WhatsApp is developing a boomerang feature

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

After publishing an article including info about a future WhatsApp feature that will allow to use the same WhatsApp account on multiple devices, WhatsApp is continuing to work on new features to release in a major update, in future.


  • The Boomerang feature is not available yet.
  • WhatsApp is working on the feature in the last few weeks, in order to ensure the best bug-free experience for you, before the release for everyone.
  • For this reason, there is no issue if you have updated your WhatsApp beta for Android and iOS and it’s not visible for you, seen that it is in a development stage.
  • I have no details about when the feature will be released for everyone, so I invite you to be patient.

Just like Instagram, WhatsApp is developing their own Boomerang feature, a functionality that allows to loop a video.
The option will be available in the Video Type panel (the same that allows the user to convert a video to GIF) when the video is less than 7 seconds, and it can be used to easily create a boomerang of your videos, to send to your contacts and as status update.
To discover how the feature works, please check out this video:

If you experience issues to view this media, please temporarily disable the night mode on this website and try again

Initially the feature will be available on iOS, then it will come for Android too.
As for any feature published by WABetaInfo, I cannot provide any ETA for the release of the feature.
