The best way to upgrade Google Camera for users who own older versions There are several different ways of upgrading older versions of Google Camera to newer ones, but we’ve chosen the easiest one to cover here. The first thing is to just head over to Google’s Download page and select from there which model of device you’re interested in.
Google now offers three models for its flagship smartphones, namely Pixel Alpha/Max, Pixel (2nd Generation), Moto Razr 5G and Motorola Edge. These three models come with preinstalled Google Camera versions, meaning you don’t need to do anything special if you own their respective hardware. We’re going to cover only Pixel (2nd Generation) because, well, it’s our favorite piece that comes alongside the rest, isn’t it?
For starters, make sure your model of choice already has Google Camera installed by heading into Settings > Camera. On this screen, go on to Manage your Camera. Next, tap on “Upgrade Your Phone.” Here, you should see “Pixel Camera Version” listed under that section. Clicking on it will immediately show you which version(s) of camera you need to upgrade and then continue by tapping on Upgrade.
When you’ve completed the process on your own, wait for the option “Upgrade” to appear on the list again. After that, simply restart your phone and confirm that your camera package is up-to-date. As soon as you’re done doing so, install that particular camera on top of whatever you’re currently using. Doing so will automatically update all existing cameras on your device, including those from previous generations too, so keep them updated!
