If you haven’t as yet got your hands on the new Google standalone Camera app, you need to head for the PlayStore now. For, Google has readied for all you KitKat 4.4 owners an awesome camera option.

If you are wondering how to get this one working on your smart device, here goes.

The first thing you need to do is to go to PlayStore and update your Android KitKat 4.4 phone with the app. Once the update is complete, you will get to see that the user interface dons a refined look. This refinement in fact makes the settings menu easier to navigate and more features too will be visible.


You would now want to navigate through Google’s Camera app effortlessly. Google has indeed made it that way. What you will get to see is gesture control options that are arrayed on the edge of your smartphone’s display.

Now, just swipe in from the right edge and this will make the Photos app visible. Also, by swiping in from the left end will bring to play all the available camera modes your phone now has.

You will find the shutter button at bottom of your handset. Don’t miss the settings icon placed just on top of the shutter button towards the right.

You are now ready to shoot. Almost all the modes are what you have already seen. But one addition that makes us go for it is the new Lens Blur mode.
