A new update is rolling out to the Google Camera app, and bringing a number of new features along with it. The latest app version is 4.4, and it adds a selfie flash, double tap to zoom, a toggle button for photos and videos, and a bigger shutter button. Subtle, yet welcome changes.
The first time Google Camera 4.4 was spotted in the wild was in one of the Android O Developer Preview builds we’ve seen over the past few months. Now, it’s rolling out to the public for mass consumption – for devices on Android 7.1 and up, anyways.
It’s worth noting that none of the versions since 4.2 have supported 32-bit architectures, so if you’re running something pre-Snapdragon 808/810, well – sorry about your luck, unfortunately.
I tried installing the APK on my LG G6, but alas, I was unsuccessful. It’s only on Android 7.0, however, so there’s no shocker there. Gotta try though, right?
As such, I was unable to pull any juicy screenshots for you, so I’ll point you in the direction of the article where I spotted this tidbit for more info. You can find that over on Android Police, which is one of our favorite sites, by the way!
Download Google Camera v4.4
I’ve added a link below for the downloading pleasure of those who want to give the APK file a spin. It’s verified and 100% safe to install, but remember – you’ll need to enable app installations from unknown sources from within your device settings to do so.
After you snag the APK file up, be sure to stop back and let us know if you got it to install okay, and if everything is in working order. We’d love to hear from you in the comment thread!
And while we’re on the subject of Camera apps, here are 10 that I suggest you should give a look!
