T-Mobile has issued the EYE Experience update for its variant of the HTC One M8 flagship smartphone. The new camera focused software offers a slew of new features and launched on the Desire EYE two weeks ago, but will find its way to most HTC handsets in the coming weeks and months.

The international variant of the One M8 has already received the EYE Experience update and now T-Mobile is getting the ball rolling in the United States. The update weighs in at 225 and is packed on HTC's version of Android 4.4.4, while we are hearing that it takes a good 15 minutes to install the software once it has been downloaded.

You should be getting the update over the air, but if not you can always tap it up directly by heading to Settings > About Phone > Software updates > Check now. While you are waiting for the patch to come through, here's what you can expect from HTC EYE Experience:

HTC Eye Experience

AUTO AND VOICE SELFIE: Taking selfies just got a whole lot easier. Simply raise your phone, smile, and snap a picture or shoot a video by using your voice.

ENHANCED GROUP VIDEO CALLS: Experience a better way to video chat with Face Tracking. Sitting perfectly still is no longer necessary, because all you have to do is stay in frame and Face Tracking will automatically focus in on you. Compatible with most live video services such as Skype, Line, Hangouts, WeChat, and more.

SPLIT CAPTURE: Get in on the fun and give your pictures a personal touch with Split Capture. This cool new feature uses the front and back camera to combine both perspectives into one unique photo.

CROP ME IN: Ever wish you could put yourself into one of your photos? Now you can with the HTC Eye Experience's Crop-Me-In tool. Easily create one seamless photo when you simultaneously shoot a picture with the front and back camera, then combine them. For the finishing touch, use the Photo Editor to move, scale and crop your picture.

FACE FUSION: Get a hilarious glimpse of what two people merging into one would look like with the magic of Face Fusion. Choose two pictures to mash together and use the control bar to adjust how much resemblance appears in your new creation. You can even incorporate pictures you find online.

LIVE MAKEUP: Take the perfect selfie every time with the Live Makeup effect. Just choose an effect that suits you best and set up your desired look before you even snap the picture.

PHOTO BOOTH: Stylize your selfies with the retro appeal of photo booth pictures. This feature captures 4 pictures on a single image, giving you a unique look that's easy to share with family and friends.
