Camera is a lightweight Chrome browser application by Google that brings the simplicity and intuitiveness of the smartphone camera apps directly to your desktop PC, laptop, or best yet, your portable Windows tablet! Built from the ground up to emulate the UI elements and simple tools found in camera apps on modern smartphones, this app will be best suited for users who just want to experience the well-known process of photo capture when they are away from their smartphone device.

Note: This item can only run on ChromeOS.

Once installed on your PC and Chrome browser (which is a very fast procedure for an application that weighs in at just quarter of a single megabyte!), the camera icon will be added to the app section of your Chrome browser (chrome://apps), enabling anyone to quickly bring out camera viewfinder and start snapping pictures from your built-in PC camera or external webcams.

The built-in light editing tools are listed on the very bottom of the window of the app, enabling access to a modest amount of simple swipeable editing features. They include a small number of eye-catching filters such as greyscale, sepia, beauty, newspaper, retro, and swirls.

The entire procedure of photo capture, setting up of camera and light editing is available from the interface that is fully emulating the look and feel of smartphone camera apps. Only instead of finger touches, users can easily use the mouse. The users of touchscreen devices such as laptops and tablets can of course still use their fingers, finally being able to have smartphone-like camera experience on their Windows device.

The app supports switching between multiple cameras (if they are all properly detected by the Windows OS) and has access to some advanced photo features such as camera mirroring, timer capturing, and multi-shot feature.
