Pinch to zoom is a mainstay of gestures across mobile devices. It’s a great way to get extra detail on anything and it’s coming to Instagram.
In a post today Instagram has announced that iOS users will be getting an update that will allow them to pinch to zoom on photos and videos in their stream, while Android users will have to wait for a few weeks. The feature will, as Instagram points out let you ‘Dive into an adorable puppy’s smile or into every detail of your friend’s new shirt’.
It will take a little while to arrive, but if you’ve been dying to get a closer look at something on Instagram, relax it will be here soon.
