How to Play the Emoji Game on Instagram

Instagram secretly released a new feature for direct messages.

The feature turns any emoji into a game, similar to Brick Breaker.

But instead of breaking bricks, you need to keep bouncing the emoji.

You must control a paddle and place it underneath the emoji to bounce it.

Do not let the emoji fall to the ground or you’ll lose the game.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to play the secret emoji game on Instagram from your direct messages.

  1. Open Instagram and tap on the direct message icon.
  2. Open a chat with someone.
  3. Navigate to the emoji keyboard.
  4. Send them an emoji (e.g. laughing emoji).
  5. Tap on the emoji to start playing the emoji game!
