Snap a photo from lock screen by button press?

    Just got a Moto G8 Power (which I believe is the same as Moto G Power, outside the US?).

    The device itself seems pretty good considering the price, but the focus on gestures annoys me. Call me old fashioned, but I prefer pressing buttons or a touch screen.

    On most other phones I've had, there's been an option to double press the volume/power/whatever button to quickly open the camera and snap a photo when the device is locked. On the Moto G8 Power, it seems the only option is some kind of twisting motion (which obviously won't snap a photo, just open the camera). I know I can open the camera app from the bottom right corner, but it would be nice to be able to quickly snap a photo when wearing gloves for example.

    Is there any way to enable double pressing the volume/power button to use the camera from the lock screen? I've looked through the settings but couldn't find anything. Btw, is it just me, or are the settings on this phone more disorganized than usual? Even the search function seems a bit hit-ot-miss when searching for settings?
