Last month Google released a new Camera app for Android and while we enjoy most of its new bells and whistles, the price of progress came at the expense of a beloved feature. Absent from Mountain View’s new photo taking software was the ability to snap a picture while recording a video. Today, however, the search giant has made amends in the form of an update for its camera app that brings back this highly requested feature.

An update with today’s date is listed in Google Play, but its changelog has yet to be added. The folks at Android Police have already dissected the app and the returning photo feature is all they’ve found so far, but there could possibly be a few minor performance tweaks lurking in this new release.
