Google Camera App

If you happen to use the Google Camera app from Google Play, which would be anyone here with a Nexus device or anyone who downloaded it to use over their device’s built-in OEM camera app, you will be happy to learn that the Google Camera app on Google Play now matches that of the camera app found inside of the Android N Developer Preview. Specifically, it is version 3.2, and inside, it has a few tweaks that mobile photography fans are sure to get a kick out of.

At least as of its latest 3.1.021 version, it appears that Google Camera only works with Nexus devices. This is according to a new requirement listed on the app’s Play Store description and testing we’ve done with a non-Nexus Marshmallow device. Previously, as of version 2.5.052, the app was compatible with most phones running a relatively current version of Android. Does the addition of this requirement mean that Google is done updating the app for non-Nexus devices?

Google Camera’s user interface was updated, many features were added, and the app received a bump to version 3.1.021 with the release of the Nexus 5X and 6P. Those devices launched with 3.1.021 and a few weeks later the new version of the app was rolled out to other Nexus devices running Marshmallow through the Play Store. As it was a staged rollout, the app’s description was not updated until yesterday. Now, we’re seeing this:

out of ALL app updates, Google Camera updates excite me the most. 2nd: Google App, 3rd; Gmail, I’m waiting for a big Gmail overhaul, for no good reason, it’s just getting a bit old. This could be a good pole, “What Apps updates are you most excited about?”

Once updated from Google Play, the Google Camera application allows for users to capture stills while shooting raw video, with a shutter button added in for the quick capture feature. These still shots are saved to your Photos/Gallery app for later viewing. Also, the slow motion feature is no longer a video mode easily accessible, and instead, has been moved to the pullout menu. Accessing slow motion now requires a bit more work, but Google must have decided not enough people were using it.

That is correct. I have the 5x, stock Android M with “old” camera app, and the 6P with Android N dev preview and new camera app. I see no real differences in the app behavior/performance other than the added features and moved shortcuts.

Just about every camera app offers some way to control the zoom level, and Google’s camera app is no different. For a long time, the primary method of zooming was to use the pinch-to-zoom gesture. Alternatively, there’s a setting that maps the physical volume buttons to zoom, but that’s about it.

Eyal Yablonka February 14, 2017 Great app. I enjoy using it a lot. Records scenes up to 360 degree single slice. Would be nice to have it automatically restore scenes from Google photos (instead of manually). Would be nice to have more options for scene recording, e.g.: complete sphere, moving video. Would like to control the panorama photo quality. Please include an accelerometer-level indicator in the app, as well as a recommended speed indicator. Full Review Google Inc. February 13, 2017 We just released an update to address capture issues with the OnePlus3 on Android N. Please install the update and let us know in case the problem still occurs on your device.

Newly listed in the “Requirements” section of the app description is a line that reads: “Google Camera works on Nexus phones running Android 6.0 and above.” Perhaps unsurprisingly given this requirement, when downloading the fully-rolled-out app from the Play Store, the previous version (2.5.052) was installed on an HTC One A9 running Marshmallow.

Google is rolling out an update to its Camera app for Nexus and Pixel devices. The latest version isn’t sporting any major new improvements, but it’s not without a few refinements. This version adds an easier to use (but not entirely convenient) zoom control, tweaks the exposure control, and adds an option to mute camera sounds. We’re still looking for more changes, but in the meantime you can pick up the latest version from APK Mirror if it’s not already available to your phone.
