WhatsApp is reportedly working on an Instagram-style Boomerang feature

The Facebook-owned instant messaging app is working on new features that will enhance your chat experience. On the other hand, Boomerang was first seen on Instagram in 2014 and by 2015 it was available as a standalone app from Instagram.

WhatsApp is prepping many new features to ensure users get a better experience with the service. This feature is used to loop the videos in a unique way. This new Boomerang feature will mimic the functionality of Instagram and will offer the same interface. This is a feature which allows the users to record a short video clip.

Durant slowly straightened up with a perplexed expression on his face . "Now I'm just waiting to get back", he said. He is expected to travel with the team to Los Angeles next week and have his calf re-evaluated.

Reports by WABetaInfo suggest that WhatsApp has been working on the feature since a few weeks. Record a video for less than 7 seconds and select the boomerang option from the top right corner. Further, the video loops created through the new development could be shared with WhatsApp contacts through a message or uploaded as a Status update. At the same time, users can choose to send the video as it is or as a GIF. In 2017, WhatsApp started a "Status" feature which is virtually the same as "Instagram Stories" that was introduced six months earlier.

The Video Type Panel will host this feature and it will be available for the videos with less than seven seconds long. Instagram first launched Boomerang app in 2015, and it later integrated the feature on the app.
