Google Camera is one of the wonders among Android devices. It is the holy grail of Google Pixel smartphones. After all, while other companies are relying on multiple-cameras to deliver high-quality shots, Google Pixels are sustained by powerful software. Pixel smartphones have blessed with this technology thus making them some of the best smartphones in the market for photography. They have official support for advanced features like Astrophotography and portrait mode. Google has recently rolled out the Google Camera App v7.3 with several new features and enhancements. The community is fast, and now we have Gcam 7.3 mod for all Android smartphones.
Back in the last month, we uploaded a tutorial teaching you how to install Gcam 7.3 in all Android smartphones. However, it was restricted to Android 10+ smartphones. Now, a new version of the mod has been developed for devices that are on Android 9 Pie. That basically means that most of the Android devices running Android 9 Pie or Android 10 can try this mod now.
What is Gcam?
In short, Gcam is a mod that aims to bring the Google Camera app to several smartphones and ensure that all features work with them. There are several variations of Gcam. Some are meant for multiple Android devices, while others are made specifically for a single smartphone. Multiple developers are working on Gcam and we have today an active community of users using the Mod.
