Dentsu Webchutney and Flipkart gamify Instagramís Emoji Slider feature

18 Jun 2018

Dentsu Webchutney has launched a campaign using Instagram’s emoji slider feature for the exclusive launch of Honor 7A- Slideshot on Flipkart.

Instagram has emerged as an engaging and innovative platform in recent years. With every update seeing a new feature, brands have leveraged them to create memorable campaigns.

It’s newest feature – the emoji slider sticker on Stories, is another fun place where your friends can interact with each other. The emoji slider lets you ask more questions and adds a layer of emotional context when you want to find out how your friends feel about something. But can a simple emoji slider be used for something even bigger?

Conceptualized by Dentsu Webchutney, Bengaluru, it cleverly gamifies the emoji slider feature to highlight the phone’s features. A set of 3 games have been posted on their Instagram story where users must be at their dexterous best, to slide the emoji and quickly take a screenshot when it’s in the right box. Users have to DM the screenshot to Flipkart to win gift vouchers worth ?10k.
