Instagram Will Now Let You Zoom Into Your Favorite Buildings

Instagram Will Now Let You Zoom Into Your Favorite Buildings

A feature Instagram users have spent years longing for is finally here: Zoom. Just released today, the update to the iOS app finally will allow you to pinch to zoom in on photos and videos, just like you can in most photo viewing apps (no more screenshotting necessary!). This means you can now get a closer look at the architectural details of your favorite buildings on Instagram, from doorways to moldings to joints. Though be warned, just because you can make it bigger doesn’t mean it will necessarily be clearer - Instagram still will only support images 1080 pixels wide.

See it in action after the break.

For now, zoom is only supported on iPhones, but Instagram is expected to roll out the feature for Android phones in the coming weeks.
