On Android there are countless camera apps, although there is something many of them agree on: To record a video, you must first switch to video mode. This is how the Google Camera also worked, although the latest version gives you another alternative.

Google Camera 8.2 adds a new way to record video that will be more intuitive and faster to record videos: with a long press on the shutter, similar to how recording works in apps like Instagram.

Press to record

While in applications such as Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook, WhatsApp and the like, taking photos and recording videos is done with a single button, in the vast majority of camera apps there is a photo mode and a video mode. Holding the shutter button frequently does nothing but take a photo when you release it or take a burst of photos.

This is how Google’s camera app, amicably known as Gcam, also works. And so it continues to work, but now with a new alternative: now you can also hold down the shutter button to start movie recording. For greater comfort, after starting the recording you can slide towards the padlock so as not to have to leave the button pressed, as happens with audio recordings on whatsapp. You can see it in action at this XDA video:

This small but useful novelty comes with Google Camera version 8.2, which should reach compatible mobiles through Google Play soon, in addition to being available in APKMirror. If you use a GCam MOD for other models, you will have to wait for is available a modified version of GCam 8.2.
