    Was the shortcut to double press the power button to launch the camera removed in the latest update. If so this change is driving me crazy as I now do not have a quick way to open the camera at any point. This is a must when having kids.

    It should still be there
    Check in settings>system settings>power button, you should be able to enable the double click the power button to launch camera there

    Thanks for responding. I see the option for power button but none to launch the camera with a double press. Seems they changed the multiple press of the power button for emergency calling now. 3 times will dial emergency services

    Oh, you don't have the following 2 options under the power button menu?

    In the settings of the camera app you should also have the option to set a double click on the volume button as a shortcut to open the camera when they phone is locked

    I also have this issue, and also very inconvenient with kids!
    I no longer have the first option in the screen shot above.
    This happened after upgrading to android 12
