Google is now offering a standalone camera app for Android that’s very similar to the standard app that ships with the stock version of Android. TouchWiz users rejoice.
Google Camera replicates many of the features from the stock Android 4.4 KitKat app, like Photo Spheres. And even if you’re running stock on a Nexus device, the app offers a prettier UI. Google Camera also sports a brand new “Lens Blur” feature that uses processing to create the shallow depth of field that you can usually only get from a larger sensor camera like a DSLR. You might be perfectly satisfied with the app on your Android phone, but if you’re using an HTC and Samsung handset with a proprietary camera app, Google Camera gives you the Android photography experience just as Google intended it.
