GCam 8.1 Mod is the same camera application used on the Google Pixel devices. Since its launch, one of the main selling features of Google Pixel devices are their cameras.
Pixel devices produce excellent camera quality and are away ahead of their competitors in terms of camera.
Other OEMs depend on dual, triple, or even quad cameras to produce excellent shots. Google Pixel devices depend on powerful image processing software and hardware to produce excellent images.
Their image processing software is the best on the market when it comes to high-quality photography. Google Pixel offers features like high-resolution video recording, AI-Powered HDR, Astrophotography among many other camera features.
Their camera application and image processing software are only available for Google devices only. But one of the benefits of Android is that it is an open-source project. There are many developers who are working to grow this community.
Previously there was a GCAM 8.0 Mod that became quite famous in the android community especially for those who do a lot of photography on their android devices.
Now the developer has updated the 8.0 Mod to the GCam 8.1 Mod for Android devices. As usual, the new update brings us a lot of interesting features, bug fixes, and many improvements. This GCam 8.1 Mod has been developed by the Android developer “Arnova8G2”. He has been an active contributor to the GCam project.
Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 5a have been announced for this year and both of these devices will launch with the latest GCam version. Most of the features of GCam 8.1 Mod have been extracted from the Google Pixel devices.
GCam is a camera mod ported from the google pixel camera application for any android smartphone. Its main purpose is to offer all the camera features to other android smartphones which are only google pixel exclusive. GCam is available in different variants. Some variants are developed for a specific smartphone and will only work with them. While some variants are developed for general purpose and will work with most smartphones.
There are many android developers, who are currently working on this GCam project and are active contributors to GCam Mod. There is also an active community of users who use this GCam Mod in their respective devices.
