Instagram adding pinch-to-zoom for photos and videos

Instagram Logo

#Instagram has seen several upgrades over the past few months, including something that angered fans of Snapchat. Well, the company has announced a new feature today, but a far less controversial one. Users will be pleased to know that your favorite photo sharing app is now getting pinch-to-zoom support, allowing you to zoom into pictures and videos that are found on your feed.

The feature will be available on iOS right away, while Android users might have to wait a few weeks. Since the company hasn’t shared precise details on when that might be, we don’t have a specific date to circle on our calendars.

While these are pretty interesting additions, pinch-to-zoom will probably not work the same way with videos which are pretty low quality on Instagram. However, it’s likely that Instagram will enhance the video upload quality to aid this particular feature. We’re curious to see how Instagram will handle these challenges.
