Before you try to add them to your stories, make sure to update the app to the latest version.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to add tap or shake to reveal on your Instagram story using the new frames sticker.

  3. Select “Frames” and add a photo.
  4. Add a caption and post the story!

When you post a story using the “Frames” sticker, people who view your Instagram story need to tap or shake their phones to reveal your story.
