Google wants to optimize Android camera app

After many comparisons between the functions of the Android camera app and those of other manufacturers using Google's OS, Big G seems to be working on a number of Android camera software enhancements including the continuous shooting, facial recognition and the ability to work with RAW images. Who said this was the folks at Ars Technica, which informs that the survey dates from December last year.

Through the Android source code, the Ars Technica realized that the upgrades would be part of a camera API, which could be obtained by any manufacturer, making all Android phones come with these features natively. However, in October, this API was taken from the KitKat code with the following note: "not ready yet".

If we take into account the search time of the functions, it seems that Google could not make changes to KitKat version and had to postpone the upgrade, as the camera was one of the most questioned points of version 4.4 so far. Although we still can't count on a better native OS camera, it's good to see that Android developers are facing one of the biggest shortcomings of the operating system.
