It's been almost two months since we reported that panorama functionality would be coming to Windows Camera. Today, new evidence has presented itself that it's coming soon.
The news comes from Senior Program Manager for the Windows Insider Program team, Brandon LeBlanc.
Keep in mind that the Windows Camera application can be updated at any time. While panorama might not make it in time for the Anniversary Update, it could happen a week, a month, or a year later. In other words, it doesn't have to coincide with an OS update.
Adding native functionality for panoramas will be a collective "finally" for the Windows phone community. In the days of Windows Phone 8.1, Nokia broke up camera features into separate apps, such as Lumia Panorama.
Back in October, Microsoft officially ended support for the app (among others), telling users to patiently wait while the company integrates those features into Windows Camera. It's not clear exactly when the feature is to be implemented, but it's nice to know that it's still in the pipeline after almost two months of silence.
