Everything You Need to Know About Instagram's Three New Boomerang Story Filters
Recently, the Facebook-owned Instagram has brought three new features to share Boomerang Stories namely, SlowMo, Echo, and Duo. Also, a new feature is added to trim their length. The newly released filters will be available in the Boomerang composer located in the Instagram Stories camera.
However, the company’s statement states that, “Your Instagram camera gives you ways to express yourself and easily share what you're doing, thinking or feeling with your friends. Boomerang is an iconic part of that, and one of the most beloved camera formats. Instagram is excited to expand on the creativity and give you new ways to use Boomerang to turn everyday moments into something fun and unexpected”.
As the name suggests, with SlowMo Boomerang videos are slowed to half their original speed, while Echo has a double vision effect, boosting Boomerang and Duo, which both speeds up and slows down Boomerang adding a texturized effect. Also, with this update its possible to trim and adjust the length of the Boomerangs which are recorded.
How to Access the New Effects
- Take a Boomerang as usual
- Open the Story Camera
- Swipe over to ‘Boomerang’ on the carousel
- Tap the Shutter Button or Hold it down and Let go.
- Tap the infinity symbol along the top of the display to access the new effects.
Along with this, Instagram users will also get the opportunity to include multiple photos in a single-story, with the new ‘Layout’ feature. Even though, this feature was already present on other third-party apps to create similar images. Users need to open the Stories Camera inside the Instagram app and choose ‘Layout’ to combine the photos they want. After everything, just publish the Story just like every other Story.
