We’ve been hearing rumors about Google’s Camera app hitting the Play Store for about 2 weeks now and today that finally happened. This was no simple move to the Play Store as to allow for easy updating, it also comes with a complete redesign, a needed one at that. The updated camera app even comes with new effects like the ability to change the focus from the foreground to the background after the picture has been taken. And as for the radial menu that we all knew and loved (not really), it’s been replaced with a much easier to use overflow menu located next to the shutter button.
One more thing definitely worth noting is that the design of Google’s new camera app seems to look very similar in a lot of ways to the leaked updated Gmail and Calendar apps. This solidifies even further the probability that Google will be updating the UI of their apps in the near future.
If you would like to take Google’s new camera app for a spin you can get it on any Android device running Android 4.4 KitKat. Below is a link to the app on the Play Store.
