In the filters provided by TikTok, you are given 30 seconds to come up with 1 of all 4 categories and this time pressure makes the game very difficult.

You may know a lot of people, geography, and animals but you will need a lot of practice to play this game calmly.

Is the filter on Instagram?

Of course it is. Anything that is trending on TikTok can always be found on Instagram but there are certain differences in the filter of course.

On TikTok, you show your hand to the camera to reset the timer and get a new alphabet. When it comes to Instagram, there is no time limit and the alphabet generator rotates and gives you a random number every time you start using the filter.
