Quick access to the Camera app coming in Windows 10 Mobile with the Redstone update
Direct access to the Camera from the Lock Screen
Upcoming Window 10 Mobile Anniversary update will bring many new features and improvements to the OS. One of them appears to be the quick access to the Camera app from the navigation bar on the lock screen.
The quick camera button seems to replace the Back button on the phone’s lock screen, so users can tap and hold for a second to start the Camera. This feature will definitely help users who own phones without a dedicated camera button, but with virtual navigation keys, to launch the Camera app much faster than before.
At the same time, phones like Lumia 950 do not need the quick Camera button, so Microsoft may allow users to customize the navigation bar in the upcoming mobile builds.
Microsoft is expected to release a new Windows 10 Mobile Insider build next week, after this week’s build 14316 was canceled due to a serious stopping bug with the cellular network.
