Now You Can Zoom Into Your Instagram Photos
Instagram has been rolling out a lot of new features lately. Earlier this month, the photo-sharing app introduced Instagram Stories as a way to stay competitive with the latest social media app, Snapchat.
Today, a new update was made available for iOS and Droid users and one of its new components is a new zoom feature. How many times have you shown someone an Instagram photo on your phone and they double tap thinking they can zoom in?
Probably too many times. With this new zoom feature, it should make lurking easier. You can zoom in on photos, videos and Boomerangs. To zoom in, you just have to click on any photo or video in your news feed or your friend’s news feed just like you would with a photo in your phone.
Instagram announced the zoom feature on their Instagram page.
Starting today, you can pinch to zoom on photos and videos in feed, on profiles and on Explore. Dive into an adorable puppy’s smile or into every detail of your friend’s new shirt. Over the past six months, you’ve seen many exciting changes come to Instagram, from a new icon to longer videos and even a new way to share everyday moments with Instagram Stories. And as things change, we’re still focused on improving the core parts of Instagram. Zoom is available today for Instagram on iOS. Zoom will be available on Android in the coming weeks.
