A new report claims that Google is looking to launch a new camera app for Android with an upgraded user interface and the addition of a few new features. The app will also bring support for third party camera filters, it is said. This should make for a decent camera app, especially since the stock Android camera app is nothing to write home about at the moment.

It is said that this new app will also bring a new background blurring effect, similar to what we see on the Samsung Galaxy S5 as well the HTC One M8 with its focusing effects. Google will also reportedly make some changes to the Panorama as well as the Photo sphere shooting modes and provide a slightly broader viewfinder to give users a better idea of what their pictures would look like.

Furthermore, the report goes onto state that the stock camera app will be available directly from the Google Play Store allowing any smartphone with Android 4.4 or above enjoy the app. This is great news and well in line with what we’ve seen from Motorola and HTC. So it’s clear that Google has some big plans to revamp the camera experience of its stock Android devices.
