Google launched two new flagship smartphones – the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro earlier this month at the #MadeByGoogle ‘23: Keynote Event. The new Pixel 8 series comes with tons of new features and software upgrades. The most anticipated is the new Google Camera 9.1. Here, download the latest Google Camera v9.1 APK from the Pixel 8 Pro with a new user interface, revamped controls, new Ultra HDR +, and much more.
Last month, we published the new Google Camera 9.0 from the Android 14 firmware update for the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro devices. GCAM 9.0 also rolled out to the older Pixel devices with new features.
This includes the most notable revamped user interface (UI) for switching between camera modes. The new camera app includes a toggle to switch between Photo and Video modes thus streamlining the photo and video shooting experience.
The UI has been further refined in the latest Google Camera 9.1 by revamping controls for “Brightness,” “Shadow,” “White Balance,” and “Exposure” catering to video enthusiasts. Whereas, the enhanced adjustments for “Speed” facilitate seamless transitions in slow-motion and time-lapse footage.
The all-new “Night Sight” feature now resides discreetly in a dedicated section at the bottom, conveniently accessible through the newly introduced button in the lower right corner.
Exclusive to the Pixel 8 Pro, this section also hosts advanced ‘Pro’ settings, including ISO and shutter speed, offering a comprehensive toolkit for photography aficionados.
Revamped Quick Settings now feature a sleek bottom sheet menu, replacing the previous floating window design.
Furthermore, GCAM 9.1 adds a new option in advanced settings called ‘Rich color in photos’. This option enables using the Display P3 format instead of sRGB, allowing devices to capture vibrant, wide gamut color images in JPEG format, all without the need for 10-bit HDR.
GCAM Ultra HDR Feature
The Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro are the first Android phones to capture photos in Ultra HDR. This is an innovative new featrue exclusive to Pixed devices and may evrywell change the course of mobile photography.
Google also put out an explanation of Ultra HDR image format, a fresh take on the standard JPEG format.
Ultra HDR+ helps your photos look their best by bringing out vibrant colors, brighter highlights and darker shadows.
Google Camera 9 Features
Google Camera 9.1 update reorganizes the order of the camera modes, eliminating the need for the “More” tab, resulting in a more intuitive and accessible camera app.
Reorganized Photo and Video Modes
In Google Camera v9.0, photo and video modes are now neatly organized into tabs for easy access. Here’s a breakdown of the reorganized tabs:
Photo mode tabs:
- Action Pan
- Long Exposure
- Photo (main)
- Night Sight
- Photo Sphere
Video mode tabs:
- Video (main)
- Slow motion
- Time Lapse
This new organization makes it easier for users to quickly switch between different photography modes, ensuring they capture the perfect shot every time.

Google Camera v9.0 adds video stabilization modes to the Quick Settings panel.
Quick Settings Panel Enhancement
The Quick Settings panel now opens by simply swiping up, enhancing the overall usability of the camera app. Additionally, the shortcut button has been moved to the bottom left corner for more convenient access.
Zoom Slider for Pixel 6
The new update adds the much-needed zoom slider, previously exclusive to the Pixel 7, to the Pixel 6. This feature allows for effortless zooming while shooting, giving users greater control over their compositions.
Front Camera and Gallery Buttons Swap
The buttons to switch to the front camera and open the gallery have been swapped, making it convenient for users to access these functions.
Updated Themed Icon
Google Camera v9.0 features a new icon! The updated themed icon adds a fresh look to the app.
Android 14 Support
However, Google Camera 9.0 has a minimum SDK version 34 (corresponding to Android 14). This means it is only compatible with the latest Android operating system. For Android 13 support, stay tuned for GCAM 9.0.
Google Camera 9.1 APK Download
Here download the latest Google Camera 9.1 (arm64-v8a) (nodpi) (Android 13+) APK extracted directly from the Play Store.
Starting with Android 11, Google released apps in Split APKs (multiple APKs) format. This means the app is split into several packages including the base and config APK files. This solves the compatibility issue and helps install apps like the Google Camera APK on any Android device featuring different dpi, screen resolution, screen size, architecture, and more.
Hence, the package size also increases. The previous Google Camera APK we listed weighed a whopping 200 MB in size before installation.
