Google Camera update brings back a popular feature

Google Camera is getting a new update with a few small tweaks and the return of one big feature. Version 3.2.042 of the app recently hit the Play Store, though it’s only showing up for some devices at the moment.

The biggest change is the option to snap a photo while you’re already recording a video. This was available with earlier versions of Google Camera but vanished in an update. Now it’s back and looks pretty easy to use. If you’re recording a video, you’ll see a small circle appear near the top right corner. Just tap it to start snapping photos.

Google’s also made a few changes to the interface. The slow motion option has moved to the hamburger-style menu, which actually makes it a little more difficult to access. The shutter and swap camera buttons have been polished a bit as well for a nicer overall look.

The update should be rolling out to everyone pretty soon, but it’s apparently limited to Nexus devices for now. If you don’t feel like waiting, you can grab it through an APKMirror via the source link below.
