Google is well known for its Pixel series of devices, especially for their cameras. They do some great software optimization with their Google Camera app, which makes the images look much better. But as it is Google’s proprietary app, other phones can’t use it. However, thanks to the third-party developers as we have different ports for non-pixel phones as well. So this is a guide to download the latest Google Camera 8.1 for all devices.
Why use Google Camera?
Now, a lot of users might be wondering why to use Google Camera when we already have the Stock camera app provided by the manufacturer. The answer to this question is to enhance the pictures. Most of the smartphone manufacturers, especially in the budget segment put a lot of effort in tweaking the hardware and bringing changes to it. But, Google focuses less on the hardware and bring better software optimizations. So we see significant improvements in images taken with Stock vs the Google Camera app. Not only this, but users can also load custom config files to further improve the quality as well.
