The Pixel camera or well known as Google Camera APK for Mi A2 is now available to download which is based on back.rider’s build. This is just a port of Google Camera APK and not the actual stock Google Camera, so you can always expect that all of the features might not be available or just broken!

This GCam APK build was not primarily built for Mi A2, hence it is possible that all of the camera features might not be working well. Never mind to try other Google Camera APK or other Arnova8G2’s Google Camera build from the huge list, if few features do not work on this build!
