Recently, Google unveiled its Pixel 6 Series featuring the company’s Tensor chipset and improved specs. Like its predecessors, the Pixel 6 Series also comes with improvements in the camera department. The good news is that like the previous camera, the latest Google Camera 8.3 port can now be installed on your smartphone.

One needs an Android phone running Android 9,10,11 or 12 to download this apk. The camera port currently comes from the Android 12 Beta 4 build, so it is not taken from stable software. It doesn’t work perfectly well as other smartphones don’t have Pixel 6’s hardware too. Some of the features of this camera version might now work on your android phone.
