Introducing Boomerang from Instagram
It’s not a photo. It’s not a gif. Here comes Boomerang from Instagram, a new video app that lets you turn everyday moments into something fun and unexpected.
Capture a friend jumping off a diving board, defying physics as she flies back and forth through the air. Transform an ordinary selfie with your friends into a funny video. Get that exact moment your friend blows out his birthday candles, then watch them come back to life again and again.
Press a button, and the app does the rest. It takes a burst of photos and stitches them together into a high-quality mini video that plays forward and backward, like a boomerang. Shoot in portrait or landscape mode. Share it on Instagram. Boomerang automatically saves it to your camera roll.
Boomerang was inspired by the visual stories you tell on Instagram. With looping videos and Hyperlapse, you experiment with motion in new and exciting ways; Boomerang will offer you many new ways to play with your content as well.
