Google Launches Standalone Camera App In Play Store

Google has finally revamped its camera app for Android and at the same time it’s also releasing it to the Play Store for easier updating in the future. This one is available for any phone running Android 4.4+ KitKat.


Google has made a number of improvements and refinements here, introducing a much cleaner interface “that gets out of your way” with a prominent shutter button.  A brand new Lens Blur mode promises to achieve “SLR-like photos” offering a shallow depth of field.

Lens Blur replaces the need for a large optical system with computer vision algorithms and optimization techniques that are run entirely on the mobile device, simulating a larger lens and aperture in order to creating a 3D model of the world,” Google said. Google Camera packs in signature Mountain View features like Photo Sphere, and also brings the viewfinder back to 100 percent, meaning what you see will always be what you get in your final shot.

Google has also cranked up the stitching algorithm in the Photosphere and Panorama mode. Photospheres can now be up to 50MP in size, which is great for pixel peepers. Panorama resolution can also be adjusted between low, high and maximum with the processing time increasing as you go up from low.


Google Camera snaps quick and easy photos and videos, and has creative picture modes like Photo Sphere, Lens Blur and Panorama.

• 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
