These days, smartphone cameras are becoming more proficient in capturing pictures with excellent quality.

Also, the Google camera 8.1 update will be rolling out its new features that Google debuted on the Pixel 4a 5G and the Pixel 5 Night Sight portrait mode, Cinematic pan, and more.
Along with these new features, Google Camera 8.0 also brought a revamped UI with new clicks, a quick zoom toggles, access toggles to video modes, etc. But, the sad news is that these new features and UI will be bounded to Google’s latest Pixel devices only.
While it has been possible to install a new version of the Google Camera app on older Pixel phones, but the process of doing same with v8.0 wasn’t an apple’s pie, it required factory reset. Because of this troublesome, many Pixel owners put themselves off from buying the Pixel 5 version of the Google Camera app.
