Google on Saturday, October 14, was on an update spree for its apps and services. Updates have been rolled out to Pixel 2 Launcher, Camera, Photos, Allo and Hangouts.

Google Camera 5.0

Google Camera 5.0 is the latest version of the search giant's lauded tool. With the new update, the Google Camera app of Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL is being rolled out to first-generation Pixel models.

In the changelog, the updated camera app brings features Motion Photo, Portrait Mode, Face Retouching and some improvements. Motion Photo works by recording a short 3-second video clip before taking a picture. Download the Google Camera 5.0 APK.

Goole Pixel 2 Launcher

Another Pixel 2 feature that is made available to Android phone owners is the launcher. Pixel 2 Launcher works quite different from the first-generation launcher. Download the Pixel 2 Launcher APK.

Google Allo

The smart messaging app of the company is also getting a fix. The APK file is 23.47 megabytes in size so there is not much about the update other than performance enhancements for a better chatting experience. Download Google Allo APK.

Google Photos

Google is optimising how the Photos app works. The new update aims to deliver a quicker way to share videos by uploading low-resolution copies and later replace them with the high-resolution versions. Download Google Photos APK.

Google Hangouts

Lastly, Hangouts is getting some minor bug fixes to improve stability and performance. Download Google Hangouts APK.
