Windows Camera gets an update too alongside with the updated and improved Photos app. The update does not bring anything new to the table but we assumed this is related to the newly updated Photos app and for some minor improvements too. Head to the Windows Store to grab the update or click the link below.

Windows Camera
Developer: Microsoft Corporation
Price: Free

The redesigned Camera app is faster and simpler than ever. Just point and shoot to take great pictures automatically. The same great camera experience is available across Windows 10 PCs, tablets, and phones.

On any PC, tablet or phone
• Automatically back up your pictures so you can get to them on all your devices via OneDrive.
• Pause and resume while you record video to help stitch together separate moments.
• Jump into the picture by using the photo timer.
• Compose the perfect shot using the framing grid.
• Set the camera to capture either a rapid burst of shots or a video when you press and hold the on-screen shutter button.
• For pro controls, drag the shutter button toward the center and adjust the dials for brightness and more.

On select phones and tablets:
• Capture more of the scene with panorama on phones and tablets. *(7)
• Transform your static photos into living images that move, then play them back in the Photos app on any Windows 10 device. *(4,5,6)
