New update to Google's Camera app brings Selfie Flash

Himanshu, 12 August 2017

Google has pushed out a new update to its Camera app that bumps the version to 4.4. Among the key changes the update brings along, is the Selfie Flash feature that's aimed at improving your low-light selfies.

To access the functionality while taking a selfie, just make sure the Flash option is set to automatic or on. That's it. Now when you capture the image, the app will produce a little extra light, simulating flash.

It's worth mentioning that you may observe a yellowish-brown color light covering the entire screen after you tab the click icon and before your captured image shows up.

Aside from this feature, there are some other changes included as well, like double tap to zoom, and swipe to toggle between capturing video and still images. Oh, and keep in mind that only those with Pixels and Nexuses running Android 7.1.1 (and up) will be able to use these new features.
