One of the cool new features that Google is introducing with Android 4.2
is the ability to take 360-degree photos straight from the stock camera application. In a nutshell, the smartphone or tablet's camera keeps on shooting images while the user pans about with their device, and then the individual photos are stitched together, thus one seamless (okay, mostly seamless) composite photograph is created.
And now that the platform and the first devices running it – the LG Nexus 4
and the Google Nexus 10
tablet, are official, the first 360-degree panoramas are already here. They have been pinned on Google Maps for the world to see, and you can check them out by following the link below. What do you think of this new feature in Android 4.2 Jelly Bean?
