I'm wondering if there's a way to record video using the front-facing camera on my Pixel 6 Pro, while another app is showing on-screen?

The reason I ask is because I was showing my baby some puppy gifs the other day, and he was laughing a lot, and I tried to record video, but when I brought up the gif, the camera stopped recording.

I tried using a second device but it didn't work as well as I'd like because he ended up getting distracted by his "reflection" in the camera (so vain!) and it was awkward to hold both phones and keep him from wiggling away.

Ideally, I'd prefer a solution that doesn't require an app (like, if it's an option in the existing camera app or settings somewhere), but if it does require a special app, a suggestion as to which one would be good (and hopefully not steal data or whatever) would suffice.

Thanks in advance!
