Owners of Android-based devices interested in trying out a camera application coming from Google themselves can now do so as long as they have an Android 4.4 KitKat or newer handset or tablet.

The software was made available for download this week under the name of Google Camera, capable of providing users with features such as Photo Sphere, Lens Blur, and Panorama.

With Photo Sphere, users will be able to snap 360-degree views, while the Lens Blur mode will enable them to shoot SLR-like photos with shallow depth of field.

At the same time, there is the aforementioned Panorama mode that offers support for high-resolution photo snapping.

The mobile application will offer a 100 percent viewfinder, which means that users will see on their devices exactly what the camera will capture when they press the shutter button. It also ensures that users get the maximum resolution from the sensor (no dropped pixels), Google explains.

The mobile app also features an updated user interface, which is centered around an extra-large capture button, but which won’t stand in people’s way when they start snapping photos.

At the moment, the application is up for grabs as version 2.1.037. You can download Google Camera for Android from Softpedia today.
