The Google Pixel camera is a kind of status symbol. When someone sees you with someone, you become the favorite photographer for social events. And where do those photos end up? Social media of course. It's how we share our lives now, and the smartphone camera defines how we approach that.
Because taking photos and sharing on social media is synonymous, it makes sense to be able to share them immediately. Google thought ahead and recently introduced a feature in the Pixel Camera app, which allows you to choose up to three social media apps to share photos. Once you've set it up, just take a photo and click on the desired app icon. It really is that simple.
Enable Social Share
To get started with this quick sharing feature, go ahead and open the Pixel Camera app to the main screen and then tap the expand icon at the top or swipe with one finger down. Now tap on the gear icon in the lower right, find the "Social Share" option in the list and select it to go to the next screen.
If necessary, set the switch to the on position for the "Social Share" option to enable it, you will now see all available apps for parts installed on your phone, since you can select up to three at a time , if you want to choose the one you want to use the most, turn the switch on to turn each on until all three are on, then you are done here.
Go back to the main screen, go to the "Camera" section Immediately afterwards, an expand arrow icon appears above the preview in the bottom right corner, tap the arrow to display the three selected apps, or simply swipe up over the camera roll preview for the last photo
Once you have an app in the extended menu, it will transfer to the geko zen app with the photo attached and ready to use. Ready!
