Android 6.0.1 has only just hit a range of Nexus devices in the past 24 hours, so users are still discovering a few new hidden extras packed into the update. While the chief feature of the update was touted as new emoji support, the update has also brought a double-tap power camera shortcut to the Nexus 5, 6, 7 (2013) and 9, along with tweaks to the Do Not Disturb mode.

This double tap power button camera shortcut originally appeared with the new Nexus 5X and 6P models, but now a wider number of Nexus owners can quickly launch their camera when the screen is off, which is bound to come in useful when you really quickly need to capture a picture.

Another not so new feature in Android 6.0.1 is the reintroduction of “until next alarm” feature to the OS’ Do Not Disturb notification mode. Rather than manually having to mute and unmute system sounds, this mode can be used to automatically unmute notifications once your alarm goes off in the morning. Another pretty useful addition.
