You Can Now Zoom In On Instagram

This just in, Mom’s everywhere are losing their shit because they can finally ZOOM IN ON INSTAGRAM!

As of August 31, 2016 you can no longer yell at your mom for trying to zoom in on Instagram because now it’s a thing! You can even zoom in on videos.

The update has been rolled out on iOS and Instagram plans on rolling it out to Android users in the “coming weeks”. Aka if you use an Android you’re irrelevant and we’ll get to you later. Also, the font got a lot smaller. Not sure why but ok?

Zoom In On Instagram

What you need to know:

  • Instagram calls it pinch-to-zoom.
  • Pinch to zoom… literally.
  • Available all on all posts in your feed and even the explore page.
  • If you haven’t figured out how to do it, just watch this 9 second video from PetaPixel.


After years of mom’s everywhere pissing off their pre-teens, Instagram has finally answered their prayers.

Enjoy taking your creeping on IG to a new level.
