    Bought my Pixel 2 because it had the best camera on the market at the time. Used to love this app but like other reviewers, I've also been a victim of it's premature failure. It started with the app lagging at taking photos, then one day the rear camera wouldn't work, then the app started crashing or opening to a black screen. The camera still sporadically works but sometimes it is out of focus. I seem to have the most success getting it to work by asking google assistant to take a picture.

  2. earthwithoutmusic-avatar



    google camera 4pda Ever since the update, my camera hardly works. It is blacked out the majority of the time. If I do manage to get a picture, it has to "process" the image for ten minutes and most of the time it doesn't save the picture. The camera app also doesn't respond and I have to close it out often. I purchased my Pixel phone for it's amazing camera, but the camera app is making it impossible to use.

  3. Laurel-avatar



    google camera apk Only my front camera works. Outside camera hasn't worked for going on 6 months. It looks like almost all other pixel 2 users have the same problem. seems like Google doesn't care about this problem as I have seen no ways to fix this. I wish phone companies cared when older versions of their phones stop working. It seems they don't care because they want to always push people to buy the newest and most expensive version. I get it from a business standpoint, but this strategy doesn't seem right.

    google camera redmi note 7 Well, looks like the new marketing technique has caught up with me. My Pixel 2XL is 3.5 years old and both cameras have stopped working. Tried all the resets etc. Even popped out the SIM and waved the phone over a magnet. It did briefly show an image on a couple of occasions, but still crashed. What's the point of having the best camera software if it just turns off the camera.

    google camera redmi note 8 pro No Front camera and NO RESOLUTION FROM GOOGLE!!!. I too have been having the same problem with the front facing camera over the past month. I did all the above mentioned and was given the same advise to repair it or buy a new phone. Well I can't see how this will resolve the issue seeing that the issue is not our phones but the app and, or its upgrade. C'MON GOOGLE I SEE A LOT OF DISSATISFIED CUSTOMERS!!!! FIX IT OR LOSE US!!!!!!

    google camera poco x3 3/31/21 My camera app just started freezing up and not saving any pictures I'm taking. Says "processing" then doesn't do anything, not even saving the photo. This is unacceptable Google, it's fine to do updates, but don't completely break one of the main features (and highest lauded) on your devices. Your customers deserve better, please fix this. Thank you.

    google camera redmi note 8 Knock on wood, it hasn't crashed yet on my Pixel 3 XL, but it HAS gotten incredibly slow! The reason I came to write this review, though, is that the quality settings have been removed. I can't select whether I want to shoot video in 4k, 720p, etc. anymore. I need this for half the things I video. Also the only photo settings are "high" or "normal" quality? That's some proprietary nonsense. Use terms that mean something cross-platform. A lot of Pixel users rely on this quality camera.

    google camera на xiaomi Love the moving pictures - usually - but lately every time I go to look thru them "trouble loading shots" pops up & I can't continue to edit photos. My camera is used daily... I'm getting so irritated. So much so, that when I replace my phone probably won't get a pixel again. It's kind of rediculous that a phone meant for photos does this & doesn't even let you create your own albums ON THE PHONE. I don't have time to log into my Google photos account to play around with albums.

    google camera redmi note 9 Same as everyone else who has a pixel.. Pixel 4XL less than 6 months old . Main camera and flashlight don't work due to "camera being in use" Tried all of Google's suggested resolutions including a factory reset and nothing fixed the issue. Seems to be a software or hardware issue that google knows about, But refuses to fix. Forcing pixel users to buy a new phone , or deal with the glitch and not have a camera. Will not buy another google phone after this. Very upsetting.

  10. Marcel Gelinas-avatar

    Marcel Gelinas


    google camera redmi note 9 pro It started this past month...constantly crashing on my Pixel 2 XL. The camera app does not work at all. Just opens, and then closes. Doesn't matter if I open it directly, or through any other app. I tested in safe mode and it fails there as well. Cleared cache and storage and restarted the again and it still fails. No new apps installed. I'm jumping ship after years with Google and getting an iPhone since there is no acknowledgement for this problem, and because I'm sick of your low three year update support period.

    ** ADVICE TO THOSE WITH A DEAD CAMERA ** If your camera stopped working recently it's dead. The camera module has been broken by a software update. Don't waste your time with clearing the cache, factory resets, or any other 'solution' you might come across. There is NO solution. Anything you try is a complete waste of time. FYI mine died after the Android 10 update in September 2019. There is no fix coming. Google don't care. You'll have to buy a new phone if you want a working camera.

    Same issue as everyone else. The December update messed this app up. I can't use the front camera and therefore face recognition doesn't work. This causes all sorts of issues. Please fix it. Update: after 3 months and multiple conversation, google admits it is there fault but says I have to pay to get it fixed.

  13. Patrick Campbell-avatar

    Same issue as many others. Pixel 2 back camera stopped working out of the blue. I can occasionally get it back by clearing cache, storage, and uninstalling the app. After a restart and reinstallation I can take pictures and videos using the back, but once I leave the app it stops working again. It affects every other camera app too such as insta and Snapchat. Even tried a third party dedicated camera app. Clearly it's a software bug as the hardware still works with the above steps. Sort it out

    Processing ruins photos. My photos looks terrible after processing. Before processing, the photos looks great, but after processing they look extremely distorted, blurry, oversaturated... basically as if they were photoshopped extremely poorly. It's infuriating I can't keep the photos as they were without processing. There needs to be a feature giving the option to turn the auto processing off. This app is basically unusable with the horrible auto processing.

    Absolutely loved the Pixel 2 when I first got it. Great picture quality but then it stopped working. After research and contacting Google none of the fixes work. The magnet fix works temporarily and I don't want to glue something to my phone, shouldn't have too. I am now looking to switch to iphone 7 or se because I see the problem plagues most Pixels! Sad! You lost an enthusiastic customer, who use to recommend the phone!

    Front facing camera for my 4a is NOTICEABLY blurry. And I actually am someone who's not picky at all about level of detail, especially for vain reasons. But it's just painfully obvious which sucks because Google Pixel's strongest (and for most people ONLY) feature that convinces people to purchase it is for superior Camera/Photo software. Hope you guys figure it out fast.

    Great quality, but warps photos!!! I'm so disappointed that this camera (I have a pixel 4xl) warps my photos if I take them at any sort of an angle. It makes my face look squished and rounder with pretty much all selfies. I wish I could post a side-by-side of a selfie with another camera app vs. Google camera because its almost laughable. PLEASE fix this or at least make it a feature we can choose to turn off!

    Like everyone else, my pixel 2xl is slowly losing everything. First the fingerprint recognition program. ( Which still works on my Pixel 1xl ) and now the camera. The Pixel 1xl was good until the microphone quit working, and bluetooth was my only option. So i gave google another chance and got the 2xl. My bluetooth connection only works for media, my screen stays black when I'm trying talk on the phone, so i can't hang up or use options on recorded calls. Looks like I'm going back to Samsung

    Camera App crashes! SO frustrated! Bought a Google Pixel 4 XL for my son March 2020 & after a few months camera app started crashing and it stopped taking pictures from the rear lens but could still take selfies. Every so often it would work and then suddenly crash again. Appalling for such an expensive phone which my son specifically wanted for the camera! Very disappointed with Google that they're still selling these phones with a useless camera. When are they going to do something?!

    Every time I open my camera when my battery is low my phone crashes and restarts. Thought if I charged it up enough it would be fine. Got it up to 80% and it drained my battery down so low that in the middle of taking a video it crashed. I would have to stay hooked up to the charger to use the camera app and I don't have time for that. This is ridiculous.

    I'm disappointed by yoi guys, camera app keeps crashing and when you take multiple shots the camera keeps processing the the taken shots in background and doesn't allow you to take more shots unless the previously taken images are processed fully. The app is not consistent at deleting the photos from within the camera app. When you delete the picture it keeps showing and sometimes it doesn't go to next photo, everytime I have to go back to main camera screen from gallery.

    Very clearly, it seems that everyones front facing camera has stopped working. Mine has as well. I talked to Google support for over two hours tonight and kept trying to tell them that there seems to be a very obvious problem with the camera app and they continually told me that my only option was to take it in a pay for a repair or just buy a new phone. I'm incredibly disappointed. Google needs to FIX the app instead of asking their customers to pay for problems that they created. Shame on you

    Rear camera stopped working out of nowhere. This was the best camera I ever had and google gives me no answers and tells me I'm out of luck. My phone is still in new condition. I'll never buy another google product again. Also- I keep coming back to these reviews to see so.many other having the same issues... this is not my first review.. they deleted my first review I had left a day earlier. I bet the 3.3 rating would be a lot lower at this point.

    On Sunday March 21st, my back camera was working just fine. Now, the back camera is blurry despite clearing the apps storage and cache over and over when that seemed to initially correct the problem. I'm a content creator and need the back camera to work properly. I need to be about half a foot away for the camera to work properly. Why hasn't there been a fix for this yet?

    FIXED via SAFE MODE * Face Unlock stopped working and days later Front Facing Camera did not work (not detected by other apps that can look at hardware). Many things tried including clearing caches, rolling back app update, etc. Face unlock seemed to break after March 2021 system update, but camera failed a days later. Fixed by rebooting into SAFE MODE (hold Vol down after after you see Google logo on boot). Tried the front facing camera and it works! Boot back into normal mode, Face Detect ✅

    I have a pixel 2 and My rear facing camera also stopped working! I tried all of the troubleshooting tips and none of them have resolved the issue! My selfie camera was working until I tried to clear the cache and uninstall and reinstall the updates to the camera and now it won't work either! What's the deal Google? I keep seeing more and more people with the same issue as me.

    Google pixel 4a rear camera has stopped working. Occasionally it will open but won't focus on anything. EDIT: it's now just a black screen.

    Rear/Back camera broken. The rear camera jitters all the time and makes phone to restart all the time. I had to disable the camera software to keep using my phone. This is absolutely unacceptable for the price I have paid for the phone and especially because i bought it for the camera

    As of 03.27.21 my rear camera in the middle of zooming in, decided to freeze and now encounters the "Something Went Wrong" pop up and no longer works (Pixel 4 XL).

    I upgraded from Pixel 1 to get this on Pixel4? Selfie camera hdr+ is bad, blurry face datail, dark overall picture. Videos are worse too on main camera, especially in the dark conditions. I'm so disappointed. How it can be that 2016 device is taking better pictures and shooting better video. Some people say that it was good in 5th version of gcam. Better to fix image quality, not fancy autofocus and stuff.

    I am this close to a class action lawsuit. I depend on my camera app for work since I work in media. I have no desire to buy a brand new phone just because the camera app is failing. FIX IT Prior to the updates, it is a decent app. However, app still not working after update on March 5th, 2021. I cleared the cache. I turned the phone off and then turned it back on. I'm still getting an error message that something went wrong.

    Not many manual features provide to make your photos more professional. Shutter speed, exposure, white balance would be nice to work with. A bit disappointed that they don't release an update. Other wise it takes good photos.

  35. AndTea-avatar



    When deleting a photo. It shows the wrong photo that comes up next. There is a 4 second delay for it to show the correct one. When taking a photo and then tapping on it, after processing it goes to a grainy blurry picture unless I exit out and go back to the picture.

    3xl rear camera stop working suddenly. Factory reset will not work because I did it twice. Installed a new camera lens/module DID NOT work. So at this point possibly software or something more sinister with the motherboard. 3/9 update now both front and back cameras stopped working, just black screen; no more message "Something went wrong".

    Recently I have received latest Google Camera update which includes the following: 1. Night sight in portrait & camera mode. 2. New Video Stabilization modes. 3. New Zoom buttons. No changes received after updating the app. While contacting Team Pixel thru Google One chat support, their executive was not even aware abt. this update & they were unable to help. Team Pixel, plz look into the matter for such things to not repeat in future. Disappointed by the Google One support. They are HOPELESS

    after this new update back camera is not crashing any more on my pixel 2 xl, but sometimes back camera can't focus so you need to turn off your camera and back on and than focus is working. If you fix this problem with focus everything will bi just fine like before this unnecessarily updates! thank you!

    Couple of days ago, I went to take a picture, I got a processing notice for over an hour. It's been a black screen ever since. I don't know what stunt they pulled on the 12th (the last time it updated) but clearly it crashed everyone's cameras.

  54. L-avatar



    Another update = front camera starts crashing again. It is definitely software issue! If this is anything like the past 3-4 times... It only happens after an update...lasts a few weeks to a month then magically starts working again...get your life together Google!

    Loved my pixel 2 until the rear camera stopped functioning for no obvious reason. And I see it's not just me. Looking for an answer as it's affecting my day to day work, payments, etc. Even factory reset didn't help. Front camera works fine

    Hate It. Can't change settings. Settings aren't in portrait mode but all pictures look like portraits. Can't have the whole picture crisp. It only focuses on one thing making everything else blurry. Terrible!!

    A couple of days ago my rear camera stopped working on my Pixel 4XL. Won't let me change it. Only wants to take selfies. It is affecting my stock flashlight app, says camera is in use, so it won't come on. Was on with Google & no resolve. Frustrating.

    The latest update has serious memory issues only one out of every 10 photos is actually saved This is ridiculous Google.. I'm starting to think my next phone will not be a pixel. You promised to support this device for 3 years. Your updates are breaking things. Not cool Google. Not cool.

    For those of you who are rating the app poorly due to the rear facing camera malfunction, it's not an issue because of this app. It's a hardware malfunction due to a Google update. It is something that has been repaired on my phone after 6 months, so fingers crossed for everybody else as well.

    Pixel 2 camera stops suddenly working. When supported Google support team, they tell to raise repair for out of warranty device. As many are having same issue, why they are asking to go for repair and pay for it when certainly it is not any damage caused users.

    Still have not found any other software camera app for Android that is even remotely close to Google's camera app. And if it is hard for you to keep hands perfectly still when videotaping or capturing long still photos, this is definitely your camera app. Learn to port it on other phones as well

    I am another victim of Google's software update that caused the camera to stop working on my Pixel 2XL. Google has insisted I pay money out of my own pocket to have it fixed by a phone repair shop. It's not broken Google. They have failed to read all these negative reviews about Pixel owners not being able to use their cameras anymore after the update. Please go to Google's Facebook page and voice your concerns there because obviously anything that is left here isn't being reviewed.

    The camera app worked great at first. Then it stopped working and wouldn't open. So, I went to my service provider and they showed me how to reset the phone which helped the camera work again. This happened several times. Now, the app crashes when opening and whatever I do will not fix it. I contacted google for help and received the absolute worst customer service experience of my life. I couldn't imagine being any more displeased with product and company. Buyer beware!

    One minute the camera works, the next minute it only opens up a black screen, then shuts down the program after a few seconds. No fix seems to solve the issue. If this is Google's idea of offering a quality product, then it seems all they are in the business of is swindling you with flashy products that make it difficult to work with other programs, and ultimately fail. It is probably through their practice of designed obsolescence, which other companies do as well, which probably led to this.

    There's nothing wrong with the old zoom button locations. There was nothing wrong with the location of the zoom before that and before that. Why do you keep changing them? just for the sake of change? stop messing with the app and just leave it alone. you're making it worse every time you touch it. Why don't you make it so it takes a picture of our face and send that along with our location to the FBI & Homeland Security every time we open the app? Oh wait! It already does!

    Pixel camera result was supposed to be top notch, the sole reason to buy pixel 4a. To my surprise, on screen, the pic looks quite good but, as soon you zoom in the pic, reality emerges. Where is the sharpness? Even with the photo clicked from like 2 feet distance, the images are blurred - not sure what is it trying to focus...!!! Need an urgent fix.

    At first it was really ok. My pixel 3A is a new one I just bought. Pictures were perfect. Than I tried astrophotography...I believe it broke the camera auto white balance or something. Or maybe the app is being confused now. Now with some light sources my google camera has a blue light instead...also night sight seems to be darker I believe...this app may be too much for older phones and older hardwares...
