The third Developer Preview Android O delivers improvements for app makers and a bunch of adjustments users. But there is more hidden in this android update. Thus Camera Google Android O gets some minor improvements for added convenience. Specifically, switching between video and photos easier and zoom in with one finger possible.
Now if you want to redeem Google Camera between video and photo, then swipe left or right. This can be confusing for users. Therefore, Google is changing a bit clearer in Android O. If you’re in photo mode, there is the right of the record button a camera icon. Tap it, then the camera switches to video mode. Once you’re in video mode is left of the Record a picture icon, which will take you back to the photo mode. Swipe left or right is also still possible.
Another improvement is the way you zoom. Until now you had to use two fingers to get something far closer. Android O is tapping twice on the screen enough. Tapping twice, because the image automatically zooms fifty percent. Tapping again twice, cancel the zoom again. Once you are zoomed in, then there is a bottom of the screen slider to adjust the strength of the zoom. This means that the zoom is fully controlled with one finger.
Android O is now also known as Android 8.0. This update is available later this year for Nexus and pixel devices and then slowly rolling out to smartphones from other manufacturers.
