The new Google camera on your mobile: improve photography with the latest version of GCam

Google recently updated the most popular camera on Android phones, the capture app that comes with Pixels. This version, which amounts to number 8.4, has already been adapted to the popular GCam: It is possible to try the photography of the Pixel 6 on other phones. BSG has created the first mod.

That there is a large community of Android developers has brought from the always welcome ROMs to applications that, despite not being found in the Google Play store, they offer so much quality and number of options that it is well worth installing the APK. Among all the development, the adapted Google camera or GCam is one of the most attractive applications. And it stays remarkably up-to-date.

BSG creates the first GCam of version 8.4

As we said, the Google camera is constantly being developed, both by Google itself and by all the “modders” that release the photography application from their chains. Given the complexity of the modification, adapted google camera doesn’t exactly work well on all android: There will be some that start all the functions, others will see how it hangs as soon as they open it and the portrait or night mode may not work well in the rest. Luck influences too much.

Given how unpredictable the GCam is, the best way to know if it works is to try it. Specifically, BSG, one of the most popular developers, released the first versions of its excellent mod adapted to the latest version of the Google camera, 8.4.

The new GCam adapts the most recent Google camera bringing functions released in the Pixel 6 to the rest of Android; like the different stabilization modes (depends on mobile hardware). Motion mode is not yet available.

From our tests (it has worked even on a Xiaomi Mi A3, with some slowness) the BSG GCam 8.4 has done quite well for us. The results are as expected, we have not suffered closures in most capture modes (yes in the night mode), It has seemed quite stable to us to be from the first versions and allows you to select the interface and base model from the entire list of Pixels, including the most recent ones. In this way it is possible to improve the compatibility.

The best way to find out if this new GCam works or not is to download the APK and try it out: it’s available on Celso Azevedo’s page. It is also worth following the BSG Telegram channel: there it shares the new versions of its adapted Google camera. for now, this first version of GCam is in beta.
