Hooray for zooming in on cute cats!

My fellow Instagrammers, let us take a collective moment to celebrate that as of today, Aug. 31, you can now zoom in on Instagram pictures, videos, stories—everything. We’ve been waiting forever for this moment to happen, and all I can say is, HALLELUJAH ????.

The company announced the news in (what else?) an Instagram post this morning, telling users they can now “dive into an adorable puppy’s smile or into every detail of your friend’s new shirt.” And brunch! And your crush’s new hat! And Harry Styles’ hair! And cats! Definitely cats.

You don’t even have to Install an update or anything. All you do is log into Instagram and start zooming away! Just as you would zoom in on something in your camera roll or on Facebook or Twitter, just pinch your fingers over the screen and move them apart to get where you wanna go. Voila!


Obvi, everyone is very excited about this big change for Insta.

Now excuse me while I go zoom in that Calvin Harris underwear pic. ????
