Photo Sphere for Android 4.2 Brings Family Together in One Click

December 21, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Festivals and occasions bring family and friends together in one spot. How many times during a festive occasion have you wished to capture the joy of the moment in one shot?

One click of the camera, and everyone in the room, wherever they may be standing, even if they are outside the frame, will be included in the photo. Well, such a shot is possible now.

Thanks to the Photo Sphere application, the camera on your smartphone will be able to take a 360-degree shot and wide-angled shots. The application is supported on phones that run on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, including the Nexus 4, so those who have lesser versions of Android would need to upgrade.


It’s Christmas, so upgrade your phone and have some fun moments capturing the holidays. It’s an awesome feature, especially great to take family photos, and you can be assured that no one gets left out.

Everyone can sit where they are, in their own space, instead of cramming them all together like the old-fashioned way. The application’s got a commercial, which you can see below.

The Cheris, spending some holiday time together, gets a family photo using the Photo Sphere. As you can see in the video, the app is relatively easy to use.

Just snap your photos, aiming at any direction you want, and the app does the stitching for you. So in the end, you get a complete panoramic shot. When you click your first shot, the app will set a starting point for you.

There will also be another reference point which overlaps the first, and it will go on until you have finished clicking. The end result is a large scrollable image, just like the way you want.
