Windows 10 Mobile’s default camera app will reportedly get the Panorama feature soon and while we still don’t know when exactly it will arrive for Windows 10 Mobile, it should be available to current flagships, the Lumia 950 and the Lumia 950 XL,  first.

WindowsBlogItalia posted leaked photos of this feature a few days ago. Besides showing us a few screenshots of the Panorama option along with a photo taken with this feature, WindowsBlogItalia also provided some additional details about the Panorama mode in Windows 10 Mobile’s default camera app.

As we already said, the feature should arrive for Microsoft’s flagship phones first, but it also should make its way to other Windows 10-compatible devices later. We don’t know if the feature will arrive in some of the future builds for Windows 10 Mobile Preview, but we assume it will be ready before the Anniversary Update rolls out to Windows 10 Mobile users.

Windows 10 Mobile’s default camera app should get a Panorama mode button, which will activate this feature when tapped. When you tap the Panorama mode button, hold your phone vertically, and move it from side to side, to catch the panoramic image. When moving the phone, the camera will take multiple images and combine them together into one panoramic picture.

This feature became pretty popular in newer Android phones, and the majority of them now come with this feature pre-installed. So, we’re sure that users of Windows 10 Mobile will also welcome it. There are a few third-party apps that allow you to take panoramic pictures with your Windows 10 Mobile device, but most of them don’t work properly. The default feature will certainly do the better job taking panoramic pictures.

Tell us: What do you think about the Panorama mode in Windows 10 Mobile? Will you use it when it eventually arrives for your device?
