Instagram adds new Superzoom camera tool and Halloween themed filters

Just in time for Halloween, Facebook owned popular photo sharing platform Instagram has added new creative tools, so that you can share spooky contents with your friends. These include a new camera format called "Superzoom" and Halloween-inspired face filters and stickers.

Superzoom is an easy way to record funny video with dramatic zooming effect with sounds. To use this tool, open the camera, and you'll see "Superzoom" option next to "Boomerang" under the record button. Tap Superzoom followed by record to automatically zoom in and record with suspenseful music. 

You can make Superzoom of of anything -- "your selfie, your friend's goofy face or even your half-eaten sandwich". The video can also be sent to your friends on Instagram direct or added to your story.

The Halloween face filters and stickers in the camera will be available through November 1. So you can get into the Halloween spirit by turning yourself into a zombie, transforming from a vampire into a fly bat or getting lost in the mysterious fog and more. You can also add Halloween stickers to your photos and videos as final touch.

These updates are available as part of Instagram version 20.0 for iOS in the Apple App Store and for Android in Google Play.
