Instagram’s New Zoom Update = What We’ve Been Waiting For.

Instagram just announced a feature that everyone has been waiting for. The ability to zoom into your friend’s photos has been a long wait for most users of the app, and today, they delivered. For iOS users, you can now utilize the “Pinch Zoom” function.

The update is exactly how it sounds. Using your index finger and thumb, you can place them in the area of the photo that you want to zoom in on and simply pull them apart.

Now, the option to zoom is only available for iOS users at the moment, but in a few weeks, the update will be available for Android.

According to the release from Instagram:

“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.”
