Ahead of the Halloween weekend, Instagram rolled out a range of new features for its users. The photo and video sharing networking platform introduced a Superzoom feature allows users to add a creative twist to their regular posts. The feature essentially allows one to zoom in on one object and attach dramatic music for added effect while recording a video.
When a user opens the camera, the “Superzoom” option will appear next to “Boomerang” under the record button.
Tap “Superzoom” and then tap record to automatically zoom in with suspenseful music. You can make a Superzoom of anything and send your video to your friends on Instagram Direct or add it to your story.
Along with this, Instagram also unveiled a host of new Halloween-themed face filters and stickers, available through November 1, through which one can turn into a zombie, transform from a vampire into a flying bat or get lost in a mysterious fog, thus adding on to the festivities.
Earlier in the week, Instagram introduced ‘live broadcast with a friend’ feature, which will help one share new updates through videos in an authentic way.
These updates are available as part of Instagram version 20.0 for iOS in the Apple App Store and for Android in Google Play.
