By Xite - March 20, 2020
Expanding its Andoid Go app line-up, Google today announced a new Camera Go app for entry level smartphones. Google says that app is not complex, rather easy to use and also features a Portrait Mode.

With cameras on smartphone taking up centre stage in our lives allowing us to capture memories and to share with those around us, however, on many entry level smartphones, camera apps are often slow or complex to use, and your phone can quickly run out of storage.

But, with the new Google’s Camera Go app you won’t have to worry about speed or storage while capturing images. The Camera Go is app is designed to work on Android Go, which is a latest lightweight Android OS powering low-cost smartphones. Google says that the Camera Go app is built for people using smartphones for the first time, so it has a clean and simple interface. The Camera Go app also tracks how much photo and video storage space you have left.

The Camera Go app features ‘Portrait Mode’ to help you capture bokeh effect photos – giving them a professional look by focusing on your subject.

The Camera Go app joins the list of other apps (including Gallery Go, Files Go, Google Go) designed for Android (Go edition). The Google Go is a lightweight search engine that even works on unstable connections. And with Lens in Google Go, people can quickly translate, hear and search text they see in the real world using their phone camera—helping them understand words on street signs, medicine labels, documents, and more.

In the past, the company has also introduced a number of user privacy features to protect the next billion people coming online for the first time. For example, a new mode within Google Go lets people search without their searches being saved to their account, and Gallery Go leverages on-device machine learning to help people organise photos without ever sending data to the cloud.

Google also announced that there are 1,600 device models available in over 180 countries and there are now over 100 million active Android (Go edition) devices around the world.

‘The Camera Go will be available on Nokia 1.3 and more Android (Go edition) devices soon,’ Google said in a blog post.
