Camera Go Features

"Camera Go is deeply integrated into the phone's operating system, and is not just photo filtering on top," explains Arpit Midha, a lead product manager for Android. The portrait mode on the Camera Go app can even create a depth-of-field in the photos. "That's a first in this class of devices. It democratizes photography for the entry-level," he said.

Some of the other features include the app's capability to track the phone's storage and informing users how many photos and videos storage space is still available. It even suggests ways to clear the space, for instance, by pointing out similar photos.

In other news, Google also announced that the Android Go has reached over 100 million monthly active users. Midha further noted that the goal for "Android Go Edition is to bring the best mobile computing experience to our users based on their local interest, needs, and context."
