How do I use Google Messages’ pinch-to-zoom feature?

To make the Messages app more convenient, especially for users with weak eyesight, Google rolled out an update that added various features such as pinch to zoom, end-to-end encryption, and more. One notable feature is the ability to change the font size within the app by simply zooming in.

While this update was introduced earlier, many Google Messages users may need to be aware of it. However, we always strive to inform our audience of the latest tech developments. Therefore, we have studied and personally tested this brand-new pinch-to-zoom feature and can confirm that Google has done an excellent job with it. In this article, we will discuss everything about pinch-to-zoom quality.

  • Simply open the Google Play Store.
  • Search for Google Messages. Tap on the first result you see.
  • Now tap on the update button. Following this, your Google Messages app will update to its latest version. That’s it; you’re ready to use pinching to zoom in.

Now that you have updated your Google Messages app, you may be wondering how to use the updated feature. The concept is similar to how we usually view photos in our phone’s gallery app, but in case you need a guide, here are the steps:

Note: To enlarge the content, use the pinch-to-zoom gesture. To make the font smaller, use the tap-to-zoom-out motion.

  • Open the Google Messages app.
  • Look for any conversation and tap on it.
  • To enlarge the font, use the pinch-to-zoom gesture.
  • Now you can easily read the content with this simple gesture.

That’s it; you can now read any conversation in Google Messages more comfortably.

You can also get the same thing by downloading an APK file. I know downloading such an application from the Google Play Store is the usual first step, but this method is for those facing download errors. Therefore, we have arranged a direct APK for you to install the Google Messages app on your phone. Follow these steps to do so:

  • Download the Google Messages APK file here.
  • Wait for the download to finish.
  • Once it ends, go to your device settings and enable the installation of apps from unknown sources.
  • Install the downloaded APK file.
  • Following this, wait for it to be installed.
  • That’s it; you’re now in the Google Messages app.

Users may feel uncomfortable afterwards if they do not like the pinch-to-zoom feature. But it can easily be disabled. However, such an option was not available initially. But as the update progressed, developers tweaked it and added the “disable pinch-to-zoom” feature. For your convenience, you can follow these steps:

  • Open the Google Messages app.
  • Look for “Settings” and tap on it.
  • Under Settings, you will see a switch to toggle “pinch to zoom in conversation text.”
  • Tap on it to disable that feature.
  • That’s it; you’re done.

Besides that, Google Messages has also added end-to-end encryption, which encrypts the entire conversation. Currently, this feature is only available for one-way communication; group communication is not supported. So, with that set, we hope you all understand the pinch-to-zoom part, along with a download guide. Please ask any remaining questions below if any user still has one.
