Instagram users dealing with ‘excessive zoom’ bug, here’s how to fix

Instagram users are stuck with an annoying ‘excessive zoom’ bug while recording stories. Numerous individuals on the Reddit forum reported that the application has randomly started causing zoom issues which makes it uneasy to record a video. But don’t worry as we have got the fix.

To begin with, a user said that the latest version of Instagram abruptly broke the zoom feature on iPhone, while recording stories. Whenever he tried to hold the recording button and slide it up, it immediately goes up to 2x zoom.

Meanwhile, it restricts zooming out instantly. There are no such inputs from Android users on this matter. Perhaps, the issue is appearing for iOS devices, particularly those running on the iOS 17 and 17 beta builds.
