For Nexus 7’s newbie, you will see that the Nexus 7 comes with a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera, but it doesn't have a camera-launching app to use this function. So, is there any way to take picture using this front camera? The answer is yes, you can do either one of these two options below:
1. First, use apps like Facebook, Skype, Instagram or some other apps that allows sharing pictures. When you share a picture, you will have the opportunity to take a photo.
- First open an app like Facebook, tap on the Camera button and shoot the pictures you want.
- The picture will be then shared through those social networks, or you can also find them in the Gallery app.
2. If you don’t want to use the Camera via those apps, then the easiest way is to go to Google Play store and download the Camera Launcher for Nexus 7 app from MoDaCo. With this app, you can instantly use the Nexus 7’s Camera. This cool app also features some camera effects, and it’s totally free.
