Google blesses Camera app with selfie flash option

12 Agosto 2017

Also, the update would be available in selected regions. Pair great hardware with a barely usable camera app and you're phone is sure to get ignored. Since most smartphones don't have a flash built in to the front-facing shooter, Google Camera mitigates this by adding a manila-toned slab right as your selfie is taken, which is supposed to help produce a little extra light in dimmer settings. Before this existed, you had to use the zoom bar. That is, not all smartphones have an LED flash on their faces.

Users will have to tap on the flash icon to enable the selfie flash.

It's not perfect, mind you. An ex-Google exec even thinks Androids are years behind the iPhone when it comes to photography. Moreover, the feature also brings shortcut gestures, like double tap to zoom, swipe to toggle between taking photos and shooting videos. A single tap usually changes the focus to that area but if you tap twice in quick succession, the camera app will zoom up to 50% instantly.

The double tap to zoom features is coming to the Google Camera via a new update which should already be rolling out to users of the app. If you have a device which uses the Google Camera then you should be seeing the update live in the Play Store, and if it isn't showing up just yet it should be soon as it seems the update started hitting devices yesterday. If you're in a rush, however, you can always download the signed APK from APK Mirror and sideload it yourself.
