    Was reading some recent reviews of the camera app in the Play Store and some folks were giving it one star, claiming the zoom slider had been removed?!? Is this true? I have the 8.1 update available but I'm not doing it if this slider removal is true.

    It hasn't been removed but now there is a convenient one tap button as well to select 1X or 2X right away

    Also if you pinch to zoom your one tap buttons will turn into a slider. I haven't noticed any slow down opening the app, yet.

    Well, hey, thanks for the info. I never thought of pinching to get a slider. Although, I do love the fact that the zoom button has only one option now. Zooming in with the slider before was kind of annoying to me.

    The update finally arrived to my Pixel 4a. It seems to lack some of the features I've seen in reviews of the Pixel 5. I'll play with it more.
    Update: I did find the features I was looking for. Those are very specific to what the camera is taking a picture of.

    I read about it just like the two of you did, but for my Pixel 3 XL at home, it still hasn't received any updates. I just upgraded to the Pixel 5 which has all the updates of course.
    You need to update Google play services and then go to the play store and u should be able to get the update

    I have version 8.1.011.342784911. Not sure when it was updatef since I have auto update set But just looked due to this thread. And hardly ever use the camera, but just looking that 2x button push is nice (or was that there before?). Guess I should use it more.
