Even though it does not have a particularly sophisticated camera setup, the Pixel smartphone consistently takes photographs of very high quality. Obviously, things have gotten better with the release of the Pixel 6 Pro, but the search giant is still in the early stages of exploring the telephoto landscape. Despite this, both the Pixel 5 and the Pixel 4 were always among the greatest gadgets in terms of their photographic capabilities. What is the key? The Google Camera, more commonly referred to as GCam, along with its sophisticated imaging algorithms, HDR+, and other features.
Even in this day and age, the Google camera is one of the most notable features of the Google Pixel smartphones. After all, the fantastic photographs are a direct result of the algorithms that are used by the program. Recent rumors suggest that the camera on the Pixel 7 series will not see significant advancements when compared to previous models. The Pixel 7 Pro may use the same configuration as the Pixel 6 Pro. On the other hand, we anticipate significant enhancements to be included in the following edition of Google Camera. Google is going to continue “doing its thing” to make the Pixel an incredible device for photography by utilizing the GCam.
A tutorial utilizing the GCam 8.4.6 mod was made available on our website a few months ago. The moment has come to test out and play around with the newest version of GCam, which the developer BSG has termed 8.5.300.
What actually is GCAM?
The acronym GCam, which stands for Google Camera, is a well-known moniker for Google Camera that has been formed by the customs community for several years. The community is one of Android’s most impressive features, and over the past few years, GCam has grown into a robust community owing to the efforts of many skilled developers. The developers came up with several different strategies to broaden the compatibility offered by Google’s Camera App for Pixel devices. As a result of their efforts, it is now possible to install Google Camera on a variety of devices, including those manufactured by Xiaomi. Multiple developers have contributed to the creation of numerous GCam mods, each of which has extensive settings and options. Because of this, you have a wide variety of possibilities to try out and select the one that functions optimally with your gadget.
The overall goal that the developers are striving toward with this MOD is to provide “Universal” compatibility. There is a possibility that your device will not support all of the features. On the other hand, several essential features, like HDR Enhanced, are often supported by the vast majority of mobile devices.

The latest version of the update is available, just like it was for prior versions, for virtually every Android smartphone. However, there are certain limitations, the most important of which is the requirement to have compatibility with the camera2 API. In addition to this, you will need to ensure that your device is at least running Android 10 before continuing. After all, the Gcam 8 base will not function with any devices running an earlier version of Android than Pie. Having said that, you always have the option to test your luck with this update.

Users who are still operating outdated versions of Android – You can give Gcam version 7.3, 7.2, 7.1, or any other mod that is compatible with your version a try by downloading it.
