Instagram adds new features 'Reveal', 'Frames', 'Cutout' and 'Add Yours Music Stickers'. Here’s how you can use them

New Delhi: Instagram has recently rolled out an innovative 'Reveal' sticker, empowering users to share concealed Stories. Meta clarified that this content can only be accessed by sending a direct message (DM) to the account that posted it.

Furthermore, Instagram unveiled a range of other stickers in a blog announcement, enabling users to share their favorite daily tunes and craft custom stickers from their own photos or videos.

Discover the mystery with the 'Reveal' sticker

To use the 'Reveal' sticker, simply access the Stickers icon while creating a new Story and select the 'Reveal' option. You'll then be prompted to input a hint that will tantalize your followers, offering a peek into what's hidden behind your blurred story. After posting, your followers can unlock the content by sending you a DM, eliminating the need for individual approval for each message.

Add your groove with 'Add Yours Music' sticker

Introducing the 'Add Yours Music' sticker, Instagram provides a new avenue for users to share music reflecting their moods. Much like existing stickers, users can interact with the 'Add Yours Music' sticker by sharing their favorite tunes. To access this feature, tap on the Stickers icon and choose the 'Add Yours Music' option. From there, simply tap 'Add Music' and select your preferred track from the Instagram music library.

Frame your memories with the 'Frames' feature

In addition, Instagram presents the new Frames feature, a sticker that transforms images into virtual Polaroids. Users can reveal these frames by either shaking their phones or pressing the "Shake to reveal" button, adding a nostalgic touch reminiscent of traditional posts. When an image is added, the Frames sticker automatically showcases the date and time of the photo, with an option to include a caption for further personalization.

To utilize the Frames feature, tap on the stickers icon while creating a Story, and select the 'Frames' sticker. This will open your photo gallery, allowing you to choose the image you wish to frame. After selecting the image, you can also add a caption to enhance your Story.

Get creative with the 'Cutout' sticker

Lastly, Instagram, under Meta's ownership, introduces the Cutouts sticker, enabling users to transform sections of photos or videos into customized stickers for their Stories or Reels. Similar to cutout tools in Apple and Samsung devices, users can isolate objects using touch gestures.

When using the Cutouts sticker, you'll be directed to your photo and video library, where you can choose a suitable image or video featuring a distinct subject. This action will automatically generate a new sticker, or users can manually select the object they wish to use. Simply tap the "Use sticker" button to incorporate it into your Story or Reel.

In conclusion, Instagram's latest updates bring an array of exciting features to enhance storytelling and creativity on the platform. So, whether it's unveiling hidden stories, sharing favorite tunes, framing cherished memories, or adding personalized touches, the possibilities are endless, inviting users to unleash their creativity and make their mark on the platform.
