Instagram is now zoom-friendly!
Now 6 years after it launched, a simple pinch gesture is all it takes to zoom on both images and videos as well – similar to other iOS Apps!
This aligns the social media channel with more serious photographers rather than just social media millennials. Traditionally, Instagram has been more about sharing moments than simply aesthetic or technical appreciation of photography; that could be why they never implemented zoom in the first place.
Unfortunately, Android users will have to wait a while longer; zoom will arrive for team Google “in the coming weeks.” No word on Windows support though.
