The app update lets people use their Android Wear as a remote control for snapping photos with their camera or tablet. Users just have to tap a button on their smartwatch to take the picture -- a preview of the photo will even be displayed on Android Wear.
Google launched Android Wear, its new wearables and smartwatch software platform, last month. LG, Motorola, and Samsung have devices on the platform. Google is entering a crowded market for smartwatches, but maybe little perks like a remote for Google Camera could help it keep a competitive edge.
