A few weeks ago, a number of reports indicated that Google was in the process of bringing update to the default camera app on Android that promises to give Android phones a better chance of competing with phones from other manufacturers.

Today, the search giant has released its new camera app on the Google Play store for consumers with devices running on version 4.4 KitKat. Just like in previous rumours, the updated Google camera app for Android will pack several features that should make these devices better at capturing photos.

For starters, there’s a lens blur motion that imitates the effect of blurring a part of the photo to create a focus point for viewers. This feature is achieved by allowing the camera to capture multiple shots, which are used to estimate and calculate the depth of objects for a 3D map that lets the software re-render the image later.

The app also now comes with a 100% viewfinder that should allow users to see everything in the picture on their screen before the shot is taken with no dropped pixels. Moreover, Panorama shots are now easier to take with higher resolution and an added 360-degree Photo Spheres mode that can capture up to 50MP images.

The app is now available on Google Play store but do note that some features won’t be present in other devices.
