The Google Play Store has begun rolling out version 8.2 of the Camera app, a slight bump from the previous 8.1 release, to Pixel owners.

The update have arrived on a Pixel 5, but owners of the Pixel 4a 5G, Pixel 4a.

In Google Camera 8.2.204, the user can start recording a video, leaving his hands free, with a few swipes on the screen.

The feature builds on a quick capture setting that was originally introduced in Google Camera 7.1 alongside the Pixel 4’s release.

In the latest version of the application, one can slide finger to the left to launch the hands-free mode; which will allow users to continue shooting without holding finger on the button. One can also zoom in or out by moving finger up or down.
