New update brings front flash to Google Camera

There has been a lot of attention given to smartphone cameras these days but while the hardware does have major importance, the software can also help or mar the overall experience. So you can still use the old gesture too.

The "Google Camera" application named has been updated to feature a selfie flash which is usually missing from the front cameras of most smartphones, the media reported on Saturday.

It's not perfect, mind you.

Android users are often left wanting more when it comes to their phone's camera. It's not going to be bright enough to replace the real thing, but it's so much better than smiling at the dark. Now, when you go to take a photo with your front-facing camera, the phone's screen will fill with a bright manilla color to shine some light on your face. The latest version carries with it some lightweight, but somewhat useful, new additions, including the ability to double tap the display to zoom in, and a new toggle for switching between camera functions.

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. While the latest version is now available outside of Android O preview, it requires at least Android version 7.1. The usual security disclaimers apply.
