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