Confirmed: all Windows 10 phones will be able to use the Lumia Camera app


Several days ago, we told you that the Lumia Camera app could become available to all Windows 10 devices, regardless of their manufacturer. Now, Windows Central can confirm that Lumia Camera will be part of Microsoft's universal apps included on Windows 10 - so we'll be able to use it not just on phones, but also on tablets and PCs that are running the new version of Microsoft's OS.

As its name suggests, the Lumia Camera app is currently available only on Lumia smartphones. Once Windows 10 arrives on current WP 8 handsets, the app should become compatible with all of them. However, it's said that PureView Lumia models will still keep some exclusive features, including Rich Capture and Living Images. Plus, of course, handsets with modest specs and camera sensors won't be able to use the Lumia Camera app at its true potential (you can't record 4K video with a device that doesn't support this) - but it's still nice that they're going to get it.

The not-so-great part about all this is that Windows 10 is not quite ready to be released: Microsoft expects to officially launch the new OS in late 2015. Until then, you can check out some of the new features that Windows 10 for phones will bring here.
