The Pixel 4 officially launches tomorrow, though many people have already received the phone a little early. Just in time for the official release, Google has published an update to its camera app, bringing it up to version 7.2. It adds back H.265 video to the Pixel 4 and improves the new Social Share feature by adding Slack as another option.
H.265/HEVC is a more efficient codec than H.264/AVC, so using it on the Pixel 4 will help you store more video files without using more space. Google warns that it may not be supported on all platforms or by all video players, though. The option has already been live in Google Camera 7.1 on older Pixels.
Left: Social Share in version 7.1 without Slack. Middle: Version 7.2 including Slack. Right: “Store videos efficiently” option should show up on the Pixel 4 now, too.
Along with the addition of Slack to Social Share, the app also respects system font size going forward, so when you head into its settings, you won’t be greeted by bigger or smaller text than in any of your other applications.
You can wait around until the update officially hits your Pixel, but you may also download it right now over at APK Mirror.
