Although Google Camera is primarily a Pixel Exclusive program, it has become the most popular camera app for many Android users. Not only does better-featured features such as Night Sight capture better photos than most standard camera apps, it's also packed with features that make it one-stop-shop for all your photo and video needs.
Many of these smaller features often go unnoticed. A good example is the ability to take a photo while recording a video.
To try this, you need to install the Google Camera port if you do not use a pixel, but the process is usually as simple as loading any other app. Check out the link below for more detailed instructions on how to do it.
If you successfully installed Google Camera and granted all necessary permissions, open the app and select "Video." Open the recorder and tap the record button to start recording. From there, press the small shutter-release button to the right of the Stop button to take a photo that will automatically be saved to the default Gallery app on your phone for later viewing.
Capturing photos while capturing video does not affect your recordings and your videos run smoothly when seen by others. The Google Camera Camera lets you take as many photos as you want to make sure you never miss out on a perfect moment.
