The default camera on most Android handsets has always been criticised for lacking a number of useful features leaving its partners to come up with their own solutions to make cameras on Android phones able to compete with that of the iPhone.

Fortunately, it seems that those days will soon be over as reports suggest that Google is now working on the default camera app on Android to make it at par with its rivals. According to a report by Engadget, the search giant is currently testing a new version of the camera app on Android that promises a refreshed user interface and a 100% viewfinder.

Other rumoured improvements on the app include a background blurring effect for portrait pictures that simulate the effect produced by cameras with large aperture lenses. Higher-resolution panorama and photo sphere modes are also reportedly joining the list of improvements.

Google will also reportedly open up the app with support for third party filters, which should make it easy for those into smartphone photography to download custom effects to the app. There’s also word that the app may become available to non-Nexus owners so users will still be able to enjoy the app even when using other Android phones from other brands.
