Hello,

I happen to come acros the Google camera app for my phone Poco X3. I got it in this link: https://www.cyanogenmods.org/google-camera/

Is it okay to use the app? Has anyone got any bad feelings about it in this forum?
TIA.

System Configuration: Macintosh / Firefox 95.0

Hi,

Google Camera is a good app and safe to use. However, I recommend you to download it from official or reliable sources. You can obtain this app directly from the Play Store.

If it says that Google Camera is not compatible with your device, try downloading the APK file from APKMirror. You should find an official variant of the app that's compatible.

Regarding the link you've found, it seems that it provides modified versions of Google Camera. Download those versions at your own risk.
