The Instagram Feature We’ve All Been Waiting For
You can now get a closer look at your friends' pictures.
In breaking news for all Instagram lovers, you can now zoom in on a friend’s photo. That’s right—no more worry of liking a photo due to accidental double-tapping.
Instagram announced the exciting news on their own feed earlier today. The post, which you can see below, is a short video that details how to zoom in on a photo. Simply pinch and expand to temporarily zoom in. The new feature is currently only available to iOS users, but Instagram promises it will be available to Android users in “the coming weeks.”
The one downside: You can’t stay zoomed in. As soon as you let go of the screen, the photo will bounce back to its original size. Nevertheless, many users seem happy with the enhancement, considering even a quick close-up of that amazing milkshake is a nice improvement.
