Well, it only took Instagram 6 years to roll out a zoom feature, but hey, they finally did it.


Something that should have been rolled out with its original launch is finally making its way to Instagram – the ability to pinch to zoom on pictures.

But before you go ahead and zoom your little heart out, the feature is only available for iOS users at the time.

Here’s the announcement from Instagram in, well, an Instagram post:

Starting today, you can pinch to zoom on photos and videos in feed, on profiles and on Explore. Dive into an adorable puppy’s smile or into every detail of your friend’s new shirt.

Over the past six months, you’ve seen many exciting changes come to Instagram, from a new icon to longer videos and even a new way to share everyday moments with Instagram Stories. And as things change, we’re still focused on improving the core parts of Instagram.

Zoom is available today for Instagram on iOS. Zoom will be available on Android in the coming weeks.

This is something a lot of users have asked for since Instagram launched, but now almost 6 years later, they’re finally doing it. Android users will just have to wait a bit longer.
