Google’s Camera app of its Pixel line up is considered as one of the best Camera app on any Smartphone till date, due to its computational photography. Its AI based photo processing algorithm can produce some mind-boggling images and that’s the reason why many tech reviewers as well as users prefer Google Camera.
One of the best things about this Google camera app is that it is not limited to the pixel device and can be installed on several supported devices in the form of Gcam.
Now with the release of Google Pixel 4 series, company has updated the Google Camera app and has added some amazing features like Astronomical mode, transparent UI, enhanced Night Sight, Motion Blur, AR Photobooth, Audio Zoom, and a few other features.
Among all these features the main highlight is the Pixel 4’s new astronomical photography feature which allows you to take some professional DSLR like photos of stars and sky objects. Isn’t cool? and the coolest part is you can enable this feature on any supported android device about which I will explain later.
Now, thanks to the developers for porting this to non-Pixel devices and you can get these amazing features on any supported devices by just installing the Google Camera 7.0 Mod.
