First up, the new version lets you set a timer (tap the menu button and then the clock icon) so you can take photos with either a three-second or a 10-second delay. It also lets you take pictures while shooting video. It’s worth noting that both these feature were available before and were only added back recently.

Google also notes you can now “capture landscape scenes with your left-hand” as well as choose between 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios (the former option is new). Finally, there are two new creative Panorama picture modes: wide angle and fisheye.
