Photo and video messaging app Snapchat has rolled out a new update that enables users to zoom in via a camera without needing to lift the thumb off the capture button.

In previous versions, the only way to zoom in was to use two hands — one hand on the capture button and the other (with a pinch gesture) to zoom in, tech website Mashable.com reported on Tuesday.

But the new function is a bit easier – because it comes with a one-handed zoom feature that allows you to zoom in with a simple swipe of the finger from the recording button.

How to use it

  1. Tap and hold the large circular button at the bottom to start recording on Snapchat
  2. To zoom in, drag your finger up and away from the capture button while recording
  3. To zoom out move it down and closer to the recording button.
