Finally, finally, instagram now allows users zoom in on photos and videos.
While the picture sharing app has been more of sharing moments rather than a purely technical appreciation of photography, an important change has been brought to the table.
Instagram, via it’s twitter page, has announced that it is bringing ZOOM to instagram on iOS.
Today we’re bringing ZOOM to Instagram on iOS! Pinch to zoom on photos & videos in feed, on profiles and on Explore pic.twitter.com/j1g4JQozK2

As you can clearly see on the official message above, the feature is currently only available to iOS users.
Google’s Android users may have to wait a little longer before the feature is brought on board.
If using iOS, to zoom in on photos on Instagram, simply pinch. This can basically be done on profile pictures, explore images, and feed images / videos.
