Zoom in on Anything with Magnification Gestures!
There's an easy way to magnify almost anything on your Android screen. Follow these simple steps and you will be viewing content far more clearly in no time
Magnification gestures is a zoom feature available on Android devices, and it can transform your phone into a stellar digital magnifier. However, because the magnification tool is turned off by default, many users aren’t even aware that this helpful feature exists. Once magnification gestures is enabled, three taps on your screen will allow you to zoom in on almost anything in your Android arsenal. Whether you’re viewing photo albums, reading news articles, or playing games, the great thing about magnification gestures is that it works with any app. Here is a step-by-step guide to make the most of this incredibly useful feature:
How to enable the feature
- To turn on magnification gestures, go to the Settings icon and select Accessibility from the dropdown menu.
- Select Magnification Gestures in the Accessibility menu.
- Tap the toggle to turn on magnification gestures. (The feature is set to off by default). You will see instructions explaining how it works.
How to zoom in and out
- Once you have enabled magnification gestures, tap your screen three times to zoom in and out. After zooming in, drag two or more fingers across the screen to pan.
- Pinch two fingers together or spread them apart to adjust the zoom level.
- If you want to get back to your normal screen, triple tap again.
For a temporary zoom, triple tap and hold your finger down. (Do not lift your finger off the screen after the third tap). Drag your finger to navigate around the screen. Once you take your finger off the screen, it will return to its original size.
It’s important to note that magnification gestures can zoom in on almost anything on your Android device, but there are two exceptions: it won’t work on your keyboard or the navigation bar.
