How to enlarge text on screen using Android’s Magnification option

While there are no apps available in the Play Store for enlarging the screen, Android itself has an inbuild Accessibility tool that helps to zoom in the screen when required and it can be very useful.

Step 1: Open the device’s Settings ([icon name=”cog” class=”” unprefixed_class=””]).

Step 2: Find Accessibility. For Android 9 and 10, the Accessibility menu should be under System settings. For other Android versions, check under Additional Settings.

Step 3: Under Display, tap on Magnification.

Step 4: There are two options. Magnify with triple-tap and Magnify with shortcut. Magnify with triple-tap is little easy considering Magnify with shortcut using gesture controls. So let’s go with Magnify with triple-tap now.

Step 5: Use the toggle button ‘[icon name=”toggle-on” class=”” unprefixed_class=””]’ to turn on the feature.

Step 6: Now, open WhatsApp, Facebook any other app which doesn’t let you zoom. Chrome lets you zoom normally using pinch in/out.

Step 7: Triple tap on the screen to start the magnifier.

Step 8: You can normally scroll up and down. But to scroll left or right, use two fingers to tap and hold on the screen and then scroll left or right. The same goes with zoom in or zoom out. Pinch two or more fingers or spread to zoom out/ zoom in further.


  • Magnification supports a maximum of 8x zoom.
  • When magnification is turned on, single taps take slightly longer. This short delay lets your device find out if your tap is part of a triple-tap.
  • If you open or close an app when zoomed in, Magnification will be closed automatically. To zoom in again, simply triple-tap.
