The new "Shake to reveal" sticker on Instagram is an interactive feature designed to enhance your social media toolkit. Introduced for Coachella 2024, this unique sticker transforms your camera roll photos into stylish Polaroids.

The sticker was developed in collaboration with the K-pop girl group LE SSERAFIM. It mimics the photo development process of Polaroid cameras, where shaking the photo helps it to develop, adding a fun and retro twist to viewing Instagram images.

This guide will walk you through the steps to access and use the "Shake to reveal" sticker on Instagram. But, before that, you might be interested in adding it to your highlights on Instagram without adding to the story.

How to get the "Shake to reveal" frame on Instagram

The "Shake to Reveal" frame is available as a sticker on Instagram. When you use this sticker, it applies a frame to your uploaded photo and initially displays a greyed-out overlay. The image remains hidden until the viewer shakes their device, revealing the underlying photo.

Here's how you can use the "shake to reveal" sticker on Instagram to add a Polaroid-style look to your photos:

  • Open Instagram and create a new story, then upload the picture you want to feature.
  • Tap the sticker icon, typically a square smiley face, at the top of the screen.
  • Search for "Frames" in the sticker search bar or browse through the available stickers to locate it.
  • Select the Frames sticker to add it to your photo. You can adjust its placement and size by dragging and pinching it as needed.

It is worth mentioning that only one image can be framed at a time using the Polaroid Frame. In other words, you cannot add multiple photos to one Instagram Story when using the sticker.

If the "Shake to Reveal" sticker is not appearing for you, this could be because the feature is not yet available in your region, or it hasn't been rolled out to your account.

That covers everything about the "Shake to reveal" sticker on Instagram. Hope you found this guide helpful. Before heading off, learn how to see the exact time of a post, story or comment.
