    Someone posted in another forum that a way to create an direct app icon to different camera modes (manual, cine video, etc) is to tap and hold the camera icon. After a few, icons for the different modes will appear in a list which can then be added to the home screen.

    Each time I try this, it either just opens the camera or just brings up the remove/delete app interface.

    Anyone else get this to work? If so, what am I missing?

    This has been answered. Apparently this is one of those helpful features that Verizon decided to disable on the V30. Why? No idea. I may call them and ask though. My gut feeling is that they sell an app that does something similar to this.

    Do you have a different launcher? I read that Action and possibly NOVA turn the feature back on.

    I have NOVA & the stock camera app on the V30. The different modes show up fine and work great.

    I just tried somethings using OK Google:

    'Open camera' opens automatic mode.
    'Open camera manual mode' opens the manual mode.

    Yeah!

    And I can use my Cheese Shutter word to make everything voice activated. That worked great for me the other day when I was riding my horse and was able to be safe & get a pix of a piebald deer.

    I have no clue why this inserted upside down. <sigh>

    I'm on T-Mobile using the stock / default launcher and I can press and hold and see the shortcuts.

    Maybe it really is a carrier issue?

    It most definitely is, especially since it works in different launchers on Verizon phones.
