Facebook-owned Social Networking cum Photo-sharing platform, Instagram on Saturday added three new features to its Boomerang filter. Boomerang filter in the Stories section is the most popular and highly used filter. You can use it by adding new effects to make it look more impressive. Now, the company has added new SloMo, Echo and Duo Filters to it.
With these new features, users can trim out the videos and can use them within their Instagram Stories by selecting the Boomerang option.
If we talk about the new features, the new SloMo feature lets you reduce the playtime of the video to half its original speed. While the Echo feature adds double effects to the original story recorded by you on your phone. You can use the Boomerang along with Duo feature to speeds up the video and slows it down simultaneously. This will add a new impressive textured effect to your Instagram Story.
Apart from this, users are also allowed to trim down the recorded stories with the Boomerang filter. Once you are done with the recording, the new option now lets you trim down the video as per your needs. The company has shared all the information on Twitter via its official Twitter handle. You can check out the embedded tweet which is given below:
The new Instagram update will come as an OTA update i.e. Over The Air update for both, Android and iOS mobile platforms. Once your Instagram app is updated to its latest version, you will be able to use these newly added features under the Boomerang filter.
