The Android operating system the leading mobile OS in the world. Almost all the devices these days run on Google’s mobile platform. However, it is not common for OEM’s to abandon android devices and not offer any or all version updates. However, Google, the creator of Android, is another story. The company not only offers the latest OS updates to its devices but also offers app revamps.
As such, the company is now planning to introduce a new version of Google Camera with every Pixel device’s launch. We already know that the company launched the Google Camera 8.0 with new UI buttons and features along with the Pixel 5.
A Twitter user Kelvin Peralta states that the new update came with Play Store Version 8.1.008.341125824. He has also allegedly shared a screenshot of the Google Camera 8.1 UI on his Pixel 4 XL. The camera comes with a Cinematic Pan that helps stabilize video while panning(swivel horizontally) for shots.
Further, Kelvin says that it’s possible that Google decided to revamp the App directly with a new version. However, if all the other features of Camera 8.0 like Night Sight portrait quick zoom and quick access toggle in Video will be available is yet to be known.
According to sources, the new Google Camera 8.1 App also doesn’t seem to support sideloading. And an error relating to verification pops up while trying to do it. Hence, for now, it won’t be available for other devices.
