You can finally zoom in on Instagram photos and videos!

One of the major annoyances with Instagram has been the inability to zoom in on any photo or video. All that is about to change though, with the latest update for Instagram’s iOS version finally enabling pinch to zoom.

Only iOS for now sadly
This much requested feature is currently live only on the iOS version of the application, however, the company promises that pinch to zoom will go roll out toAndroid users in a few weeks.

Instagram shared the news to its users via a post saying “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. ” For now, the feature has only been made available to Instagram for iOS, while the Android app will receive the feature in the coming weeks”

The ‘pinch to zoom’ feature will work on photos and videos in the main feed, as well as on Individual profiles and Explore.

Instagram Stories
This comes right after Instagram introduced ‘Stories’ in a bid to rival competition like Snapchat and Twitter. Stories allows you to combine multiple videos and photos into a single post, or a ‘story’. These stories disappear after 24 hours and also allow for zoom while recording.
