Android Users - There's a New Google Camera App in Google Play
Hot off the press is the news that Google have launched their very own Google Camera App which is now available in the Google Play Store. The app is called 'Google Camera' and it has some new and improved features if you compare it to the camera software available on Android KitKat 4.4. Here's what you need to know.
The free Google Camera app is simple to use and comes with a clearer user interface which includes a bigger shutter button and viewfinder - what you see through the viewfinder will be the actual image you capture. Compatible with all devices which run on Android KitKat 4.4 and upwards, Google Camera features a Lens Blur mode which gives an SLR camera (larger lens) effect and Photo Sphere which is perfectly suited to take shots of beautiful landscapes and views in 360 degrees.
The Lens Blur setting will enable users to blur the background in a photo, whilst focusing on the subject or vice versa thanks to its shallower depth of field. You can even chose which element of your image to blur after you've taken it. Google have also improved their Panoramic settings with higher resolution and several new features are promised for the app when updates are finalised shortly. The new features are expected to include an Advanced Camera Mode, Wide Angle Mode and Time Lapse Mode.
The new app should make taking photos and video a whole lot easier with great results, it's definitely worth downloading Google Camera App and experimenting with the enhanced features.
