If you’re excited about Android Wear, here’s something to make you anticipate its arrival even more – Google has just updated its Camera app for Android, allowing users to use their Android Wear-powered smartwatch as a remote shutter; who needs monopods or “selfie sticks”?
The update is available immediately in the Google Play Store for supported devices. It adds a card to Android Wear device that appears when the app is launched. After you tap the card, you will have 3 seconds countdown before the shutter gets activated; a preview image will even be shown on the smartwatch itself.
It’s not a major update, and isn’t significant for those of us who do not have an Android Wear smartwatch, but it sure is nice to see Google working hard on bringing a seamless experience on all of its products. The latest Google Camera app is being rolled out slowly but if you’re too impatient, you know where to get the APK file from – AndroidPolice (link below).
The update also brings a refreshed panorama interface, with bigger and bolder circles to align, making it easier to capture a panorama scene.
So, are you getting more and more excited about Android Wear?
