Download Google Camera 7.0 for Moto G8 Plus


A working build of Google Camera 7.0 for Moto G8 Plus is now available to download. Reportedly this GCam 7.0 on Moto G8 Plus works pretty well including working night sight and astrophotography mode. This GCam is based on parrot043’s build.

This is just a port of Google Camera APK and not the actual stock Google Camera APK, so you can always expect that some or all of the features might not be available or might be broken!

It is important to know that other Google Camera APK may work on Moto G8 Plus and this is not the only one.

How to enable Astrophotography on Moto G8 Plus’s Google Camera 7.0 APK:

First enable the Use astrophotography Mode in the settings. This setting alone is not responsible for astrophotography mode. Following are some conditions that must be met too.
There are few things required primarily to capture in Astrophotography mode:
– It can be enabled on Night Sight mode
– The phone must be kept static (use a tripod or keep the phone somewhere to keep it static)
– There must be low light condition
– It may take few seconds for this mode to come up when the above conditions are met

The photo has to be taken when the “Astrophotography is on” (or instead of this it may show as capture cuttlefish or something like that) is shown on the view finder. When I kept the phone static in front of an ample light source, the Astrophotography mode did not turn on.

Astrophotography on Moto G8 Plus Camera 7.0

I used a tripod to keep the phone static and when I exposed the phone to low light conditions the atrophotography mode automatically turned on and flashed on the screen. Below are some of the photos I have taken when the Astrophotography mode is ON.

It takes 30 seconds to capture one image in this mode.
