Instagram UWP gets Boomerang and photo bookmarking

Published by at

Instagram's official UWP application for Windows 10 has seen numerous updates through 2016, culminating in the addition of 'stories' back in the summer. And we've now had a further major update for Instagram for all Windows 10 variants, including mobile and desktop, this time adding a 'Boomerang' video-to-animation mode and a way to save photos in your timeline that you like and want to keep bookmarked.

Here's a handful of screens showing some of the new features in action:

Note the bookmark control beneath each image, below-right - tap this to 'save' it to a private area on your account on Instagram.

Within the camera interface, there's a Boomerang mode, where you shoot a few seconds of video and it gets looped backwards and forwards for comic effect - plus a 'hands-free' mode, a.k.a. err.... start and stop recording, rather than having to hold the control down, the normal way Instagram's video cam works.... I know, I know...
