Pinch-to-zoom has existed in photo-centric apps for years. However, not in Instagram. Yes, perhaps the most popular photo sharing community that has ever existed does not have support for zooming in on photos, but that won’t be the case for much longer. Pinch-to-zoom is coming to Android soon, and according to AnroidPolice some of you might already have it.
According to Instagram’s announcement post, zooming is available today in the iOS app and it will be available on Android in a few weeks. However, some users already have it.
This is a server side switch, so even installing the latest beta build from APK Mirrorwon’t magically enable it. You’ll just have to wait for Instagram to find you worthy. You can get a feel for the way the feature will work right here.
