Taking photos with Google's new camera app is now better thank to the added option of changing the resolution to 16:9 aspect ratio. Google Camera already lets users change the resolution on their smartphone, but the app didn't clearly distinguish betwen sensor size. The latest version of the app makes it clear that when someone selects 8-megapixels for the camera resolution, they are choosing a 4:3 aspect ratio. Should someone want a wider image area to be captured, the user can set the phone to 6-megapixels to get a 16:9 ratio (maximum size and ratio options differ by device).

Google has also added the ability to take timed photographs. In the event that someone wishes to take a 3 or 10-second delay for photos, just follow these steps:

1. Tap the Menu button (three dots) in the corner
2. Tap the Clock icon until it says 3 for 3 seconds or 10 for 10 seconds
3. Take a photo
