It’s always a great feeling when you get any kind of news before anyone else because it gives you more time to adjust to changes and prepare for what’s next. Not only that, but it also sates your curiosity, which for some is a real challenge. That is why some opt to enroll in the Windows Insiders program which grants them access to the preview builds of operating systems. These builds contain all the new apps and app features that Microsoft is preparing to push through. But before they can do that, they need to test said apps and features.

Currently on the Preview version of Windows and Windows Mobile, Microsoft is testing new camera related features, specifically for the Windows Camera app which is intended for both platforms. After the recent update, the app has reached version 2016.1101.11.0. Let’s take a look at what exactly has changed and what can users expect from the upcoming improvements.

First of all, Microsoft tinkered with how HDR photos work in succession. The Windows Camera app will allow you to take up to three different HDR snaps is succession before it proceeds to save photos.

The update focuses primarily on improving the overall user experience and the way users can interact with the app. Microsoft has made the required changes that will allow the app to better serve the user.

Last but not least, we have the expected list of bug fixes. While bug fixes aren’t flashy or particularly exciting, they do improve an app tremendously in both functionality and user experience.

If you’re interested to see what other changes Microsoft is preparing for its users, you can enroll in the Preview program and test put the new Windows Camera app first hand. Being a Windows Insider can prove useful not only for the upcoming update, but also for those that follow, as there will always be changes and features added.
