Thanks to Instagram’s newest update, you can home in on the finer details of every post on your feed without needing to squint at your device.
Beginning today, iOS users will have access to a brand-new zoom feature, one that lets you get up close and personal with your contacts’ photos and videos. Simply pinch the screen to zoom in on posts in your feed, on profiles, and on Explore.
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.
