How to Access the Hidden Emoji Game

You won’t find this in the app store – the emoji game lives right inside your Instagram direct messages (DMs)! Here’s how to find it:

  1. Head to Your DMs: Open the Instagram app and tap on the little paper airplane icon in the top right corner. This is your inbox for private messages.
  2. Pick a Chat: Choose the friend you want to challenge (or start a new conversation if you prefer!).
  3. Emoji Time: Tap the text box as if you’re about to type a message. Instead of words, find your emoji keyboard and pick a single emoji to send. Any emoji will do!
  4. Let the Game Begin: The magic happens when you tap on the emoji you just sent. It’ll start bouncing around the screen! Now, the goal is to keep it bouncing by repeatedly tapping on it before it falls to the bottom.

The emoji starts moving slowly but gets faster with each successful tap. Test your reflexes! See how many times you can tap the emoji consecutively. Your high score is displayed below the chat box. Compare scores with your friends for some friendly competition and extra fun.

Experiment by sending a different emoji to change the background color and the speed at which it falls.

Remember, the emoji game is about having a lighthearted, silly time. Don’t stress if you’re not an emoji tapping master! As long as you and your friend can send emojis in Instagram DMs, you can enjoy this quick game together.
