Instagram New “SuperZoom” feature. How to use on Android and iOS??

Instagram’s new Superzoom feature is the best creative tool since the Boomerang

Superzoom, which is rolling out on Android and iOS, lets you create a Dramatic Chipmunk-style zoom with a single tap.

Highlight the tool in the story camera, choose the front- or rear-facing camera, and then tap the button.

If you tap once you’ll create a 3-second Superzoom; you can tap and hold to create a longer one. All Superzooms include dramatic music to heighten the effect.superzoom for Instagram

Use Instagram Superzoom Feature on Android or iOS

Note: I tried the feature on Instagram v (stable) on my Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 running Android 6.0 and it worked perfectly. The feature is also available for iOS devices.

If you’re in the mood for some fun and want to make your friends laugh at stuttering zoom videos, here are the steps you need to follow to make a Superzoom video and share it with your friends:

1. Open the Instagram app and tap the “Camera” icon at the top left. Under the shutter button, you can now swipe the recording options available at the bottom to find the new “Superzoom” feature sitting between the Boomerang and Rewind.


2. Now, you need to tap the circular “shutter” button to automatically record a 3-second Superzoom video to post to your Instagram story. You can, however, hold down the shutter button to record a 15-second Superzoom with an extended and slow final zoom on the object.

3. You can now select between two options, either share the Superzoom video with your followers by adding it to your Story or send it as a Direct Message to your friends. You’re also free to save the same to upload it elsewhere, maybe as a GIF.

While it is welcoming to see Instagram debut a new creative format, you can also still create zooming videos without the Superzoom feature. All you need to do is hold down the shutter button and drag your finger, in a vertical motion, across the screen to zoom. This video will be zoomed in but the stutter effect and suspenseful music may be missing from it.
