If you like to create panoramas in Photo Sphere, you need to install Android 4.3 as soon as possible. According to Evan Rapoport, Google Maps product manager, the feature has gained “major quality improvements”.
Rapoport points out that Photo Sphere has undergone adjustments and corrections to present fewer errors. It also incorporates a new alignment and sewing system capable of assembling images even with moving objects.
“We also improved the exposure compensation for each individual frame, producing a well-exposed sphere. You can compare this with previous versions that produced gray areas and inconsistent coloring in high contrast areas (close to the sun, horizons, buildings against the blue sky, etc.) ”, he said.
Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean) is available for the Nexus line, which includes the Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 10. For Galaxy S4 and HTC One Google Edition phones, the update depends on the manufacturers.
