How to install stable Gcam 7.3 mod in all Android smartphones

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.

Now developers gave a step further bringing the latest Gcam 7.3 with all its features.

Gcam 7.3 app mod features:

  • Automatic DND mode while using video-recording.
  • Re-arranged settings UI.
  • 24FPS video recording.
  • Exposure controls to adjust brightness and HDR of your photo.
  • Astrophotography implemented to Night Sight.
  • Received Frequent Faces to help you capture Top Shot photos.
  • Touch and Hold shortcut in the shutter button to capture Top Shot photos.

How to download and install Google Camera 7.3 in your Android device

The developer parrot043 put his hand in the Google Camera 7.3 app and made several mod variants of the Gcam 7.3 APK. Currently, we are in the MGC_7.3.018 iteration of the mod. parrot043 is continuously working in the mod to make it stable for the largest part of Android smartphones. There are some restrictions though, but the main one involves having support for camera2 API. Moreover, you’ll need to make sure that your device is running Android 9 or above. Gcam 7.3 will not work with devices running Android 8.0 or below, but you can try your luck.

    I am using a Motorola G7 Power, 7.2x installed where 7.3x wouldn’t. I know it’s a beta, the Android Lookout and System did throw up a flag because it couldn’t verify the signature from the software. But hey, it works, so wonderful job!

    I got 7.3 to install on my Moto G7 (normal variety) on Android 9.

    I had to uninstall previous Gcam install (6.2 from xda sub-forum meant for Moto G’s) to get it to install without issue.

    Since install, all functions seem to work, no crashes. Many thanks!

    Are you still running this article? The installation steps are broken and others have had the same issue that the supposedly simple installation is not working because the apk file from parrot and others do not work for the listed devices. Following the directions to install on a note 9 yields absolutely nothing from parrots apk and a second one on the list.
