    Used to be able to zoom by sliding my finger up or down the screen in camera mode. But, can't see how to zoom at all. Did an update change this function?
    Thank you
    On edit, I found a setting, I guess it changed in a update.

    don't you hate it when they move things. I am still looking for features lost from the last upgrade of the launcher I use.

    Just FYI....Moto recently rolled out the Camera 2018 app update to the Z Series, Moto X4, Moto G5 and apparently the Moto G4 also. The whole app interface has been redesigned.

    It's nice to see Moto include these 2016 phones in their new camera app update.

    I hope the update helps. I've had horrible trouble getting my camera to focus over the past few weeks. It's not the phone... I had issues with both replacements (that sounds really bad).

    Seems to be focusing like it should.
    I agree with you that it's nice to see an older model get included in the update.

    Welcome to the Forum. Swipe left to right to get to the new settings screen. Then tap Settings in the top right. Then enable the Tap Anywhere /Swipe to Zoom option.

    Doesn't work for me. Swiping left to right just switches from camera mode to panorama mode.

    Never mind, I found it. If swiping right takes you to Panorama mode, you have to click on the Panorama button to change back to the settings screen. What a horrible interface.
