Nokia Camera app is now available on the Play Store

HMD, the company responsible for Nokia-branded smartphones, has promised to provide regular software updates to its new Android handsets. So far, the company has been very reassuring in this regard; and now, there are more reasons to believe in its commitment.

The Nokia Camera app is now available to download from the Play Store. Companies usually offload their first-party apps when they plan to provide app updates without needing to bundle them with an OS update. Handset manufacturers such as Sony, Samsung, and HTC have most of their apps available in the Play Store.

Recently, HMD acquired the patent to use Lumia Camera UI from Microsoft. If this is any indication, we might soon see the dial-like UI make its way into the Nokia Camera app. Photographers looking for more convenient access to finer camera controls will definitely appreciate this addition.

Barring a few exceptions, the software present in the new Nokia smartphones is identical to vanilla Android. It won't be surprising if Nokia becomes one of the earliest OEMs to seed the next Android update.

You can head over to the Play Store to download the app to compatible HMD Nokia devices.
