Boomerang is a feature that allows users to endlessly loop a video almost like a GIF.
This feature is extremely popular on Instagram and is soon to be launched on WhatsApp too.
According to WaBetaInfo– the feature tracker of WhatsApp, the feature is currently in development stage and will initially be available to iPhone users and then to the Android users as well.
The feature would allow users to create boomerang videos natively in the app and share it with their friends or as a status update in the app.
At present, WhatsApp allows users to create a GIF out of a video which is less than seven seconds. Now the same video can be converted into a boomerang as well. The option would appear alongside the GIF option on the top left corner of the video edit window, represented by an arrow pointing left.
This feature would be really handy to share videos with friends and family who don’t use other social media applications
