IMHO, the Friends filter that's been making the rounds is one of the best ones yet. If you want to find out if you're Rachel Green, Phoebe Buffay, Monica Geller, Joey Tribani, or even Gunther, you'll want to use this fun filter in your Stories. But like similar filters, it's a little tough to find, so here's how to get the Friends Instagram filter to reveal which character you are.

If you've seen your people on Instagram using the filter recently, then you'll know how it works. Created by Instagram user @natali.zmi, using the filter is a breeze once you have it.

The cards above your head will begin to flip through like a spinner before finally matching you with a character from the show. So, get ready to feel like you're going to the real Central Perk and give this filter a shot.
