What is the Instagram Gesture Challenge?

The Instagram Gesture Challenge is an online trend that has taken over both Instagram and TikTok.

It's also being called the Emoji Hand Challenge and it's not hard to see why.

The challenge revolves around an Instagram filter that selects a group of hand emojis that you have to mirror.

How to get the Gesture Challenge filter

To get the required filter, you'll have to head over to i.m.noel's Instagram page as they are the creator of the Gesture Challenge filter.

Once you're on i.m.noel's page and following them, you'll need to click on the middle button in the menu above their photos and videos. This brings up the filters i.m.noel has created.
