Facebook has enjoyed huge engagement through its various subsidiaries and its multiple stories functionalities. Now, the world’s largest social network is reportedly developing another option for WhatsApp, based on Instagram’s Boomerang.

WhatsApp Instagram-Boomerang Clone Reportedly Under Development

According to WABetaInfo, the team over at WhatsApp is working to bring a Boomerang-like feature over from Instagram.

For those unfamiliar, Instagram Boomerang is a tool which allows users to endlessly loop short videos backward and forward, something like a GIF.

Apparently, the WhatsApp version will accommodate videos less than seven seconds in length. It looks like the WhatsApp version will live inside the video type panel, which currently hosts video and GIF selections. The new feature will go alongside the existing options.

At this time, there’s no official word about the tool, so it’s not certain it will show up in wide release or even in beta.
