Microsoft updates Lumia 900 series camera with panorama option

The Windows 10 Anniversary Update is coming soon, and with that we’re beginning to learn more about what we should expect. If you’re one of the many Lumia 900 series owners, then be prepared because Microsoft just made the camera on your device a lot better.

Don’t go in expecting better quality photos or videos because that won’t change. However, if you’re into panoramic photos, then this update is right up your alley. The company is currently rolling out panorama support to Lumia 900 owners in the Windows Insiders program.

Microsoft made it very easy to get to the panorama mode: Just swipe right and voila, you can now take panoramic photos with ease. We understand this new feature is much easier to use than Photosynth.

Want to see what this bad boy can do? Microsoft’s own Brandon LeBlanc released a few photos to show off the new functionality. In this instance, the Lumia 950 was used to take the photos and they look good.

Bear in mind this feature can also be used on Microsoft’s newer Surface devices, though we do not believe users are interested in using a big tablet to take photos unless they have no other option.

Download the app right now from the Windows Store.

Microsoft is looking to have more apps on the Windows 10 platform and as such, the company is trying to convince iOS developers port their content to Windows 10. Many have done so already, but fans are still holding out for the popular apps. Pokemon GO is one of those apps but gladly, Microsoft is also working to get it up and running on Windows 10.

If you’re not interested in waiting, follow this guide to get the game running on your Windows PC.
