Instagram adds new SloMo, Echo, Duo filters for Boomerang stories

Instagram's Boomerang Stories feature now has three new options that users will enjoy, TechCrunch reported.

These new effects can be found when you launch Boomerang and can be applied to videos in your gallery or when you record a video using Instagram's camera.

"Beginning today, Individuals on Instagram is going to have the ability to discuss new SloMo, Echo and Duo Boomerang manners on Instagram" that a Facebook company spokesperson tells. "Boomerang is an iconic part of that, and one of the most beloved camera formats.", Instagram said in a statement. An Instagram spokesperson told TechCrunch that it was probably the feature most used by users to record stories, so they made a decision to improve it.

SlowMo: As the name suggests, this effect slows down your Boomerang to capture each detail at half the speed as regular Boomerangs.

Now, the update boosts this feature because from now on, users will be able to add effects such as slow-motion, echo blurring, and Duo rapid rewind.

All the users of Instagram from around the world can use these new Boomerang effects. Users now also have an option to trim the Boomerang length. Next, touch the infinity icon along the top of the display screen to access the new impacts.

The company's shares closed at $ 524.86 as investors continued to weigh more heavily on the company and its prospects for future growth and success.


Echo - Add a motion blur effect so that a translucent trail appears behind anything moving, nearly as if you were drunk. In five years Boomerang has been available to users, there hasn't been a single big update that actually makes a difference to users.

These new effects are not original, as pointed out by Tech Crunch.

With this, users now create their Stories with up to six different photos, although this new feature was already on third-party apps to create similar images.

You may have heard the rumors of Instagram spicing up Boomerang with some new tools and features.

Duo: This effect speeds up and slows down the Boomerang at the same time, adding a textured effect. Both Android and iOS versions have got this new feature globally.
