Google's recently announced Pixel 3 smartphone managed to wow audiences with its smarts at the launch event. While the photos that we have taken with our review unit do look impressive, they also beg the question as to how a smartphone with single camera is capable of much more than what we have seen with not just dual (iPhone X, Note 9), but even with a triple camera (Galaxy A7, P20 Pro) setup so far.

How does Google Camera work?
In simple terms, Google camera works by taking multiple photos with different settings e.g. exposure, shutter speed ISO, etc and combines it into one image to produce one, stunningly beautiful shot with clear and vivid details.
Great! How can i get it?
Hey there, calm down mate. Getting google camera to work with our device needs some tinkering with the settings of our phone. First you need to enable camera2api which will later be discussed and download the compatible ported Google camera for your device. BUT, if your device has camera2api already enabled, you can install google camera and play with your own settings. Some phones like the Pocophone F1, Redmi Note 7 and Mi8 Lineup already has camera2api enabled.
