Every month, more than a billion people use Google Maps around the world, according to Google.

Despite its popularity, many users are still only aware of a small fraction of the features of Google Maps.

One of these features includes zooming with just one finger.

Normally, most people use the two-finger pinch method to zoom in and out on Google Maps, but that can be frustrating (and even dangerous) if you’re doing something like cycling. or walk the dog.

It is during those times that the one-finger zoom can be especially useful in navigating the streets.

The hack has been around for a while – it even went public in 2013 for a 10 seconds long video on YouTube It has since amassed over 100,000 views – however, many users remain unaware of its existence.

This is how you can access the tool easily.

How to zoom in on Google Maps with one hand

The trick is super simple: First, you have to open your Google Maps app.

Then simply double-tap the map screen with one finger and drag it vertically without lifting your finger off the screen.

Once you do that, the zoom slide effect will come into play.

If you move your finger up, the map zooms in, and if you move your finger down, the map zooms out.

Not only does this method provide greater range than the pinch method, but it is often more accurate.

It’s important to note that the zoom effect will happen from the center of the screen, not where your finger has touched.
