For those of you who own a Nexus 5 2013 and a Nexus 2014 device, you will now be able to open the camera app much quicker with just double tapping the power button. This has already been seen in the Nexus 5x and 6p when they were launched and released.

Do Not Disturb Mode Alarm set

This was an old feature that was pulled. but now it has come back to its rightful place. You will only see this appear once you have set up an alarm on your device.
