WhatsApp is working on slightly tweaked camera interface for its Android app. At the moment if you open built-in camera interface of messaging app, you get shutter button along with buttons to switch to front camera and jump into gallery. A button to toggle flash is located in top-right corner. In order to take a video, you are required to long press shutter button. This could be cumbersome in various scenarios since you required to continue holding shutter button while talking a video.
