Instagram Discountinued Its Boomerang and Hyperlapse Dedicated Apps

Today, the Meta-owned photo and video sharing platform is reportedly discontinued its standalone not-so-popular Boomerang and Hyperlapse apps.

As noted by TechCrunch, the social network quietly removed both of its apps from the App Store and Google Play Store. The step was further taken by the company after announcing to discontinue the IGTV app last month.

Boomerang, a 1-second loop video-making app introduced in 2014 separately from Instagram, and after getting a lot of popularity with 300 million downloads since it launched, its key features were integrated into the main app.

While the Hyperlapse app was launched in 2015, featured multiple options to capture timelapse videos but it didn’t become very successful and that’s why recorded 23 million downloads since it launched.

As the company doesn’t publish the official statement, the primary aim behind the discontinuation is to make people spend more time on the main Instagram app using both of these features whenever they want.
