One way of turning things more exciting is the app, “Boomerang.” If you want to create a short funny clip you can play both forward and reverse, this app does it perfectly. And, what else can be better than having an integrated version right inside Instagram.

How to use Boomerang inside Instagram is fairly elementary; no need to be a tech genius to have fun. Just like an average day on Instagram, open the stories camera and select “Boomerang” from the format picker under record button. Then, tap record and you will enjoy a freshly tailored short clip of photos.

There’s nothing sweeter than mentioning special someone you’re with or you’re simply thinking about.  This works the same as mentioning someone while writing a caption or commenting. You just have to do it on your Instagram Stories when you add text to a new story. Just type “@” followed by a username and select the person you want.

Their username will then appear in your story with an underline. And, whenever someone taps it, a pop-up will appear that enables them to visit that profile in an instant. Also, whenever someone mentions you, you’ll receive a notification in Direct.
