Instagram Working On Ability to Pinch to Zoom on Stories

Using the pinch gesture to zoom in on Instagram stories will make it simpler to see fine print and inspect finer elements in people’s posts. Alessandro Paluzzi, a mobile developer, and reverse engineer, found code that allows users to zoom into their Instagram stories.

A video he posted on his Twitter profile showed that he had successfully implemented the new feature. Instagram feed photographs have always been viewable using a zoom function. A much-appreciated upgrade would be the ability to pinch to zoom within stories.


Why is it helpful to zoom in on Instagram stories?

This is not your fault, but rather a general problem with stories written by some people. People who have too much time on their hands share sophisticated opinions, fitness instructors publish weekly training plans, and foodies submit lengthy recipes—all on the same screen, in extremely small language that is very difficult to understand.

Extra text in a single narrative isn’t the only issue here. Some individuals just post photos and videos to their stories, but I still have to zoom in to see finer details because of Instagram’s high compression.

When will Meta release this feature?

To be honest, this seems like a function that Instagram should have included from the get-go. For instance, the Signal app’s Stories feature has always allowed for zooming in and out. When exactly Instagram will introduce this function is unknown. Given that zoom-in on Instagram Stories appears to be in testing right now, we shouldn’t have to wait too long.

Some social media users have come forward in recent days to admit they have been experimenting with this feature. But be assured, we will let you know as soon as Meta rolls out the Instagram stories zoom functionality to all users of the app.
