Another day, another Instagram feature to play with!

Your Boomerangs are about to get a little more ~*extra*~ thanks to these new modes: SlowMo, Echo, and Duo.

Facebook company spokesperson told TechCrunch, "Your Instagram camera gives you ways to express yourself and easily share what you’re doing, thinking or feeling with your friends. Boomerang is one of the most beloved camera formats and we're excited to expand the creative ways that you can use Boomerang to turn everyday moments into something fun and unexpected."

So how does it work?

Go to your Stories, look for the Boomerang mode, and record a clip like you normally would. If the new modes are already available for you, then you should see different options for editing your video clip. 

SlowMo obviously lets you slow down your Boomerang; Echo creates a motion blur or double vision after the image moves; and Duo simultaneously slows down and speeds up your clip, creating a texturized effect. 

But if you're on Snapchat and TikTok, then these features aren't exactly life-changing 'cause variations of these modes have been available on both platforms for a while now. Hey, at least now Instagram users can join in on the fun. ;)
