Please excuse us while we Zoom our way to happiness

There's no denying that we're all guilty of a little cyber stalking. But thanks to Instagram's new update, we're about to take it to the next level.

If you're a self-confessed #InstaAddict, be prepared because things are about to get quite real. The app has announced that 'Zoom' is your new best friend. That's right, you can now take a closer look at those your ex's new girlfriend shoes.

Simply use two fingers to pinch and zoom on the photos and videos in your feed! Just between us, you'll no longer have to do the sneaky screen shot to take a good look.

The update is currently available for iOS lovers but if you're on Android, you'll have to be patient because there is an update in the works.

Thankfully, Instagram has been listening to the needs of their people. Though for the next update we'd like see hyperlinked URLs so we easily navigate or shop the pictures we adore.

But for today, we're praising them for all things #zoom!

Are you as excited as we are?
