Google Camera App Updated With Remote Shutter for Android Wear, and More
Google has quietly started pushing out an update to its stock Google Camera app. The update adds remote shutter control for Android Wear devices, allowing users to click images via their smartwatch or other Android Wear devices, using their Android smartphone or tablet's camera.

With the latest update, Google Camera app users can click an image with their smartphones or tablets by just tapping a button on the smartwatch. The update also offers a preview of the clicked images on the smartwatch. Apart from Android Wear compatibility, the Google Camera app has also received a refreshed panorama capture interface.

Android Police notes that the new Google Camera app update bumps up the version 2.2 to version 2.3; however, as of now, the Google Play India listing of the app lists the app with version 2.2.024.

Google last updated its Camera app in May with version 2.2 for devices running Android 4.4+ KitKat OS. The update featured two new Panorama capturing modes, besides the existing horizontal and vertical Panorama modes. The two new Panorama modes are said to be fisheye mode and wide-angle mode. The update also let users the option to click images in 16:9 ratio along with a timer mode with 10 seconds and 3 seconds option.

The Google Camera app for Android 4.4+ KitKat devices was released in April. The highlight of the Google Camera app was the Lens Blur mode that the Mountain View giant claimed gives SLR-like images with shallow depth of field.

Other features in the first-launched Google Camera app included a new UI with 100 percent viewfinder and large capture button; as well as improved Panorama and Photo Sphere, which can generate 360 degree views. Notably, this was the first time that Google released its Photo Sphere app for non-Nexus devices.
