Allow / implement pinch to zoom on images [Android/iOS]

When receiving an image you can only look at it at a single scaling and not zoom in (read: pinch to zoom).
Yes, downloading an image and using the phone’s own image viewer is possible, but not really lightweight.

Hi @frittentheke

Thank you for your suggestion!

We’re currently working on a react native app for iOS and Android which might include the feature you’ve suggested. It’s a work in progress at the moment and we’d love to have your help testing.

If you’d like to help, here are the testing instructions. If you’re not able to help test, perhaps you’d like to open a feature suggestion on our UserVoice forum. Here, you and other people can up-vote the suggestion so it gains popularity.

Let me know if you have any questions!


PS: We’re also planning on adding this functionality to mobile web.

I signed up for the BETA on Android but am missing the option sign “Sign In with GitLab” (… is that not implemented yet ?

Hi @frittentheke

No, GitLab SSO is not yet available in the new react native Android app. It’s a work in progress with weekly updates.

Perhaps you’d like to sign up to the Mattermost Contributors Team where you can join the Native Mobile Apps Channel and keep updated with developments?
