Take photos with Jacquard

Snap selfies and group photos from a distance with a simple gesture on your Jacquard threads. When you use the Camera ability, your Jacquard item’s light will blink three times and your Jacquard item will vibrate before your photo is captured. Photos taken with Jacquard will be saved in an album titled “Jacquard” on your mobile device.

Note: This ability uses the front-facing camera by default, but you can change it by hitting the 'reverse' button on your camera when it opens.
