What you need to know
- The new video pinch-to-zoom is hidden away in the app's code and not yet available.
- Pinch-to-zoom for videos would work much as it does for standard photos.
- The appearance of the new feature in the Google Photos code doesn't guarantee that the feature will actually be released.
The team over at XDA Developers noticed that in the most recent update for Google Photos, version 4.33, showed testing code for a potential pinch-to-zoom in for videos. Though the new feature is in a testing phase within the Photos app, that doesn't mean it will for sure make it to a public release.
A member of the XDA team was even able to manually access the feature to give a glimpse of how it might work. It seems that pinch-to-zoom in videos will work much as it does for a regular photo. This could come in handy for videos where you realize you may have been a little further away than you wanted after the moment has passed. Now, you'll be able to zoom in to watch what you intended.
Since this feature isn't official just yet, we'll have to wait for Google to let us know all of the ins and outs of how it will work.
