San Francisco: WhatsApp, the Facebook-owned chat app, is now working to bring Instagram's popular Boomerang feature for iOS devices.

Boomerang feature on Instagram currently allows users to endlessly loop a video backwards and forwards, almost like a GIF.

According to WABetaInfo, a website that tracks WhatsApp updates, the popular messaging platform is working on a Boomerang-style feature for iOS, but the functionality could land on Android devices as well.

WABetaInfo added that feature that would land on WhatsApp would be similar and would allow users to loop a part of any video that is less than seven seconds in length.

It was however, not clear when the feature would roll out for users.
