How To Directly Start Video Camera On Galaxy Devices Running Android Pie?

On Galaxy phones running Android Pie, the camera comes with different image and video modes. So, to record a video, more steps are involved after launching the camera application. This is something most users have not fully adjusted to, and Samsung has showed no sign to go back to their pre-Android Pie camera UI where the clip recording button was always obvious and possessed no dedicated mode for it.

But, not to worry, it is possible to always go straight into the camera’s video recording mode. To achieve this, just create a shortcut to the camera’s video mode on your home screen. This can happen because of Android’s App Shortcuts feature. This feature has been part of Android since Android 7.1 Nougat and it grants you shortcuts to use several functionality from inside an application by long-pressing the application’s icon on the home screen or in the application drawer. To access the shortcuts easily, simply place them on the home screen.

On Samsung devices running Android Pie with the fresh One UI interface, App Shortcuts let you open the camera application in image or video recording mode. And this shortcut can be directed to your homescreen to ensure your minutes do not get wasted unnecessarily by launching the camera application and then switching to clip mode whenever you intend to record a clip.
