You Can Finally Zoom On Instagram

A new Instagram update lets users pinch and zoom in on images and videos.

It's the moment that we've all been waiting for; Instagram users can finally zoom in on Instagram posts.

The photo sharing app took to Instagram (where else) to share the news "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."

In addition to zooming in on photos and videos in your feed, you'll also be able to use Instagram's new functionality whilst browsing friend's profiles and on the Explore page.

With great power comes great responsibility though - so be careful not to like your best friend's brother's girlfriend's dog that next time that you're Insta-stalking.

Despite waiting nearly five years for Zoom to become a reality. It's currently only available on iOS, which means Android users will have to wait a little longer to get up close and personal with their favourite pics.
