The Google Camera HDR+ is a must-have for Xiaomi Mi A1. With it, the phone’s dual camera works surprisingly well in low light.
But, some users are facing issues with installations of the app. Problems include crashing or failure to open.
I’ve actually put this post together to answer some of the questions I got on a previous post – Install Google Camera HDR+ on Xiaomi Mi A1.
Here, I’ll explain possible fixes. I’ll also list links to working Gcam ports by BSG, Ivanich, and Arnova.
Check your Google camera’s HDR+ settings. Remember to apply the suggestions that come with the Gcam apk download.
Slow motion may not work depending on the ROM your Mi A1 uses.
The media_profiles.xml file is what contains these settings. So, you’ll have to update it. (Download and use this one that’s already done for you.)
There are ports by BSG, Ivanich, or Arnova. Here’s what you should expect from each of them.
