Default [Q] google camera no lens blur

hey ,

today i installed Google camera on my xperia u .. but to see it doesn't have features like lens blur and panorama or photoshpere ..

i understand that photosphere requires gyro and since xu does not have gyro maybe it doesn't show up .. but why doesn't features like panorama and lens blur show ?

currently only video and camera show :/ and im sure i have the latest version of the apk

can someone tell me if there is a way to enable those features or is it that xperia u doesn't support them ?

The new Google camera features are completely based on gyroscope. Panorama is based on photosphere and lens blur requires gyro to calculate the movement of the device. Thus none show on non gyro phones.
