Google Camera is a popular app for taking great photos thanks to advanced algorithm created by the company making Android.
The app is originally made exclusively for Google Pixel devices. Thanks to third-party developers, there are now many ported builds compatible for non-pixel phones, including many latest Xiaomi series.
Recently, Urnyx05 which is one of popular Gcam porters has once again managed to port Google Camera v8.1.008.
This is based on GCam 8.1.008, made in collaboration with @cstark27, @Urnyx05, and @johngalt1. This build works on both Pixels and non-Pixels. The build has package name:
The original gcam version is first available on Google Pixel 5.
With release of this ported Gcam build, Xiaomi users around the globe can enjoy the app and all of its features.
Please note, there is no single Gcam port compatible for all Xiaomi Mi, Redmi, or Redmi Note phones.
With the more advanced features the app offers, the hardware specifications needed may also increase.
We cannot guarante it to work with older versions of Redmi series. As long as your phone supports manual / Pro mode, it should also work despite some limitations.
Otherwise, you have to make sure Camera2 API enabled.
Moreover, as noted by its developer, it still won’t work flawlessly on the most recent devices with latest SoC like Snapdragon 845.
