Google has updated the camera app for Android users and added a range of new features, including the ability to alter the aspect ratio of photos taken.

Additional features, or more accurately, a return of some old ones is the ability to take a photo while also filming a video, and the return of the timer that gives users options of a 3 or 10 second delay.

The app also now includes two aspect ratios, of 16:9 (widescreen) and 4:3, which match the ratios used on most films and televisions.

They also added a couple more panorama photo modes to the post-processing options.

And finally, in an undefined way, they added that users can now take "landscape scenes with your left-hand", as that was seemingly difficult in the past?
