As of late this evening, 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. So far, we’ve only confirmed the update to have arrived on a Pixel 5, but owners of the Pixel 4a 5G, Pixel 4a, and more hopefully shouldn’t have too long to wait.

The biggest change we’ve discovered in Google Camera 8.2 is a major revamp to taking videos by pressing and holding the shutter button. In previous versions, this long-press simply started a video recording, but with the latest update, you can now slide your finger in one direction to control zoom or slide it a different way to “lock” the recording. Once you’ve locked the recording, you can release your finger and the video will continue to record until you press stop.
