Instagram has recently launched SlowMo, Echo and Duo effects, along with a new feature to trim their length to share Boomerang Stories.
“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 popular 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 are available in the Boomerang creator mode as an over-the-air update, located in the Instagram Stories.

What’s New in Instagram’s Boomerang Effects?
SlowMo works as the name suggest. It helps the user to slow down their stories to half their original speed while Echo creates a double vision effect. The third filter, which is Duo is a combination of both. It does rates up and slows down Boomerang while adding a textured effect. Instagram also allows users to trim and adjust the length of recorded Boomerang with the update.
These new effects will help Instagram to be more interesting. In the old version of Boomerang Story mode, many viewers skip it after the first loop since they were consistent. The extra visual flair of the new effects could keep people’s attention for a few more seconds and unlock new forms of comedy.
How to Use Instagram’s New Boomerang Effects?
You can find these new Boomerang Story effects by swiping right on Instagram, which will open the stories composer, and then swiping left at the bottom of the screen’s shutter selector. After shooting a Boomerang video, an infinity symbol button at the top of the screen will reveal some other effects and an option to trim the video.
Earlier in the new feature room, ‘Layout’ was entered, which allowed the user to upload multiple photos in a single post. And now Instagram has also made space for its new three features in the room.
With this feature, user can add up to 6 different photos. The user needs to open the camera inside Instagram and look for ‘Layout’ to start combining the images. After finishing, you can publish the story just like any other.
