Google’s Pixel smartphones were launched just a week ago, and many users have pre-ordered their unit already. Google’s Pixel devices come in two variants, the Pixel and the Pixel XL. Both are essentially the same, save for the screen size, resolution of the display, and the battery capacity. Pre-orders are to be shipped out to users soon, and Telstra in Australia has already started shipping out the device to customers. With that being said, it won’t be long before developers port features from the Pixel smartphones to other devices, and it seems like the new Google Camera app has been ported and is able to work with devices running on Android 7.0 Nougat.
People over at XDA Developers have managed to port the latest version of the Google Camera app, which is version 4.2, to work on Android 7.0 devices. At the moment, it has been confirmed that this app is able to run on the Google Nexus 5X, and the Google Nexus 6P. The posting by XDA Developers also points out that since this is a modified version of the Google Camera app, it will not install on top of your pre-existing camera app. It also will not be able to work on non-Nexus devices, so if you have a device other than a Nexus which runs on unofficial Android 7.0 Nougat, the app will not function on your device. Folks over at XDA Developers have also uploaded a security scan report for the APK to Virus Total and NVISO’s APKScan, in order to assure everyone that the app is free from malicious content. Screenshots of the Google Camera app version 4.2 can be viewed in the gallery down below.
