Instagram Users Can Now slide to zoom, double-tap to switch camera in video mode.

Finally, Instagram decided to pick up the bar by adding two new amazing features to the camera button. Some would say the new features is alot similar to that of Snapchat's, but Instagram managed to scoop it and add a little difference.

Unlike snapchat's, the user have to hold and press the camera button to record a video.
