Google Camera version 4.4 update adds double-tap to zoom, new buttons (updated)

Also worth noting is that this update only seems to be showing up for those who have Nexus, Pixel, or Android One phones, so if you fit into that category then you may want to keep an eye on the Play Store My Apps section or your status bar if you have update alerts set up.

As noted by Google, the latest version is created to work on recent Nexus and Pixel devices running Android 7.1.1 and above, The Verge reported.

To use the feature, users can tap on the flash icon while the front-facing camera is in use and select "automatic" or "on". If the feature is active, users can see the lower third of the screen covered by a block of beige.

Those that like to zoom in while taking a photo will appreciate the newly added double tap to zoom feature that will ramp up the zoom by 50% in an instant.

Google Camera version 4.4 brings an improved toggle switch for engaging video and photo mode.

Update 11:02 ET: In our original coverage of the latest Google Camera update we mentioned that the selfie-flash feature is new to Google Camera v4.4.
