Microsoft just released the new build 14951 for Windows 10 Insiders on the Fast Ring. Although the new build doesn’t introduce any new features to the system, it updates some of the existing apps.

One of the updated apps in Windows 10 Preview build 14951 is the Camera app which received a lot of improvements and changes. The main highlight of the update is Live Images. This feature allows you to capture video snippets instead of regular images whenever your shot features motion.

This feature will surely add a new dimension to picture taking on Windows 10 devices. For now, it is available for the Surface Book, Surface Pro 4, Surface Pro 3 and Surface 3, but we hope it’ll arrive on other Windows 10 devices as well. To turn this feature on, just go to Settings in your Camera app and turn on Live Images.

Besides Live Images, the new update also introduces other improvements to the app like a new user interface, a photo timer, better zoom, and more. Here’s the complete list of features of the Camera app for Windows 10:

  • Enjoy taking photos, videos, and panoramas with our higher-contrast capture buttons.

  • Set a photo timer right from the camera dashboard with our new toggle control.

  • Get to Settings faster! Now, launch into Settings directly from the camera UI.

  • Access your camera roll with one hand from its new spot on the screen.

  • Zoom more easily with the new zoom slider.

  • Make sure you nailed the shot, with a more noticeable capture animation.

  • Change between front- and rear-facing cameras with a more prominent button control.

  • On PC, use the spacebar as a shortcut to take pictures.

Unlike the Windows Touchpad and Inking improvements that were also introduced with Windows 10 Preview build 14951, the new update for the Camera app is available on both PC and Mobile. However, you need to be running at least Preview build 14951 to be able to use these features as they’ll probably arrive for regular users with the Redstone 2 update.
