What is the Hyperlapse camera mode and how do I use it?

PLEASE NOTE: that the Hyperlapse mode is only available when using the back camera and is only available on specific devices.

 

The icons and screens may differ slightly from the illustrations below depending on your device, operating system and theme.

Hyperlapse is a feature that allows you to create your own time-lapse video.  It records at various frame rates which automatically adjust to what you’re recording.
