These new additions to “Super Zoom” provide creative, additional, and different ways to use the option in the Instagram Stories, as reported by the Social & Digital media consultant, Matt Navarra on his official Twitter account, a few hours ago.

Back in October 2017, Instagram and Facebook added new features for Halloween, Including ‘Super Zoom’, which has been added to enhance the users’ Instagram Stories and DMs. It was providing only the ‘dramatic close-up” zoom tool.

The new feature “Super Zoom” is already proving popular and successful in remaining in high circulation long after Halloween.

Since then, Instagram worked on testing several options in different ways, but this is the first time Instagram has listed a broad collection of them in the app, with each of them providing Instagrammers with a different effect.

On the other hand, These additions are not the only Instagram steps to improve the Instagram stories experience for all its users; In June, Instagram launched “@Mention sharing”,  a new feature that enables Instagrammers re-sharing stories, in addition, users will be able to reshare any photo or video in which they’ve been tagged and share it into their own story. Then, through the same month, they rolled out “Shopping Tags in Stories”, a new feature that enables businesses to add a sticker with a shopping bag icon to their product image in their Instagram Stories, to enable their customers to see more details about it. 

After that, in July, they added A new “music sticker”, which enables Instagrammers to add a soundtrack to their stories and choose the song which fits their story vibe.
