Instagram finally introduced one of its most requested features on iOS just yesterday – the ability to zoom into a photo – and said that the feature would arrive on Android “in the coming weeks.” However, as noted by Android Police, it seems some users are already starting to see the functionality show up.
User Tim Bremer recorded the functionality on his Google+ account. A few commenters under Bremer’s post can also access the feature.
This appears to be a server side switch, so you won’t simply be able to download the latest version of Instagram to access the feature.
Though I’m not seeing the feature on my Android phone just yet, it seems that it may arrive sooner than originally anticipated. Next time you open up the Instagram on Android, try zooming in on a photo and let us know if it works for you.
