We now take a break from all this Nexus nonsense to talk about the Moto X’s camera app.
When certain pieces of hardware on devices need to be upgraded, we usually see OTA software updates. However, Motorola is now updating the Moto X camera app through the Play Store.
The device’s camera was one of the weaker features of the phone at launch, and the last OTA update to all Moto X variants greatly improved the performance. But now, Moto has decided that if they want to update the camera (and maybe some other things) more frequently, the faster way to do so is through the Play Store. (Basically, the carriers are constantly getting in the way.)
This is a very welcome change, as maybe other manufacturers will catch on and do the same with many features of the phone that don’t really require an OTA update.
Here’s what the update brings:
- Brightened camera viewfinder so it’s easier to see
- Enabled Quick Capture for more Enterprise users IT policies
- Bug fixes
Hit the break for the link to the app in the Play Store.
