From this post, you could download the latest Google Camera 8.1 and GCAM 8.1 Mod APK as well as its earlier build i.e. Google Camera 8.0 and GCAM 8.0 APK. Google recently announced two new additions to its popular Pixel series. Dubbed as the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5, these devices have quite a lot to offer to the masses. While there isn’t the top-most Snapdragon chipset, but still a solid performance is on the cards. Likewise a clean stock OS experience plus the fact that it’s guaranteed to be the first in line for the Android upgrades, well one couldn’t have asked for more.
Furthermore, when it comes to smartphone photography, there aren’t many that could compete with the Pixel series. In this regard, Google Camera apps have always been among the most popular camera apps. Along the same lines, many developers have also modded these GCam APKs for various Android versions and smartphones. And from this guide, you could download the latest Google Camera 8.1 APK. Likewise, we have also shared the Google Camera 8.0 APK that is taken from the Pixel 5 as well as the GCam 8.0 APK Mod. Follow along.
Google Camera and GCAM Features
From this section, you could keep a track of all the latest Google Camera as well as their modded version changelog.
Google Camera 8.1 | GCam 8.1 Mod APK
While Google Camera 8.0 bought in a plethora of new features, with 8.1, there aren’t any substantial changes. But there is one change that is worthy of appreciation. In earlier builds of GCam, the Night Sight was automatically enabled under low lighting conditions, even if the user didn’t want it to.
While you had the option to toggle off this feature, it was temporarily. That is, the next time you launched the app, it would again get enabled under low light. But with the Google Camera 8.1 update, you could permanently disable this feature by disabling the Flash from Settings.
On the other hand, if we talk about the modded GCAM 8.1 Mod APK, there are quite a lot of interesting features that deserve your attention. Here’s the detailed changelog of the same:
- Added all the fixes necessary for the first start
- Added Color Transform to fix saturation on devices with dull colors
- Disabled Sabre on unsupported sensors
- Added an option to disable tracking focus
- Added an option to disable motion photos
- Added OPModes to fix EIS
- Added buttons in the drop-down menu to enable/disable AWB
- Added an option to choose between Pixel 2, Pixel 3, IMX586, and IMX686 AWB

Google Camera 8.0 APK | GCam 8.0 APK Mod
So let’s now get straight to the point. There are two different variants of the Google Camera App that we have shared here. The first one is the Google Camera 8.0 APK that is taken straight from Pixel 5. Since the device is launched with Android 11 out of the box, this camera app will only be supported on Pixel devices running the latest Android OS only.
This is where the open-source ecosystem of Android comes into play. A popular GCam developer, cstark27, has modded the Google Camera that you could install on devices running the older Android build as well. In this guide, we have shared the download link for both the APKs. Proceed with the one that meets your requirements.
How to Install Google Camera
If you are installing apps outside of Play Store (Google Camera 8.0/8.1 APK from APKMirror or GCam 8.0/8.1 Mod), then you will have to enable Unknown Sources on your device. Furthermore, the camera app on APKMirror is uploaded as APK Bundles. On the other hand, the GCam 8.0/8.1 Mod has been uploaded as Split APKS.
To deal with both these file types, you could download the App Manager from the Play Store. Then install it and launch the app. Navigate to the desired Google Camera APK file and select it. Finally, hit the Install button and that’s it. Along the same lines, you could download the Split APKs Installer (SAI) to deal with Split APKS.
