Why Won’t Snapchat Zoom on an iPhone 4s?

If you want to get more Snapchat views and followers check out my Snapchat eBook.

So, over the last several days many Snapchat users have contacted me to let me know that zoom no longer works on photos or videos with the newest May 2015 update. I am able to pinch to zoom with my iPhone 5s before recording a video and while recording a video. I would imagine that the iPhone 4s is struggling because the Snapchat team worked with the modern iPhones such as the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus.

If you have an iPhone 4 or iPhone 4s are you having trouble zooming on Snapchat? I would love to know. Please feel free to comment below if you are having this issue. Also, feel free to add me on Snapchat with the following QR Code or the Snapchat name jessewojdylo and maybe I can help you figure it out. I have been overwhelmed with Snapchat texts lately but I will do my best.

I am positive Snapchat will be aware of this very quickly. I have not seen or heard of any problems with the Android versions of Snapchat but it would not surprise me if there are some zoom issues there as well. As soon as there is another Snapchat update to improve the zoom feature I will be sure to let you know.

Yea I have an iPhone 4s and can zoom on pictures, but not on videos. I used to not get filters, but I deleted the app and when I redownloaded it, they were there. I still can’t zoom on videos though, It is very fraustrating.
