Tik-Tok Like Features Coming On Instagram
Instagram is soon adding three new options – SlowMo, Echo and Duo on its Boomerang stories. The new feature lets users trim the length of the video.
“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,” the company said in a statement.
The new filters, which seem to have been inspired from TikTok, will come as an over-the-air (OTA) update. Using SlowMo, Boomerang videos are slowed to half their original speed. Echo mode results in a double vision effect.
