The Instagram feature we have all been waiting for is finally here

The Instagram feature we have all been anticipating has finally made its long-awaited debut.

From today, users of the popular photo sharing app will be able to zoom in on their friends videos and photos using ‘pinch-to-zoom’.

The company made the exciting announcement on their social media accounts this morning.


“Starting today, you can pinch to zoom on photos and videos in feed, on profiles and on Explore,” Instagram said.

“Dive into an adorable puppy’s smile or into every detail of your friend’s new shirt.”

Over the past six months, Instagram has made a number of exciting changes including longer videos and even a new way to share everyday moments with recently launched ‘Instagram stories’.

Zoom is available today for Instagram on iOS, however won’t be available on Android until another few weeks.
