Google Camera update brings new interface to Marshmallow devices

Google Nexus 5X Review-11

Nexus devices not only get first dibs on the most recent version of Android, but Google also gives owners app updates not available to other devices. One example of this is the Google Camera introduced with the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, which is finally available to all devices running Marshmallow. Great, right? Mostly, yes, but you’ll need the latest Nexus phones to take advantage of the app’s best features, such as slow motion and burst modes.

The update is mostly good for bringing over the updated interface to older devices, which now makes switching between photo and video really easy. Much like on iOS, all you do is swipe left or right, and you’ll switch to your preferred mode. Otherwise it’s a pretty familiar experience, with features such as Panorama, Photo Sphere, and more hidden out of sight.

The newest update brings Google Camera up to version 3.1, which should be rolling out now. I haven’t seen it in the Google Play store just yet, though the APK is already floating around courtesy of Android Police.
