Instagram on Android getting iOS like 3D Touch feature

Instagram Logo

#Instagram on #Android has just received a new update which introduces a rather interesting feature on board. As seen by a popular blog, the update now allows you to get a quick peek of images that are listed in a grid (this could be someone’s profile or a company page). When you long press one of the images that are listed on the page, you will get a pop up version of the picture, allowing you to quickly like or comment.

This could be an experimental feature so don’t be surprised if it’s removed from future iterations of Instagram. But it’s good to see that the developers can bring in a feature such as this, which was otherwise limited to Apple’s iPhone 6s and the 6s Plus which use dedicated 3D Touch hardware for pressure sensitivity on the display.

This goes to show that implementing a feature like this doesn’t necessarily require dedicated hardware. This 3D Touch feature is making its way to devices with the latest update of the app. Are you seeing this on Instagram yet? Let us know in the comments section below.
