Google Camera for Xiaomi Poco M3 - Download and Installation

To install Google Camera on your device, the first thing we need to do is to download the Google Camera APK. APK (Android Package Kit) is a file format that Android uses to install an application. It’s more like an EXE file for Windows, or a DMG file for Mac. However, Google Camera APK is not available in Google Play Store since it’s only exclusive for Google’s Pixel phones, but luckily some developers began adopting it and created a modded version to make it available for other android devices.

We’ve downloaded and tested multiple Google Camera versions for Xiaomi Poco M3 on your behalf so you can just directly download and install the best version available.

Disclaimer: Since it’s a modified version, it may cause issues and crashes on your device. If it’s no longer compatible with your device, you can easily uninstall it and reboot your device, and it won’t cause any permanent issues.

Without further ado, here are the steps on how to install Google Camera on your Xiaomi Poco M3.
