Boomerang from Instagram was developed to give users of the wildly popular social media platform the ability to record and share short videos with their followers. Instagram is not the only social media website on which users may share these videos; they can be shared across a wide range of platforms.

While some may assume that Boomerang from Instagram is a knockoff of Vine, that actually could not be farther from the truth. Videos created using this app typically last fewer than two seconds. Rather than being an actual video recording, Boomerang videos are essentially quick slideshows of ten photos taken by the user. This givers users the option of creating fun videos that perfectly express their feelings at that moment.

Users are sure to appreciate the simple interface offered by Boomerang from Instagram. Simply tap the screen once to capture each one of the ten images you wish to combine to create your Boomerang video. The app works so quickly that you can easily create your video in just a few seconds. Once your video has been saved to your device, then you just need to share it on Instagram by simply tapping the clearly marked button on the interface.

If you wish to edit your video before sharing it, then you will find several helpful options under the editing tab. The options are easy to select and the results can be previewed before saving so you are able to make sure you are happy with the results before adding it to your device or sharing it with the social media world.


  • Instantly share creative videos with Instagram followers.
  • Edit videos simply and quickly.


  • Cannot use existing videos. Must create new videos directly within app.

We've updated Boomerang's app icon to match the new icon for Instagram.
