Google was Working on a New Lift Gesture to Launch the Camera on Pixel Phones
Google is really proud of the camera prowess on its Pixel smartphone lineup, and for good reason. The Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are receiving rave reviews from all over for the quality of the pictures these phones can take. Thus, it’s no surprise that Google would want to center many of their software features around the camera app. A few of the gestures available on the Pixel smartphones are aimed at making launching the camera faster, such as the double tap power gesture to launch the camera and double twisting your phone to switch between front and rear cameras.
