Hello Mi Fans,
Google Camera "GCam" for Android is the best ever camera application developed by Google basically for Google Pixel Devices but now it is ported for many other device. It is a trending application which is known for its portrait shorts and natural colors contrast. Google Camera ports have become very popular in between Mi Fans too, as many see them as an easy way to dramatically improve picture quality on a wide range of devices. With the ported Google Camera app, you can use Google’s superior HDR+ optimization as well as their Portrait Mode on your non-Google device. However, Google Camera requires Camera2 API support to work, which makes this otherwise-easy fix require a few more steps in order to function properly.

Most Xiaomi devices in the past have lacked Camera2 API support out-of-the-box. To enable the API, most Xiaomi devices require either root to modify their build.prop, or just an unlocked bootloader to run fastboot commands. Some recent devices like the POCOPHONE F1, Redmi Note 7, Redmi Y3 etc have Camera2 API support enabled by default by Xiaomi, which removes the need to unlock the bootloader, root the device or install any Magisk modules to use Google Camera. Once a Google Camera port is available, end users can simply install the app and enjoy the improvements in image quality.
