Default Bleed 02 Camry Brake (with ABS)

This evening as I drove my wife's 02 Camry, I felt that the brake
seemed gotten more spongy. I guess it's time to bleed it, since it's
never been done. I have bled non ABS before, but not with ABS. Are the
jobs different? Any special scanner or some special device needed for
the job with
ABS ?

TIA

The last thing I would think is air is in the system, or something
bigger is wrong, you just need new brakes.

For over a decade now Toyota (Camry) has been using Bosch ABS version
5.x. Not sure if Toyota shelled out the money for the Bosch ABS 8
systems. Even if Toytoa says no need, Larry Carley of Brake and Front
End says otherwise:

"If the ABS lamp is on, you’ll have to use a scan tool to pull the
trouble codes. The catch here is that you must have the appropriate
scan tool software to access the ABS codes, otherwise you won’t be
able to read them. A properly configured scan tool will also allow you
to exercise the BPMV solenoids, check pressure hold and release
functions, check the ABS lamp circuit, activate traction control, do
other system tests and bleed the BPMV." -Larry Carley

Bosch Invented the ABS system in 1978, first used on Mercedes S and
BMW 7 series:
