Android, as well as iOS apps, receive updates at regular intervals. Most of these updates are for bettering the app in terms of internet usage, UI, etc. However, sometimes, they roll out a feature which isn’t good or even roll back some feature(s).
In this case, Instagram rolled back Superzoom feature. In this feature, while recording a video, it will automatically zoom twice with a dramatic background score. I was very fond of the update. The feature was available in the Instagram Story section along with LIVE, Boomerang, Rewind and Hands-Free features respectively.
This feature was rolled out some days back. Not only me, some of my favorite YouTubers were going crazy with this update.
I got the notification of updating 7 apps today morning from Play Store. I prefer keeping the apps updated because 2 prime reasons. Firstly, if there is a new feature out there, I need to try it out. I am a beta tester for many apps. Secondly, the updates make these apps even better in terms of features as well as the UI. It’s best to stay updated!
The version that my Instagram is currently running is 188.8.131.52.135. Are you happy with the update? Let me know in the comments below.
