"Just in time for Halloween, you'll see some new creative tools to help you turn any moment into something fun and entertaining," the company has said it its blog post. As the photo-sharing app has released new tools users can now get creative and post interesting content in their Instagram feed in the next few days.

Talking about the feature, Superzoom is like Boomerang, but this new feature will automatically apply zoom via the smartphone's camera to record up and close photo or video. Further, the Superzoom feature will allow users to get more creative as they will be able to add dramatic music or sound effects while zooming-in their photo or video.

How to Use the Superzoom Feature?

Open the Instagram app and then swipe right as you normally do to add stories. Then under the camera shutter button, there are options like Live, Boomerang, Normal and so on. Now there is an option called Superzoom. So users have to tap on that. Once selected, users can tap record to automatically zoom in with suspenseful music. Users can make a Superzoom of anything - their selfie, their friend's goofy face or anything. Once it is done users can send their video to their friends on Instagram Direct or add it to their own story.

The feature has started rolling out for Android and iOS users.

"Whether you're planning spooky activities with friends or just hanging out at home, get into the Halloween spirit by turning yourself into a zombie, transforming from a vampire into a flying bat or getting lost in a mysterious fog. You can also add Halloween stickers to your photos and videos as a final touch," said Instagram.

All in all, as Instagram has been adding new features in its platform it basically wants to offer good user experience to its users as well make it more enjoyable.
