Instagram has introduced a new interactive sticker called "Message to reveal." This feature is designed to engage followers in a fun and mysterious way by allowing them to send a DM to reveal a hidden part of your story.

Along with the "Message to reveal" sticker, Instagram has introduced three new stickers for stories: "Frames," "Cutouts," and "Add Yours Music." These additions are designed to enhance the fun and creativity of story creation.

In this guide, we'll walk you through the steps to get the Instagram "Message to Reveal" sticker and explain how it enhances viewer interaction on your stories. But, before that, turn off the Meta AI on Instagram.

How to Get the Instagram "Message to reveal" Sticker

Applying the Instagram "Message to reveal" sticker creates a blur effect over your story. The story remains blurred for viewers until they send you a message through the sticker's prompt, at which point the underlying photo is revealed.

Here's how you can get the Instagram "Message to reveal" sticker:

  • Open Instagram and create a new story.
  • Tap on the sticker icon (square smiley face) located at the top of the screen.
  • Search for and select the "Reveal" sticker from the sticker menu.
  • Finally, position and resize the sticker as needed.

When viewers come across your story, it initially appears blurred. They can clear the blur by either sending you a message or reacting to the story with emojis. This feature is an effective strategy to boost engagement.

Remember, the sticker itself won't disappear after the reveal; it will remain over the image. If the sticker covers a crucial element of your picture, that part will still be obscured even after the content is unblurred. So, place the sticker carefully.

With that, we are wrapping up our guide on the "Message to reveal" sticker on Instagram. We hope you found this guide informational. Before heading off, learn how to see the exact time of a post, story or comment.
