With Android 4.4 dropping on us this Halloween, we’re seeing a lot of improvements to all the apps we hold dear. One of those apps is the camera. To that effect, one of camera’s most popular camera modes, the Photosphere, is also receiving a bit of a tune up itself. The update improves both quality and image stitching. On top of that, image rendering has received a boost in speed. Even so, it appears that the stitching is the most notable fix in KitKat.
There should be a decent reduction in stitching errors thanks to the new “optimal seam finding.” This seam finding looks for the most optimal space to stitch individual pictures together to avoid moving objects, people and difficult areas. On top of that, indoor environment stitching has been improved. So look for that on your newly purchased Nexus 5 or your soon-to-be updated Nexus devices.
