Google Camera’s new update brings a lot of new features to the table. It includes a new option to almost instantly toggle between Resolutions, ability to record at 8X zoom.
Google Camera users might know already know that the app lacks the option to quickly toggle the resolution. In older versions, users are required to go to the Camera settings and then change the resolution from there. But with the new update, things are made simple and easy. To change the resolution, all you have to do is just swipe down on the video tab, and a new option called ‘Resolution’ will appear on the quick access menu.
With Google Camera 7.4, Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL users will get the option to record videos at 8X zoom. Previously, the camera would only support up to 6X by default.
As per reports by XDA, there are also chances that Google is cooking the same app for midrange Google Pixel 4a and upcoming Pixel 5 as well.
The New Super Res Zoom algorithm makes things even better by introducing the 8X zoom option to capture photos. Do note that the phone only comes with a 2X telephoto camera and then the algorithm does the magic. It also helps to reduce the quality loss to attain a much better image with the 8X zooming done.
With the quick toggle to select the resolution, you can select video resolution between Full HD 1080p and 4K ultra-high-resolution. In Full HD mode, you also get the option to select frames per second but not in the 4K mode. The camera app comes with default 4K @ 30fps. Higher framerates might be made available in the upcoming update.
As of now, the new update is only available for Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL users. If you are someone who is using the modded version of Google Camera then you might want to wait for some time for the developers to port things for your devices.
