Google’s official Camera app has been added to the Google Play Store with additional features and a new interface. This is Awesome news because now they can update the app and anyone can receive the update easily rather than waiting for a OTA update. According to the change-log, the new app is designed for tablets and phones running Android 4.4 KitKat, though it doesn’t specify if there’s any other limitations beyond this.

As you can tell, the biggest change from the ‘stock’ Camera app found on devices like the Nexus 5 is the brand new UI. There’s also a new lens blur feature, the ability to undo a segment in photosphere that you don’t want, new animations when taking videos and images, and several other minor feature changes. There’s even the long promised viewfinder fix, and likely at least a few other bug fixes.

Here’s the full description of the modes for those interested,

  • Photo Spheres for immersive 360º views
  • Lens Blur mode for SLR-like photos with shallow depth of field
  • Panorama mode to take widescreen shots

Checkout the image Slideshow below for the interface options.
