Google just released an update to the stock Camera app for Android that comes pre-installed on Nexus and Google Play Edition devices with a refreshed UI and a very useful feature that almost all flagship devices of 2014 from have on board — Lens blur.

The Google Camera app boasts the Lens Blur feature that allows you to take pictures with the subject emphasized and the background blurred. Yes, that’s like a shot that you take with your SLR camera with shallow depth-of-field. And the best part is that you can change the subject in focus even after taking the picture, plus further fine-tune the background blur.

While, Lens Blur is the most exciting feature of this update to Android’s stock Camera app, the refreshed UI and enhancements to Panaroma and  Photosphere shots are great as well. Check out the official Announcement by Google below:

Today we’re launching Google Camera, a new app for your Android phone or tablet that makes it easy to take quick photos and videos. And being behind the lens just got more fun with new creative picture modes.

Sleek Design: The 100% viewfinder gets out of your way while capturing the maximum resolution of the scene (no dropped pixels). And the extra large capture button is easy to press so your eyes never lose sight of the subject.

Lens Blur: Emphasize the subject while blurring the background for an SLR-like shot with shallow depth-of-field (or bokeh). You can even change the subject in focus after taking the shot.

Improved Panorama: New higher resolution panoramas capture the full width and detail of a scene.

Photo Sphere: Immersive 360 degree photo spheres let you look up, down and all around…now at up to 50 megapixels! For the first time available on non-Nexus devices.

Compatibility? The Google Camera app is compatible with Android 4.4 KitKat only.
