After a previous update introduced a timer function in the Google Camera, that feature is now making its way to our Android Wear devices in the latest 2.3 update. Still rolling out in stages, the update will allow you to trigger a timer from your phone’s camera remotely by using your LG G Watch, Samsung Gear Live, or the upcoming Motorola Moto 360.
Once updated, all you have to do is open the Google Camera app on your phone or tablet and watch as a card pops up on your Android Wear smartwatch. Once pressed, a 3 second timer will countdown and once the image has been captured, it will magically appear on your watch for quick viewing. Doesn’t get any easier than that.
Of course exactly how you intend on using this new feature is totally up to you. Aside from spy cams or creep shots we’re not entirely sure how useful a remote camera functionality will be, but for Android photogs with a tripod handy, this could be indispensable for quick family portraits while on vacation.
By now you know the story: you can either wait for the update to hit your device in the coming days, or sideload via our MediaFire link below. Enjoy!
