Download Google Camera 7.0 APK for Your Device

Few Points to Keep in Mind
- Your Android device must have Camer2API support to run the latest GCam 7.0. To check the compatibility, download the Camera2 API Probe (Free) and open it. If it shows “LIMITED”, “FULL” or “LEVEL_3” then you are good to go.
- Further, your device must be on Android Pie or the latest Android 10 version. Almost all the modded APKs are based on the newer APIs.
- I have done my testing on Redmi K20 Pro and it worked pretty well. However, I have also provided GCam APKs for other devices based on similar hardware and developer support. Hopefully, it should work for the most part.
- As it’s with all GCams, some features might work on one device and may not work on the other. So, you will have to try different configurations under the Settings page to get the optimal result.
- All the GCam 7.0 APKs are based on the dogfood version leaked from the Pixel 4. Since it’s a pre-production build, many features are experimental and can change after the official release. So stay tuned with us for the stable Google Camera 7.1 APKs.
Install Google Camera 7.0 on Any Android Device
1. Download the particular Google Camera 7.0 APK for your device from the links in the above section and install it on your device.
2. It may block the installation since the APK has been downloaded from a third-party source. However, to continue, tap on “Allow” and proceed with the installation.
3. That’s it. Now open Google Camera and you should be greeted in the new GCam 7.0 interface.
Enable Astrophotography Mode
1. On some devices, the astrophotography mode may not work out of the box. So to enable it manually, swipe down on the viewfinder and tap on the “Settings gear” icon. After that, scroll down and go to “About”.
2. Here, open the “Advanced Settings” and then search for “cuttle”. Make sure, these flags are turned on.
3. Now, if you switch to the Night Sight mode, it will prompt you to activate the astrophotography mode. However, keep in mind, you will need a tripod and a dark place to activate this feature. If you have a steady hand or can place the device on a stable surface then you can do away with the tripod.
