Google has now brought the stock camera app known as Google Camera to the Play Store, making it easier to bring updates and add new features whenever necessary. This is a policy first introduced by Motorola with a few of its core Moto X and Moto G apps and was subsequently followed by HTC as well.
As of now, this camera app is only compatible with Android 4.4 running devices, so you won’t have any luck if you’re carrying an older device. Nexus devices are already running the app by default, but re-downloading the app will bring an all new user interface to the existing camera app on your device.
Here’s a list of features coming with this new app:
- Photo Spheres for immersive 360º views
- Lens Blur mode for SLR-like photos with shallow depth of field
- Panorama mode with high resolution
- 100% viewfinder for getting the maximum resolution from the sensor (no dropped pixels)
- Updated UI that gets out of your way and is centered on an extra large capture button
- Works on phones and tablets running Android 4.4+ KitKat
