Meta introduces new stickers in Instagram stories; here’s how to use the feature

Facebook parent company has introduced new stickers in Instagram Stories, giving more ways to connect with friends over the things people care about most. Whether you want to share your favourite song of the day or create your own custom stickers from your photos or videos, we hope these new tools inspire you to get creative in Stories.

Share Your Favorite Songs With Add Yours Music

Combining the fun of the Add Yours feature with the music sticker, the Add Yours Music sticker allows you to share a song that fits your mood with your followers, who can add their music too.

Spotlight Memories With the Frames Sticker

Whether you want to shine a spotlight on memories with friends or throw back to a special moment, the Frames sticker turns any photo into an instant print. To reveal the content inside, your followers will have to shake their phone to develop the image.

Uncover Hidden Stories With the Reveal Sticker

With the Reveal sticker, you can post a hidden story for your friends and followers to uncover. The only way for them to see the content is to send you a DM.

Get Creative With Cutouts

With the Cutouts sticker, you can transform even your most casual, everyday moments into something unique to share with your friends. You can turn part of any video or photo in your camera roll into a custom sticker that you can add to your story or reel. Once you create your cutouts, they are saved and easily accessible in your sticker tray, so you can come back to them time and time again. You can even let others save and reuse the cutout stickers you created in their reels and stories.

To create a sticker from your camera roll:

  • Tap the stickers icon at the top, then tap on the scissors icon that says “Cutouts.”
  • Select a photo or video with a clear subject from your gallery.
  • A sticker will be automatically generated. If it’s not what you wanted, you can manually select the object you want for your sticker. Note: you can only pick one object.
  • Tap the “Use sticker” button to add it to your reel or story.

To create a sticker from photos on Instagram:

  • Go to the photo you’d like to transform into a sticker. Note: you’ll only see the option to create a sticker from eligible photos shared by public accounts on Instagram.
  • Tap the three dots in the top right of the post.
  • Tap Create sticker.
