Motorola Camera Now Lets Users Take Photos Using The Volume Key


Motorola is currently in the process of pushing out a largely-requested update via Google Play for the official Moto X, Moto G, Droid Maxx, Droid Ultra and Droid Mini camera applications. This upgrade brings users the ability to take photos by simply pressing the built-in hardware volume rocker, in addition to a handful of speed enhancements and bug fixes.

The Moto X’s camera was, without a doubt, one of the handsets weakest features at launch back in August, 2013 but over the course of the past few months several over-the-air updates have been rolled out to the device, which have greatly improved the performance of the 10-megapixel rear-facing shooter, and it certainly looks like Motorola isn’t planning to stop trying to improve the camera anytime soon.

The full changelog for the update can be seen below:

  • Capture photos using phone or headset volume key
  • Updated application will be compatible with Android™ 4.4.2, KitKat®
  • Bug Fixes
  • Speed Enhancements
