Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL is out and it yet again will bag the best camera on a smartphone. Pixel 2 scored 98 on DxOMark which is well touted by them in their presentation as well. To be honest, we are pretty excited to experience what did they do to reach here. But until the Pixel 2 officially announces in India, we can at-least try out the new features coming with the new camera app right on our old smartphone.
Android users running Android Oreo 8.0 can have the new camera app installed on to their smartphones. The good lads in this world have posted a cracked version of the app on XDA-Developers that can be grabbed here. This shall be limited to Pixel / Pixel XL owners right now and old Google Phones like the Nexus 6P which have got the Oreo update. There maybe some of the early bird Oreo hoppers who installed custom ROMs on to their smartphones, but still we do have an audience who might be interested to try out the new features.
How to install the new Pixel 2 camera app?
As we mentioned above that the app will be limited to Android Oreo 8.0 running users, and some of its features might not even work on non-Pixel devices but there will be some improvements in general performance.
To install the app, grab a copy here and install it right away. This shall bring new features to Pixel/Pixel XL devices including Face Retouching and Motion Photo. However, the AR Stickers are limited to the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL only as of yet.
According to XDA-Developers, the updated app is snappier to use with a higher frames-per-second rate for the viewfinder. Let us know if you find any problems installing the app, as you may know it still is worth it.
