The official Google Camera app is Not available for free download from the Play Store . This brings Google some interesting features on other smartphones and tablets, which may not have been equipped before. Minimum requirement for the use is however Android 4.4 KitKat , that restricts the employment possibility already neatly. We tried the camera on the LG G2 .
The Google Camera can be installed as normal and for free via the Play Store on all Android smartphones and tablets equipped with Android 4.4 KitKat. There it can be used as an alternative app for creating photos or videos. Of course, the camera app, which was pre-installed by the manufacturer, is not completely replaced. The interface is very simple and basically self-explanatory. With a swipe from links, you can bring out the different modes. The three dots in the top right corner will take you to the options where you can find additional properties such as the HDR mode. If this is active, it is also displayed.
You can no longer find the Google Camera app in the Google Play Store . You can still download it like this:
In the course of outsourcing to the Google Play Store, the search engine giant of the camera app has donated a completely new design with a changed menu navigation and creative image modes. The only requirement for this application is a smartphone or tablet with at least Android 4.4 KitKat .
Features of the app include a 360 ° Photo Sphere mode, a focus effect mode for shallow depth photos, and a high resolution panorama mode. In addition, the application offers a viewfinder with 100% coverage for maximum sensor resolution and a fade-out interface.
Since version 2.2.024 you can shoot photos in 16: 9 format with the official Google Camera app. In addition, with fisheye and wide angle, two new panorama modes are introduced, which can be applied both vertically and horizontally. Also new: Google Camera now has a timer that shoots automatically after 3 or 10 seconds of photos.
Built-in Google Camera features include Phone Sphere , Panorama, and Focus Effect . Everyone knows the first two functions, with focus effect brings blurring into the picture about an additional movement when creating a picture. Interestingly, the Google Camera app runs on the LGG2 really good and accelerates this compared to the app of LG partially noticeable. The focus is visibly faster in a direct comparison and also reacts very reliably. The white balance and the shutter lag are also very good. What is missing are the extensive settings and the manual mode. Since the app from LG has something more to offer. In addition, we would have liked more options, such as the ability to create slow motion shots.
However, since the app is now available in the Play Store independently of the Android operating system, Google can now also provide new functions and features via an update . The first impression is already pretty good, we won. Just try the Google Camera and leave your impressions in the comments.
