Reports suggest that the messaging application is testing a new feature on Apple iOS operating system powered devices, that allows users to record videos of less than seven seconds that are played in a loop, a video function with a “boomerang” effect similar to that found on other platforms such as Instagram.

The recording option for this type of video is available in the WhatsApp video panel, which allows users to convert videos into animated GIF images with which they can convert videos in less than seven seconds. These videos can then be shared with other contacts.

The new feature was noticed in the WhatsApp version for the iOS system, but not for Android mobile phones, and at the moment, it is not activated in the final application for users. Even thought the feature is still in its beta mode and only for iOS devices, it should soon be out for testing on android powered mobile devices as well.

This new video function will be accompanied by the existing video features, such as the expected night mode. A feature that will finally come after the holidays. The application also works in multiplatform mode, which will be very useful and practical. Depending on the aerial capture, an editing function will also be available.

Forget Selfies: New Platform Helps Travelers Hire Reliable Local Photographers

Photographs are the best way to keep memories of a trip. But there is always someone who does not appear in the pictures, unless it is done by a person outside the group. For this reason and because the need to photograph every moment and immortalize each step prevents us from enjoying the moment, a platform where travelers hire local photographers to be able to enjoy the trip better and make sure that there is never a missing person in the photographs taken. I realized that there is always someone missing in the photos, we are never all, says Belén Huerta, one of the founders of the platform that allows the traveler to live the destination without looking at it through a screen.

“How could it be otherwise, the idea came traveling,” says Huerta, who launched the project after traveling through the United States and translate the idea into its TFG. Since January it has been active platform but, in reality, it is in March when they began to invoice and capture the memories that people most appreciate about travel. Despite its short journey, this idea, which was born from two Valencians in the world of communication, already has more than 270 clients on the web and 58,050 photos sent to its customers.

The photographers also serve as a guide when recommending places to visit or where to eat since they are people from the area. “The advantage is that the photographer knows corners of the city that travel guides do not show, so it is a plus that we add to the travel experience,” says Huerta after ensuring that the client sees who is hiring since the Photographers have a profile with all their information on the platform.

Currently, they have more than 300 registered photographers scattered around Valencia, Barcelona, ​​Madrid, Seville, Córdoba, Alicante and Malaga but also in international destinations such as Paris, Rome, Porto or Amsterdam. These, before being part of the Saytrip team, must be registered on the web and contribute previously made work so that the platform can evaluate them and thus begin to form part of the company. In addition, the platform opens service in some city when it has between six and seven photographers on that site. Also, if the place you want to visit the platform does not have professionals, from Saytrip they give the option of people bring their photographers.

The company does not have a closed price but the photographers, being self-employed, are those who establish the hours they want to work and the prices of their service. Thus, the price range ranges from 18 euros per hour to photographers who are charging 185 euros per hour . This variation is due, according to the founder, that not all photographers “are professionals.” But this, in the opinion of the founder, does not affect since it is the client who chooses the photographer he wants. The client knows at all times who is hiring since the profile comes out if he is a professional photographer.

This work is “an extra for the photographer” as it can combine this occupation with any other by establishing each one’s work rhythm. In addition, this form, in Huerta’s opinion, “serves the photographer to meet more people around the world by working, as has already happened, with clients from Indonesia or Australia.”

Once the photographer has taken the photographs, he has to send them to the platform to pass the quality process and, within a maximum period of three days, the client receives the original and edited photographs. In addition, according to Huerta, what they do sometimes is to send some of the images by WhatsApp to the client at the same time so that they can have some instantly.
