Google Camera or the Gcam mod is one of the most popular piece of software for Android smartphones. Courtesy of many developers like Arnova, Parrot, cstark, BSG, we now have Gcam mods ranging from v6.1 to the latest Gcam v7.5 or the near stable Gcam v7.4. While smartphones with Snapdragon processors support the Gcam mods quite easily, processors other than Qualcomm’s Snapdragon have a hard time supporting Gcam; best example if Samsung’s in-house Exynos processors. This is because Google camera is primarily developer by Google for the Pixel smartphones, which all comes fitted with Snapdragon processors. Don’t worry, ZGCAM APK comes to the rescue supporting all the Exynos Samsung Galaxy smartphones.
Google camera is quite important because it is a top of the line camera software for Android. Google is a software company and their stock camera app on Pixel smartphones is unmatched until today. With proper support and ports, you can install Gcam on almost any Android device and use features like Night Sight, Astrophotograpy mode, Portrait shots, Google lens, and much more.
Here is the first stable Google camera port for Samsung devices. ZGcam is now available for download for all the Samsung Galaxy devices with Exynos SoC. Now, we all know how poor the support for Samsung Galaxy phones is when it comes to running Google Camera mods. No more! Thanks to developer Zoran who went out of his way and developed a Gcam Mod (called ZGCAM) primarily for Samsung’s global variants.
Moreover, Samsung recently blocked Gcam mod for Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra with the latest One UI 2.5 firmware update. However, the only Google camera that works after this update is the ZGCAM mod!

So download latest ZGCAM v6.1 with build 1149. As for the older devices like Galaxy S8, use the build 1106.
