Starting today, Instagram will be rolling out long sought-after support for pinch-to-zoom on its iOS app. This will allow users to zoom in on both photos and videos in their feed, on others’ profiles, and in Instagram’s Explore section.
Unfortunately, this update will only be confined to iOS users. Fortunately, for Android the feature is set to release “in the coming weeks,” but there are no plans to bring the update to mobile web users.
Pinch-to-zoom has been a sought-after feature for a long time, with increasing quality of pictures and Instagram’s support of landscape and profile pictures. The update is sure to be welcomed by Instagram users worldwide.
