If you have updated your Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge to Android 7.0 Nougat, you might have noticed that Samsung has brought about a major change to the camera app's user interface. The buttons have been moved to different positions, and Samsung has also changed the way a few things work. Did you know that you can now switch between the front and rear cameras by swiping up or down on the screen?

There's still a dedicated button for doing so, but you will notice how switching between the two cameras becomes faster when you can simply swipe at any point on the screen. It's not just switching between the front and rear cameras that now works with a swipe: you can also swipe in from the left of the screen to change between different camera modes, or swipe in from the right to access photo filters. In fact, these two functions can only be accessed with a swipe, so don't forget this handy little tip the next time you're shooting pictures on your Nougat-powered Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge.

We will continue to get you up to speed with things we discover in Nougat, and if you have any doubts, don't forget to let us know in the comments section! For more Nougat tips, check out this page.
