    5. During each filming session, the user sees a green upload toast indicating that footage has uploaded successfully

  4. Film the following durations, as of now

What we're updating (in order)

  1. Suggestion for filming via Chrome browser when filming in Firefox (bug)
  2. Camera lens switcher (forward/rear) not appearing on load (bug)
  3. Orientation helper intermittently showing up after checking "do not show this message again" (bug)
  4. Saving videos to device, as opposed to our current direct upload flow (enhancement)
  5. Some legacy Androids getting stuck at 30FPS (bug)
