Android Wear devices can now be used as a remote shutter for Motorola phones

Motorola is pushing out a new update to Motorola Camera that allows people to use their Android Wear devices as a remote shutter. One of the benefits of Android is that manufacturers can place pieces of their software in the Google Play Store so that updates can be rolled out quickly to certain features. Motorola is taking advantage of that with its Motorola Camera app and rolling out an update that allows Android Wear devices to communicate with the app and act as a remote shutter button.

Manufacturers have been looking for ways to incorporate Android Wear and Motorola seems to have found a very smart way in which to do that. Using your smartwatch as a remote shutter could help a lot with things such as long exposure shots on a tripod, where you don’t want your camera to shake at all. The update is pretty cool, to say the least.

Have you used an Android Wear device yet? What did you think?
