How to install Gcam 7.4 mod in all Android smartphones


Google Camera is one of the wonders among Android devices. It is the holy grail of Google Pixel smartphones since 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 photography market. They have official support for advanced features like Astrophotography and many others. Google has recently rolled out the Google Camera App v7.4 with several new features and enhancements. Among them, we can headline the long-expected 4K@60fps recording. The community is fast, and now we finally have a working Gcam 7.4 mod for all Android smartphones.

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. There multiple developers working on Gcam and an active community of users using the Mod.

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 10.

  • Done!
  • If you run an old version of Android, you can try and download Gcam 7.3, 7.2, 7.1, or any mod that is compatible with your version.

    As long as it fixes the horrid portrait video problem & makes it so only proper landscape aspect ratio video is shot then maybe it will be useful to those idiots who don’t get the concept of not wasting screen space by holding their phones wrong to shoot video.

    Just installed it on my Motorola G Stylus. Works great so far. Haven’t figured out if I can make use of the alternate lenses with this software but the main shooter works better with this app anyhow!
