    Finally – the news we’ve all been waiting for. Instagram are now introducing a feature to let you zoom in on photos and videos.

    Simply pinch the picture on your feed and you can zoom in to see the image up close and personal in all its glory.

    Available today on Instagram for iOS, Android users will have to wait a couple of weeks until they can join the zooming party.

    Just think, no more frustration when you’re desperately trying to work out whether or not your mate from school really is on holiday with Sarah from HR. Or whether your ex is still wearing that watch you gave him for your three year anniversary. The possibilities are endless! (Not that it’s only going to be useful for social media stalking, but still…)

    Zoom was one of the most requested features amongst Instagram’s 500 million strong community, so there are going to be a lot of happy people out there now that the social media platform have announced that it’s finally coming into play.

    Including us. We can wait to give it a go on some of the most liked Instagram photos of all time.
