Even though Android phones go through the era with camera hardware today, they may not be able to give what they expected by the camera software. Gcam mode comes to the rescue of users and brings Google Camera features to other Android devices other than Pixel.
Google Camera stands out as one of the best software for Android devices, especially Pixel phones. While phone makers rely on new camera lenses for users to shoot high-quality shots on their devices, Google Pixel phones are supported by powerful software in addition to hardware power.
Google’s camera software has made Pixel smartphones one of the best smartphones for photography. The software provides support for advanced features such as astrophotography and portrait mode. Google recently launched Google Camera App v7.3 with several new features. The Android community has also been quick to release the Gcam 7.3 mode for all Android smartphones.
Gcam is a mod that aims to run the Google Camera app on all Android devices. Gcam has several variations and works on many developers. The developers are now taking Gcam 7.3 a step further with all the new features.
