Snapchat’s latest update introduced a new way to send your friends news, but it also includes a long-awaited feature: the ability to zoom in while shooting video.
We’ve gotten used to being able to pinch to zoom in when filming video on our smartphones, and Snapchat now lets you do just that if you know the trick.
Next, open up Snapchat like you normally would and hold down the record button to start shooting a video. While continuing to record, simply drag another finger upward along the screen to zoom in. If you want to zoom out, just drag your finger downward.
That’s all there is to it!
