Google Camera v4.4 rolling out for Pixel, Nexus, Android One devices: Lots of improvements
Google has just released the latest version of Google Camera, namely version 4.4, to the Play Store meaning that all users of compliant Pixel, Nexus, and Android One devices should be receiving the update shortly. The latest update to the app for all users boasts the novelties that were introduced alongside Dev Preview 3 of the Android O beta.
After the new update, you will be able to switch between video and still image modes more easily than before – instead of swiping up or down on viewfinder, update 4.4 adds a button beside the shutter button that lets you easily start recording a video.
Aside from this rather noteworthy change, Camera 4.4 introduces a nifty double-tap to zoom gesture that works in either still image and video mode and zooms 50% in. Tapping twice one more time zooms out to the default field of view. Is this new feature low-key hinting that Google is prepping the interface of the app for future dual-cameras setups? Well, sure looks like it!
There's also a selfie flash for all the avid Instagrammers out there. Finally, update 4.4 for Google Camera also transform the front and rear camera switcher button into a way more simplistic affair. As we are avid connoisseurs for all things minimalistic, we dig the change. What about you?
