other, and creating an environment of positivity and kindness. We've seen it with the nation lighting candles and clapping to applaud healthcare and frontline workers. This new sticker is a small reminder to show gratitude everyday, and stay connected with each other through difficult times," Tara Bedi, Public Policy and Community Outreach manager, Instagram said.
This is the latest sticker Instagram launched in light of the ongoing pandemic. It first launched the "Stay Home" and "Ghar Pe Raho" stickers which are still available on the app. Instagram also changed the default prompt of the question sticker from "Ask Me Anything" to "How can I help?"
