Whatsapp Messenger is testing a new feature remarkable to boomerang-style that would allow users to create looping videos.
Instagram’s Boomerang function allows you to endlessly loop a video backward and forwards, akin to a GIF. WABetaInfo says the WhatsApp take is similar, allowing you to loop a part of any video that’s less than seven seconds in length.
When the feature is launched (WhatsApp Boomerang), it will be available in the Video Type panel, which usually allows you to choose a video or GIF as the desired format before sending it.
The feature is still in development, and there is no given date of release… but an addition to WhatsApp considering how popular the feature is on Instagram.
It will first roll out to iOS users before getting onboard the Android platform. Let us know in the comment what else you’ll like to see added to WhatsApp.
