Google Camera for any phone. How to install?

10 January 2023 0 By georgedeveloper22

What is Google known for? Of course, the first thing that almost everyone will remember is a search engine. It is he who brings Google a lot of money and allows us to develop other services, and it is easy for us to navigate the Web. Many will also call Android, because it is the most popular operating system in the world. At the same time, few will remember the company’s achievements in the field of mobile photography. But it is in this area that the company has made huge strides and makes such software for the camera, with which little can be compared. Relatively recently, it became possible to install the Google Camera on third-party smartphones, and not just on the Google Pixel. Now I will tell you how this can be done.

Google Camera

In favor of the fact that the Google Camera is really cool , says the fact that the Google Pixel, which was originally the carrier of this function, took almost the best photos for its time, having only one camera module, and not several, like other manufacturers . Even shots with background blur were good, where bokeh was achieved exclusively by software without the slightest hint of physics and optics.

Actually, thanks to the ability of Google’s software to process images, the Google Pixel camera is one of the best in the industry. The company has official support for advanced features such as astrophotography and more. Google recently released the Google Camera v7.4 app with several new features and improvements. Among them, we can note the long-awaited 4K recording at 60fps. It took quite a bit of time and now we have the opportunity to install Gcam on other smartphones.

What is gcam

In fact, Gcam is a mod that aims to bring the Google Camera app to multiple smartphones and make all the features work with them. There are several variations of Gcam. Some are more universal and can be installed on several smartphone models at once, while others are made for a specific model. There are several developers working on Gcam and an active community of users using the mod.

Installing Gcam is simple, but first consider if you need this application.

Now the developers have taken it one step further by releasing the latest version of Gcam with all the features that users love this mod so much for.

What’s New in Gcam 7.4

  • Quick video resolution change
  • Changing setting items
  • 24fps video recording
  • 4K video recording at 60fps
  • Exposure adjustment to adjust brightness and HDR photos
  • Improved work with faces
  • Enabled support for Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 and 845 processors

How to download and install Google Camera

The developer parrot043 has worked with the Google Camera 7.3 app and made the first modified version of the Gcam 7.3 APK. The new mod is available for almost every Android smartphone . Although there are some limitations, the main thing is the camera2 API support. Moreover, you need to make sure that your device is running Android 10 . Gcam 7.3 will not work with devices running Android 9.0 or below. Try, of course, it is necessary, but the probability of success is negligible.

To add Gcam to your phone, you first need to download its APK from this link . It should be understood that this is a beta version that may not work correctly or simply not run on your phone. And also remember that you unpack all APKs at your own peril and risk, since only the developer knows what he put into the application code.

Once you download the APK , just unpack it and install the app. It will appear on your home screen or app drawer. You just have to run it, give all the necessary permissions and start using it. It’s that simple. The only thing to remember is that you must have permission to install applications from third-party sources. You will be prompted to give this permission during installation if you do not have it.

The Google camera is best placed on Xiaomi right now.

Before installing, make sure everything is fine with the camera2 API on your smartphone. If you don’t know what it is, just type “Camera 2 API Checker” on Google Play and download the appropriate app to make sure your device supports it.

At the moment it is difficult to say which smartphones exactly support this version of Gcam.

Among those applications that should support the new version of Gcam are:

  • Redmi Note 5Pro / 7/8 / 8T
  • Wed А3
  • We 8
  • Mi9Lite (SE) – limited
  • Redmi 5 Plus – HDR does not work on the front camera
  • LeEco LeMax x820 (829)
  • My Note 3
  • Redmi Note9s / Pro – video not working

If you have something to add about this and push our readers to install Gcam or vice versa, dissuade them from doing so, write in the comments.

Thank you for attention!
