Update for Google Camera brings interface improvements, a beloved feature returns

Google's own Camera is definitely not the best camera app around, but it still gets the job done. That's why each time a new feature hits it up, we are mostly grateful that the gods from Google have smiled upon us. The app just got updated to v3.2.042 and scored a couple of new and returning features that will likely make your camera-snapping experience a bit better.

So, what does the changelog of the new Google Camera reveal? Well, the most intriguing new feature is actually a returning old one - you can now once again take pictures while recording video. This undoubtedly handy feature got ditched with a previous update to the app. In the newest version, there's a circular button that appears in the top right corner of the app while one you're recording a video. 


Additionally, the interface has been changed up a bit. Slow motion is now a menu item in the hamburger menu of Google Camera, and not an easily-accessible button in video mode. A bit user-unfriendly, if you ask us. 

Last, but not least, the iconography of the shutter and cameras swap buttons have been improved a bit and are now a bit sleeker in appearance, which is a minor and welcome change.

You can get the new version by sideloading it from the source link if you're not keen on waiting it to hit your device.

Potentially Pretty offensive to some people and all for what ? To try add humour to an article on a button refresh

Offensive in what way? 3rd definition of god on google is "a greatly admired or influential person". I hate this current overly PC society sometimes
