Missing official Google Camera on your Pixel or Pixel XL? This can happen after installing a custom ROM as they don’t usually come with Google Camera. If you have trouble, you can always manually download and install the official Google Camera APK for the Pixel, simply use the download link below, download the Google Camera APK file, then install with a File Manager app such as ES File Explorer.
Why download Google Camera APK? Because if you want to take advantage of Google Camera’s HDR mode on the Pixel, you will definitely need to use the official Google Camera app as the phone relies on its processing to give you crystal clear photos in low-light. Of course, if you do not need to have the best photos in low-light, you can use any other camera app but it is good to have the original Google Camera app when installing a new custom ROM so definitely install it just in case.
