Google Pixel smartphones are considered some of the best in the field of photography and videography. The secret to the success of these devices lies not only (and not so much) in the excellent hardware of the camera, but also in the photo processing algorithms built into the proprietary software. The Google Camera app allows you to unlock the full potential of the cameras and produce impressive shots. And thanks to mods, this app can be installed on any Android smartphone.

More about Pixel Camera (Google)

Basic functionality

Like any similar application, Google Camera is designed for taking photos and videos. However, this application has quite extensive functionality. With Google Camera, you can:

  • Take photos, selfies, and portrait photos with a bokeh effect
  • Record videos (including 4K, if your device allows)
  • Capture time-lapse and slow-motion videos. You can manually choose the desired degree of slow motion and acceleration.
  • Take photos in night mode
  • Create panoramas (including 360-degree 3D panoramas)


One of the significant features of Google Camera is HDR+. Google released this algorithm exclusively for its Nexus smartphones in 2013. The essence of this post-processing mechanism is that a high-quality photo is "stitched" from a series of overexposed, normal, and underexposed photos in an instant. Now, this feature is available on all devices with Google Camera on board.


Despite the fact that the photo processing algorithms are the main advantage of this application compared to analogs, Gcam allows you to customize the camera settings yourself. This is done using XML files. For popular smartphones, modders find the best settings, save them as a file, and share them on forums.

Natural colors

In numerous comparisons with stock camera applications of various devices, Google Camera demonstrates better color balance and detailing of dark areas.

Google Camera is a universally recognized tool for improving the quality of photos. The application's algorithms do not oversaturate colors in most cases and make the details of the photo more clear. Gcam is recommended for anyone who wants to get the most out of their device.
