Google has been posting versions of most of its first-party apps to the Play Store in an effort to update key features of Android (or at least Google’s branded additions to the platform) without having to wait for carriers to push out software apps. According to a report from Engadget, the standard camera app will soon get an upgrade, presumably following the same path. At this point we’ll consider this a rumor, since Engadget only cites “sources aware of Google’s plans.”
The report says that the updated camera app will include many of the bells and whistles that newer devices are getting, like the fake depth of field effect shown off on the HTC One M8.
