5 new features of the redesigned Samsung camera app in the S7/edge Nougat update


The Android 7.0 Nougat update started rolling out to the international Galaxy S7 and S7 edge the other day, announced Samsung, and US carriers won't be far behind, it seems, pegging the AT&T versions for "early spring" Nougat tasting, for instance. Besides improved visuals and the under-the-hood Android 7.0 goods, Samsung is throwing in some brand new features, and even completely redesigned apps like the one used to command the phones' cameras. 

The new camera application is greatly simplified now, no more visual clutter, and is gesture-based, as is the modern trend with stock Nougat and the latest Android overlay versions from various manufacturers. It might be confusing at first what to do when you update your Galaxy S7 and S7 edge from Marshmallow to Nougat, that is why we have compiled for you some of the key changes in the camera app interface that arrive with Nougat, and how to use them.

Why wouldn't the S6 get the update?..... Samsung always updates their phones for two years.......nothing new here.

Blame the carriers, not Samsung. Unlocked phones always get the goodies first.

Yes, Samsung is a little of the blame, but the biggest part of the blame is the carriers. Att being the worst. But it really doesn't bother me att takes longer because I have never had any problems with att updates like other have had with other carriers pumping out the updates fast. My note 5 is running great on marshmallow so I am in no hurry.

Ill bet it'll stay on Marshmallow forever while your unlocked counterparts enjoy Nougat or even Android O. You're not getting your phone's worth. Luckily I dont live in in US or in countries where carriers are douches when it comes to service updates.

Well, most of these are improved features. Not new features.

Right. I can do this already: You can say “Smile”, “Cheese”, “Capture”, or “Shoot” to take a selfie.

How can I undo my system update? I don't like the camera function. In the previous, the timer can set differently for front and rear camera. But now it become a common setting for both. I normally use timer for front camera and not the rear camera. This so call simplified is useless!
