Google Camera update brings interface tweaks, dedicated slow motion video mode

A fresh update is now rolling out to the Google Camera app, bringing along a slew of interface tweaks and more. Of note are some interesting icon tweaks, with the shutter button losing its blue accent and the camera switcher changing to a circular design. Eagle-eyed users will also spot some slick new animations.

Meanwhile, there's also now an option to launch directly into a dedicated slow motion video mode (on the Nexus 5X and 6P) in the slide-out camera menu, with a quick toggle to choose between recording speeds on the Nexus 6P. Previously, slow motion video capture was an option in the main video recording interface.

The Camera update is rolling out now, and we've so far seen it land for two of our Nexus 6Ps. As with all Google app rollouts, however, this one could take a while to land for everyone. In the meantime, here's a quick look at just some of the changes in action.
