There comes a moment when you're making a recording where you wish you could zoom in. Well, you can, and now Snapchat has made that something that only requires one hand.

While you're making a video, slide your finger up from the record button. Boom, you're zooming. No need to pinch.

The question is, should you? This is digital zoom we're talking about, and the answer is no (unless you own a ZenFone Zoom). As you can see from the cropped image above, digital zoom leads to a pixelated mess.

On the other hand, this is Snapchat. What you record won't last long. I guess that means you're free to zoom all you want.

What's New:

  • One-handed zoom — just drag your finger up and away from the capture button while recording!
