Popular social media network Instagram have released a new video taking application which goes by the name of Boomerang. In a statement on the networks website they said, “Today, we’re announcing Boomerang from Instagram, a new video app that lets you turn everyday moments into something fun and unexpected.”
Press the camera button and the app will then take a burst of photos which it will then combine into a mini video which will play backwards and forwards and is around a second in length. The video’s can be shared on Instagram and are automatically saved to your phones camera role. This may sound very much like a GIF, but Instagram are adamant it is something never done before “It’s not a photo. It’s not a gif. It’s a Boomerang.”
Boomerang is available today for free on the App Store and Google Play.
