Realme introduced the realme 6 series back in March of 2020, packing some excellent specifications on paper, including the Mediatek G90T on the 6 and the Snapdragon 720G on the Realme 6 Pro, a 90hz display, 64-megapixel ISOCELL GW1 cameras, and tons more. However, the camera optimization on the device doesn’t seem to impress the users. The camera clicks photos with high contrast and saturation, which some people prefer, while others don’t. If you’re looking for an alternative camera application, Google Camera (Gcam) forms an excellent option. This post will guide you on How to Download and Install Google Camera on Realme 6, 6i, and the 6 Pro.
Realme 6, 6i, and 6 Pro Google Camera Features
Google Camera is one of the best camera apps; however, it is only available for the Pixel devices officially made by Google. Thanks to some third-party developers, we now have a working camera port of the Google Camera for the realme 6 series of devices.
- Auto DND Mode:
Google Camera allows users to enable Do not disturb mode while they are recording videos. This is a handy feature, as due to some notification, a recording gets canceled and isn’t even saved. This feature is set to Auto by default, which is, DND will be enabled every time a user starts to record a video.
- Exposure Controls:
While taking photos, adjusting the exposure wasn’t possible before, but with the Google Camera 7.3 build, users can adjust the exposure with the new feature called “Exposure Controls.” This can also be used while controlling the HDR as well.
- Astrophotography Mode:
With this feature of Google Camera, users can click an image of the Milky way with just a single take. This is a handy feature, as the results of the photos look excellent. However, this takes some time, so users need to be patient while clicking the image.
- Social Share:
With Social Share, users can quickly share photos to Social Apps directly from the camera. Users can select up to 3 social apps, and they will be available as soon as they open the phone from the lock screen. This is a useful feature as sometimes, users want to share a photo quickly, but the default camera saves it to the phone’s gallery.
- Cinematic Pan:
Cinematic Pan is one feature that helps to stabilize an image while smooth panning shots. This feature is used while recording videos and is very useful as it makes the video looks more Cinematic. It would be beneficial for users who shoot B-Rolls with their phones.
