The latest version of the Google Camera app, 8.6.263, incorporates Material You UI elements first seen in Android 13 OS. The update is now available on the Play Store and will be released globally in stages. The annual Google I/O 2022 event, like in years before, included demonstrations of the company’s forthcoming software and hardware. In the beginning, there was the Pixel beta programme for Android 13. Gcam 8.6 is mainly derived from the Pixel 7 Series, since it contains traces and source code for the Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro devices.

How to download Google Camera 8.6 APK
Starting with Android 11, Google has released apps in Split APKs (multiple APKs) format. It essentially means that the app is split into different packages including the base and config APK files. This will solve the compatibility issues while helping install apps like the Google Camera APK on any Android device featuring different screen sizes, screen resolution, architecture, and more.
