Lately, Instagram has been rolling out a significant number of changes and new features. From changing up its app icon to keep things on the fresh side to rolling out a new stories feature that seemed to borrow heavily from another popular social media app, Instagram has been making a large number of tweaks and firing them out the door quickly. Today, the features list is growing once again with the addition of a small yet frequently requested feature: pinch-to-zoom on Android.
While Instagram announced the pinch-to-zoom functionality to its iOS app in August, its only now that the functionality reaches the Android base. Its worth noting that this new feature doesn’t apply just to pictures, however, as Instagram says that users can also pinch to zoom in on the videos that are in their feeds, hosted on profiles, or appear in the Explore tab.
From here, Instagram says it will continue to improve the “core parts” of the service, so it sounds like there are more updates on the way. We’ll keep an ear to the ground for any news on new features coming down the pipeline.
