  1. Whitney M-avatar

    Increasingly glitchy. Don't switch from "Camera" mode to "Portrait" mode and back. This tends to kick me out of the app altogether and has multiple times. Don't use flash while listening to an audiobook. Not sure if that one is a fluke. And don't panic when it takes waiting for over five minutes for photos to appear in your Google Photos app. It used to be pretty immediate, but isn't anymore. And editing from the camera app has been slow.

  2. Hogan Milligan-avatar

    apk I've honestly never had an issue with the app until the past month or so (June 2020), when the camera quit entirely. I and many other pixel 2 users have had this problem lately and it needs to be fixed. I personally bought this phone largely for the camera; it's a great piece of tech, but Google needs to get this figured out. I'll update my rating when my camera works again.

  3. Ryan Carrillo-avatar

    app Over the last two to three weeks, since the June update, the app is complete garbage. I literally can't even open the camera. The selfie camera works pretty consistently, but the front facing one displays a black screen, then the app itself crashes. I can't even open the camera app. I can use other apps to access the camera, and they report that the front camera is not working. Then I will randomly have a few hours where it works just fine. Don't tell me this is a hardware issue. It's *not.*

  4. Briebrie1997-avatar

    go I got this phone less than a month ago and now the camera doesnt work at all! I tries other camera apps and none of them work. I tried to look up a solution, but see that this has been an issue for a lot of Pixel 4 owners since this phone came out. Fix it! Update: Reached out to Google about this and nothing done still! The biggest draw of the Pixel is the camera, I won't be wasting my money on another one of these.

  5. Duane Elsbury-avatar

    port Was a great camera and took great photos and video. Earlier this month after an update it just stopped working. The camera opens up and the screen stays black and then it just closes. I contacted google and did everything they recommend even the factory reset. Nothing made the camera work. After the reset they told me i need to take it to a repair shop to have them look at my phone to fix it. But after reading other reviews i see everyone else is having the same problem I am. Google, fix this!

  6. Olivier Sylvain-avatar

    apk android 10 Used to be great. Then a few updates ago, the app crashes immediately at launch 98% of the time. It makes the camera unreliable, because you need to restart the app 25 times. There was your picture opportunity, it's been gone 3 minutes ago. This is running on a Google Pixel 2 phone, so you would expect Google can get their camera working on their own hardware, but no.

  7. M.-avatar

    apk android 9 As of 6/16/2020 my camera won't open. My selfie camera will only work in other apps but not my actual camera. If I do get it to work it work for a split second and then it force closes. FIX THIS PLEASE!!!!!!! I bought this phone for the camera!!! I can't seem to get it to work any other way. I've literally done everything! Please HELP!!!!

  8. Derek Harlan-avatar

    mod Camera app is broken. Camera opens to a black screen and then the app crashes. No fix in sight. Due to multiple reports of the same thing leads me to believe it's an issue with the software that Google SHOULD fix. Update 5/20/20: New update worked until I opened night sight and then it returned to black screen and crash. Keep working at it Google and I'll change the review. Update 6/20/20: Same problem. Even booted in safe mode, still broken. Have cleared cache and force stop multiple times.

  9. Nelson Cherry-avatar

    go apk The camera, camera app, and flashlight, and occasionally Google Assistant do not work at all and crash. Just like everybody else. After a factory reset, two wipes, and clearing the cache and data. And a rollback to Android 10, and then back to Android 11 just to double check. and the magnet trick, and turning Bluetooth off. Still doesn't work..... Any other suggestions Google?

  10. Daniel Rhea-avatar

    oneplus 7 pro Camera stopped working around February. It looks like a bunch of people have this issue as well. I've called Google's customer service and they essentially said I am out of luck because I am no longer under warranty even though it seems to be an issue outside my realm. I don't think I'll be getting another pixel. My camera on my phone was my only means to video chat with my daughter while she visits her mom's house.

  11. David Futch-avatar

    Worked great until 1 week ago. Now neither this or the Open Camera app will work. Crashes on open. Rarely opens to even see an image a when it does load the image will almost always be unfocused. Tried Many fixes but nothing works. Can't uninstall, built-in app. Seems many others are having similar problems. Pixel 2XL 128GB. Never a problem untill now. Hope it will be resolved soon.

  12. Jesse Welsh-avatar

    Absolutely does not work on Pixel 2. It has been several months since issues with the app surfaced and there have been no bug fixes and no solutions published by Google. Prior to this, I would have gladly re-upped on another pixel phone. Now, I will probably avoid one at all costs. The app just repeatedly crashes when trying to open it.

  13. Ramsey Quintanilla-avatar

    Like everyone else, I'm dealing with the issue of something in either the firmware or software not allowing me to use my rear cameras. I'm using a P4XL, and like others, the frustration is there. I think the worst part of it all is I don't know when it started. Edit 6/18/20: After about of month of working or so, it started crashing again. Unfortunately, as much as I may love Google phones, I won't stay with a company that can't iron out issues that have been going on for half a year.

  14. J. Trev-avatar

    App is no longer functioning properly. Very disappointed in Google. No plans to fix this issue that many of us have. Step up google. Still nothing. Wow so there was even an update and yet my camera is still useless. I assure you this will be the last Google phone I will buy. I still will use Google maps though. Haha.

  15. Shelby Clark-avatar

    Awful: June 5th update: Do NOT download the most recent update to this app. With many, many efforts to contact Google about the camera update that essentially acts like malware, they've neglected/been unable to respond. Camera no longer works, crashes and freezes Pixel 2, apps that use the camera are almost non-functional. It's crazy that they'd let a problem like this go on for so long. Update: June 11th update — still trash, but thanks for nothing Google.

  16. Meddy Bryce-avatar

    Overall was working fine, but update after update different issues showing up, the app crash when trying to take slow-motion or playground mode. Last in date, now the app crash when trying to take a video, I believe the last update might be the cause. I have a Google Pixel 3 XL so my phone is even not that old. Disappointed, especially since it's the native camera app coming with the phone.

  17. Pepper Junus-avatar

    For the last few weeks my camera won't focus and take a decent pic. Sounds like I'm not the only one. I've tried all updates, starting phone in safe mode, uninstalling app.. forcing app to stop. What the hell Google ...if you bricked the camera on your last update please undo it...this is a great phone Google pixel xl2 and not able to afford a new one! Maybe if enough people complain they may do something.

  18. Gillian Duke-avatar

    This app started crashing two weeks ago on June 13, 2020. Seems like alot of others are having the same problem after looking at the reviews. My phone is also not under warranty, so I will assume that they won't help me with this issue. I was very impressed with the Google Pixels when I first purchased this but I don't know think I'll be buying another one.

    Camera App stopped working on January 19, 2020... Tried to contact customer support... No response...*Edit* 6/17/20 downloaded Beta to see if that would fix the problem cuz it seemed to work for some others who have left reviews. Unfortunately it made no difference at all. Camera app still doesn't work. 😠 *Edit* 6/17/20 a couple of hours after I updated to Beta my camera is actually working...*Edit* 6/18/20 Camera stopped working again 😑

  20. Russell R.-avatar

    On Pixel 4 XL this camera app saves a mirrored image of the image you actually saw on screen when you took it, which I've NEVER seen any phone camera do, EVER (or any camera, actually). They *need* to fix this. Just seems mediocre for Google. My old LG V20 and Note 4's camera apps both smoke this one. The good thing is if you take a picture, it doesn't mess up saving it like some cam apps in the past (pics I'd take wouldn't be there later), so it *is* reliable, which does mean a lot to me.

  21. Wesley Wong-avatar

    Update: it's crashing again :( For those of you that have had issues on your Pixel Devices with the camera app crashing, I ended up installing the beta version of Android 11 to see if it would fix it. Low and behold, it seems to be working (for now). Crossing my fingers that this will continue to work. If you have a Pixel device, you should be able to sign up for the Android Beta, and you'll be able to download the Android 11 beta to your device. I've uppped this rating to 3 stars for now.

  22. Tony P-avatar

    Like many others, the camera on my Pixel 2XL just keeps crashing. It's a shame Google hasn't come up with a fix after so many months of notices and bad reviews here in the store. Looks like we're wrong for thinking Google sold quality products. The camera on my cheap older smart phone still works. I should have bought a Samsung instead of this Pixel. Hopefully Verizon, AT&T, T- Mobile, Sprint, etc...will stop carrying Google phones so other people won't be let down like this.

  23. John Morris-avatar

    I had problems with the camera crashing, and it was annoying beyond belief. But after playing around with various settings, I might have found the solution to this incredibly frustrating issue. Here goes. I brought out my old Galaxy S7 Edge, fired it up, and you guessed it; it takes perfect photos AND videos. I'm a happy camper again.

  24. Chris Fowlks-avatar

    Update 6/19/20: updated phone to Android 11 beta bit it did not fix the camera. Like others, my camera began crashing on my pixel 3XL recently. I tried talking with Google support about it and all they could tell me is that my warranty was up so they wouldn't replace it and I could take it to an authorized technician to fix it. Unbelievably frustrating since it appears to be a Google caused issue. I hope they fix this soon, otherwise I'm going to have to switch to a Samsung Galaxy.

  25. David Jenkins-avatar

    I loved this app--until it suddenly stopped working about a week ago! After exhausting all their ideas, Tech Support finally suggested that I reset to factory settings, which I am reluctant to do right now for a number of reasons. Interestingly, I downloaded another camera app and it's having the same problem. Now I wonder if it's a hardware problem. That said, the app worked for about 30 minutes yesterday after it's week-long rest. Frustrating!

  26. Khalid-avatar

    Each time I take a photo in portrait mode, the camera adds the photo to a new folder. So, ten photos means ten separate folders. If I'm doing a mini "photo shoot", I might have 30 photos, each in its own folder. This makes it tedious, slow and frustrating to view the photos from a third-party app or to copy the photos to the desktop. How can we turn off this behavior, please?

  27. John Whitehead-avatar

    Pixel 2xl,running perfect up to three days ago then like everyone else black screen and shut down issues started! Contacted support and you guessed it.... they're not aware of the issue! This cannot be a coincidence that so many people are having the same issue at the same time, it's time Google admitted some liability for this!

  28. Ashani Sibble-avatar

    App keeps crashing!!! To anyone reading this, this is clearly a widespread problem that Google refuses to acknowledge, but nonetheless encourages the pixel 4 upgrade. Clearly they don't care enough if it is taking this long to acknowledge the problem and they want you to upgrade (feels similar to battery/software issues that apple used to force their phone upgrade) Update 2 (6/9/20) still no fix from Google, at this point, I guess im done with Android and moving back an iPhone

  29. Mick Logan-avatar

    Pixel 2XL problem . Camera app is completely broken. All of a sudden it has taken to crashing as soon as it is opened. This happened basically overnight. I have tried every listed method - forcing stop, checking for updates, clearing cache. I have even factory reset my phone and due to a restoring error I lost absolutely everything on my phone as the backup didn't work - to no avail as the camera app STILL crashes immediately. Google! I lost everything on my phone for this! Please fix!!!!

  30. Devansh Vyas-avatar

    I have Google Pixel 2XL, 1.5 years old purchase. Since I have installed update of March month, this camera crashing issue has been started. It opens for 2-3 seconds, black screen & then immediately it crashes or show Application Not Working message. Did everything suggested by Made by Google Twitter account but situation is same. Only option left is factory reset, but haven't find any update that factory reset will resolve the issue. Google look into the matter ASAP & please fix it.

  31. Jacqueline Gaw-avatar

    The June update doesn't allow me to use other applications that utilize the camera. If I open Snapchat, the focus is blurred and same with Instagram. This is suppose to be the selling point of the Pixel and I cannot utilize it. I understand that support will end for the 2XL in 2021 but this seems premature or a money grab for Pixel 4 sales. I attempt to open the camera itself it and it just closes.

    *UPDATE* COMPLETED JUNE 5TH UPDATE - STILL DOESN'T WORK! Looking at all the recent reviews, I'm having the same issue as everyone else with their pixel 2 XL. Started after an update on the phone. I've done every, updated camera app, force stopped it, cleared cache, uninstalled update and restart my phone. Nothing helped.

  33. Shuvadip Ghosh-avatar

    What's wrong with Google!!!!!! Why is this happening with everyone and they are not doing anything about it!!!! The best camera department in the smartphone industry is providing this kind of service!!! Just speechless! I use pixel 2xl. And yes like everyone else, my selfie camera is totally messed up. Weird yellow colour photos, all of them. Portrait shots are also bad.

  34. Sianne C-avatar

    Never once did I recall having an issue with my camera, specifically the front. Always pleasurable. But suddenly, once I start a video call using my front camera, it's very unclear, blurry and unfocused which makes me no longer confident in the Google pixel camera & makes me sad to think that I won't be using my front camera for video calls. I've always been an android supporter but I feel with this specific phone &camera, you've lost me. VERY Dsappointed. Restarted&reinstalled but nothing

  35. Dallas Venegas-avatar

    Camera no longer works. App continues to crash when attempting to open. Camera won't work with other apps. Wrote a previous review but I can see that it was removed. My issue is similar to what everyone is posting in the reviews about the issue with this app and their camera no longer working. I contacted Google support and went through the troubleshoot with them, still no fix. They eventually told me to send my pixel 2 in for repairs and that the warranty has expired. Terrible.

  36. Randy Wood-avatar

    Had to uninstall updates to get camera to work. Just bought a used pixel as a media player at work, during testing I found the camera didn't work. Almost returned it to the seller but decided to wipe and try again and the camera worked... until auto update killed it. So uninstall the updates and everything is working great. Hope Google can fix this.

  37. Aditya Bansal-avatar

    Camera has stopped working after Android 10 update Phone pixel 2 xl. Have reset the phone and also tried Android 11 beta to fix the issue but nothing has helped. Conveniently the issue has arised right after my 2 year coverage period so Google won't help either without paying. This issue was brought on by a software update and Google must help.

  38. nadia Pearson-avatar

    Suddenly on opening the app it crashes. Can only use my front camera not the rear even on 3rd party apps. Tried everything in safe mode, updating, factory resetting and nothing works. This is the second camera glitch I've had with my pixel in less than 12 months since I bought it. Can guarantee I won't be buying another pixel ever again.

  39. Marcos Perez-avatar

    My preferred number of star would be between negative 10 to 0. I own a Pixel 2, and this app keep crashing. At least, considering the number of users that are also experiencing this, I don't feel alone. My advice, run away of any Google mobile products, their quality and service support sucks.

  40. John Ran-avatar

    Pro - portrait mode for people, and night mode colours and texture are good (sometimes shockingly good), and are much more natural than day-time shots (over sharpening and under exposure). Con - manual control needed to do light trails (or add light trail mode), and a lot of day time photos have shutter speed of 1/1600, which unnecessarily reduce image quality.

  41. Britini Sombke-avatar

    App keeps crashing. I've tried restarting, starting it in safe mode, clearing the cache, uninstalling updates, reinstalling updates, even doing a factory reset on the phone. I contacted Google and they just want me to spend the $79 in phone insurance to get the same phone. No thank you, this is obviously a common problem since it's mentioned in so many reviews.

  42. Yahya Alyahya-avatar

    Pixel 2, a camera phone without a camera! My Pixel 2 camera has stopped working since April and I've tried every possible solution out there with no luck. And Google has not even addressed the issue let alone fixing it. The phone is not affected by water damage or has anything that would cause a hardware problem. And just like many other Pixel 2 owners, the camera works occasionally for a few minutes. I can only use the front camera in other apps like Snapchat, but not in Google Camera.FIX NOW!

  43. R M-avatar

    App crashes on Pixel 2. Update 26-06-2020: Factory reset did not resolve the issue, Android 11 beta does not fix the problem, camera app opens to black screen and crashes, camera also not working in 3rd party apps, but selfie camera works in 3rd party apps, camera app will start if phone held upside down, but is not able to focus correctly.

  44. Brittany Smith-avatar

    Disappointing - loved the camera and was so happy with Google until the most recent update. My rare camera now doesn't work and crashes apps as soon as I open them. I spoke to the support team at length and they tried to fix it through reboots, uninstalling etc with no success. It wasn't until I saw these reviews that I realised I was not alone. Why is Google not acknowledging this?? Please release an update that fixes this issue asap!

  45. Jessie Gordon-avatar

    This camera used to take incredible photos but now when the newest update the app is just a black screen and crashes in about 5-8 seconds, just like everyone else. Does not work in safe mode either so it's not third party interference. Contacted support who had me uninstall/reinstall update & do a factory reset on Saturday, none of which worked that day. Then it worked again Sunday out of nowhere, but it is back to crashing when you open it on Monday.

  46. Matthew Drayton-avatar

    This app just started acting up crashes and won't open without freezing. I've uninstalled and reinstalled several times as well as a hard reset. I've also tried updating the app several times with the same results. I'm starting to hate this app and my phone I'll never buy another Android again after this nothing but issue's and it's my third phone absolute garbage.

  47. William Millar-avatar

    New update crashes camera app!!! Just like everyone else, I loved my camera until I installed the update. Now it crashes when I open it. I have done everything the techs suggest, including factory reset. I even learned how to open "safe mode" and "recovery" and guess what? IT'S STILL BROKEN!!!!! GOOGLE NEEDS TO UPDATE THE CAMERA APP SO THAT IT WORKS!!!!! UPDATE CRASHES CAMERA APP EVERY TIME!!!!! PLEASE FIX THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE FIX THE APP!!!!!!! PLEASE FIX THE CAMERA APP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  48. Michael Taylor-avatar

    Camera Issues?!?! Mine quit working suddenly. Followed advice and installed Android 11. Worked once then crashed. Crashed in safe mode also. Started checking updates on any apps that use the camera to see which coincided with the initial failure. Uninstalled discord and so far it's working. Good luck to everyone else having an issue. Back to crashing!!!

  49. Sam Mendelsohn-avatar

    Used to be great until your Feb update broke the camera on my pixel 2. Fix your product. Update 5/5: Still not fixed. So sad for Google. Can't fix it's own product. June 3 - poor Google. Can't make camera work. Jun 25 - hey Google do you think you can fix your product before the next release?

    Front camera completely crashes app for the past 2 days. I've tried clearing the cache, force stopping the app, and restarting my phone. After looking through other reviews this seems to be a common problem. This is very discouraging since I can't use my phone for WhatsApp or Duo video calling without it and my husband is set to deploy in a week. If it's not fixed soon I will be switching back to Apple. 🤷🏽‍♀️

    Well, well, well. Guess what??? My camera "conveniently" stopped working AFTER my phone has been paid off!!! Is this their way of making us buy a new phone??? I honestly wouldn't doubt it. I've uninstalled/reinstalled, powered on and off a dozen times and still nothing.

  52. John Jarvie-avatar

    Since the 7.4 update, the app crashes continuously and has rendered the camera useless for any application. Impossible to correct (have tried clearing storage and cache, etc.). Update should have been properly tested on all devices (including pixel 2) before rollout. What is this, Microsoft?

  53. Tori Dixon-avatar

    Update: I read that it could be a third party app that is accessing the camera and you can only have the camera opened once. I went through all my app and deleted the ones I do not use anymore and that have permission to use the camera. After that, my camera started to work!! After latest update my pixel 2xl camera no longer works...... I was about to update my phone now questioning if I should go with a different phone.

  54. eeyore2100-avatar

    Dear Google, My pixel 2 XL has not worked since April 2020. I now essentially have a high falutant paper weight. Other than your rear facing camera continuously crashes and will only work for a hot secund if you re- start the phone, the phone is great! I am not about to do a factory reset because "you don't know how/what is wrong" when that won't even resolve said situation. I am not about to try the magnet hack that I've read about. It's not our responsibility to fix your mess up. Thanks ✌️

  55. Nathaniel H-avatar

    App worked okay when I first got the phone but now has consistent focusing issues. Works in safe mode but that then leads it to being some interaction with a different app, Google's solution is to uninstall your most recently installed app but has no way to organize apps installed by date, only last updated.

  56. angela edwards-avatar

    Camera has been fine on my phone for a year but starting in May the app crashes almost EVERY TIME I try and use my camera and when it does actually open it's blurry and I can't focus. I would say that it actually works 10% of the time which is VERY annoying. FIX THIS GOOGLE.

  57. Danny Hodgetts-avatar

    DOES NOT WORK. Fresh install, camera refuses to open. First run, it requested permissions and then immediately crashed before even opening on screen. Every subsequent attempt to open the camera does nothing, it immediately crashes. Impossible to use. P.S. Every other camera app works just fine

    Pixel 2XL is the worst cellphone ever! Few days ago, my camera stopped working and now YouTube and Amazon too. I don't know what's happening but I read and many people said it is a common problem in this cellphone and Google doesn't repair it or say anything about it. I lost my money with this phone.

  59. Jay-avatar

    I have always been a lover of Google phones. But this time, with the camera crashing like this for so long is unacceptable. Please fix this issue! I depend so much on my phone camera for my work. I can't even use other camera apps! Extremely disappointed!

    Back camera stopped working on my pixel 2 after the new update. When I try to open the app it's not working I am only able to use the front camera that too with the support of the third party application. Please fix this. After uninstalling the new update also it's not working.

    Edit: as of 6/14/20 my camera has started working again. I did nothing on my end it just worked after the latest update. Be patient and give it time. I'm using the XL 2 and have loved it for the 2+ years I have had it. Now the camera stopped working after an update and I can't figure out how to fix it.

    Bought a used 2 XL as an upgrade because I'm a photographer and sometimes use my phone during walkthroughs of projects. My older phone had a mediocre camera so I read (the wrong) reviews about the image quality of the Pixel 2 XL and bought this used. If I'm shooting something 2-3 ft away or closer, great camera. Otherwise useless. Won't focus beyond 3 feet. Blurry. Lens is clean, nothing broken. Totally dissatisfied.

    April Review: Front facing camera constantly crashes and face unlock has subsequently stopped working. Two key features of my Pixel 4 XL are now inoperable and make the phone cumbersome. I'm not sure how this big of a blunder is allowable for Google. June: Now it's weeks/months later and still no functioning camera. WTH Google? How is this ok? No wonder there's a class action starting up for the Pixel 3.

    The camera is crashing continuously. Unable to take pictures on a Pixel phone. We buy Pixel phones FOR THE CAMERA! And customer support is useless offering neither any solutions or any reasoning for the app failing. Unable to take pictures from third party apps either - Instagram, Facebook, Twitter... Nothing works after the May 2020 software update. Even after I switched to Android 11 Beta, it still doesn't work

    Since last 2 updates camera will not function properly. This camera has been working flawlessly for 3 years. I tried to update to beta Android version but that did not fix the solution. Please update firmware on Google pixel 2 devices so that I can use my phone properly again.

    I'm not the only one who has the same problem. Just stopped and no help. Even after paying for insurance from Verizon. Verizon said that it is a hardware problem and not theirs. Verzion shut my phone off last month during the plague period. So much for 7 years of paying on time. We are here for you. Lol .

    Camera died today after latest update. I'm onw coast to coast motorcycle ride and now have no way to take photos on the trip. So frustrating. - Update: After a month of going back and forth with Google, they are not willing to help me with this. The techs have been nice to work with but all seem to have their hands tied. They suggest that I find a repair shop and pay to have my device repaired. They are not willing to even discuss that the update killed many of our device cameras. I am chatting with them now but not getting anywhere...

    First review got deleted. This update SUCKS!!! Been 2 weeks since I've been able to use my camera. Many others having the same issue. Tried just about everything to fix it. Will be buying an apple real soon if they don't fix it.

    Back facing camera still not working. I've had multiple Google tech support chats, went through all troubleshooting steps multiple times, nothing is working. Such a basic function yet it's not even working. GOOGLE - fix this. Also affecting third-party apps.

  70. Karl Schmirler-avatar

    This app and the camera itself have been great. Just recently like many others have stated, my Pixel 2 camera no longer functions. It will force close whenever I try to open it. Google please either fix this or tell us all straight up what the issue is.

  71. Asyah Taylor-avatar

    Keeps crashing. Doesn't makes sense that the best part of the pixal 4xl doesn't work. Shame! I just bought the phone about a month ago. It was good when it worked but this seems to be a common issue with this phone unfortunately 😔😒

    App was fine for months. Now it frequently doesn't open or let me take photos. Restarting my phone helps, but by that time the photo op is lost. Seems a lot of pixel owners have had this problem for years but Google hasn't resolved it.

    The camera app keeps crashing every time I wanna switch to the front camera, ever since the new update the app doesn't want to work properly, I can't even use snapchat either without the front camera working because of the camera app messing up, I also can't video chat correctly either

  74. i djo-avatar

    It used to be great until update make it crash, and its been awhile since the last update... I can't use the camera to scan and pay!!! It's a pandemic ATM, I don't want to use my card or cash!!!

  75. Matt Jones-avatar

    Was great until the patch for Android now it doesn't work anymore 11/6/20 still not working after a android system patch and update of the app. Considering no longer keeping this phone and going to a different model phone which is a shame used to rave about Google phones.

  76. Kosta Psaltis-avatar

    Three days ago the main camera on my Pixel 3 stopped taking clear photos. Close-up photos are still okay but anything more than a foot away is out of focus. I cleaned the lense, restarted the phone in safe mode and nothing has resolved the issue.

  77. jay white-avatar

    USED to be the best camera app on the market... Now, it just crashes on startup no matter what "fix" you try. Extremely dissatisfied and disappointed with Google for pushing out an unfinished peice of garbage update. Did someone from EA take over this app? Ffs

  78. Chuck Williams-avatar

    Just like all the other recent poor reviews, the camera on my Pixel 2 XL stopped working. I've tried all the suggestions to fix it and am frustrated that Google has not provided any info about this problem. Was a wonderful camera now useless!

    Camera does not work anymore. Such a bummer, because otherwise there is nothing wrong with my phone. Please, please, please address this issue and provide a fix for this! There are tons of negative reviews all with this same problem.

  80. Cassandra Hitt-avatar

    I have loved my pixel 2 then 4 camera app but I just had to uninstall all updates. Not sure what's going on but every picture taken with my front facing camera became distorted. I know I have a big forehead Google but there's no need to increase it x4...

  81. Orlando Irby-avatar

    The rear camera keeps crashing. I've done as the other users have with restarting, clearing the cache, and factory reset. Nothing worked. If a patch is not done soon I will be switching to a different phone.

  82. Andrew Smith-avatar

    Something is going on with the camera. The app launches to a black screen and then crashes after a few seconds. The problem started for me June 24. The camera has also stopped working in other apps.

  83. Liz Resha-avatar

    Suddenly, the back camera is blurry and unable to focus while the front camera works just fine. I haven't had issues with it until very recently and I don't understand why Google hasn't fixed it yet

  84. Darren Jauch-avatar

    Camera update issue - my Pixel 4 XL camera went out 3 days ago. I talked to Verizon and had a online chat w/ Google. After all troubleshooting steps and a factory reset, the Google rep told me to take it to UBreakIFix as they are the authorized agent for them and my phone was still under warranty. I dropped my phone off and after 3 hours, my phone was ready for pickup. The rep told me no new parts were needed as the camera just became unplugged. Hopefully this helps some of you struggling too!

  85. Chuck Steidle-avatar

    Camera broke after update. Back camera wouldn't focus any longer. I had to get a replacement 2xl and now it works but I really don't think it was a hardware failure based on the timing of the problem.

  86. Ron DeKeyzer-avatar

    IT'S THE SOFTWARE THAT SETS IT APART whether you use a pixel or not, Google camera is without a doubt by far the best app to use for your camera phone The camera hardware on the pixel phones is not as good as the current flagship models of other brands, but this software is really what sets it apart from all of the rest, and I mean ALL of them!

  87. Mary Greenwell-avatar

    Black screen of death...front facing camera stopped camera try to switch to front camera and it goes black and closes 😡😡😡 of 6/12/2020 front facing camera still does not work!!!! Fix it!!!!!

  88. Justin Trocano-avatar

    Google camera update broke my pixel 2 XL camera months ago. Never got a fix, even after chat with support no resolution. So if your phone is nearly 2 years old, Google breaks it for you then asks you to pay for replacement or upgrade.... Cool

  89. M W-avatar

    Update, June 5th update did nothing to help correct March's update. Same as every one else with the camera use. Work the bugs out please. It's been a month since the update. Need a correction.

  90. Piyush Baldota-avatar

    Camera is not working . So many people have the same issue with the camera crashing then to google is not fixing the problem . What's the use to buy such expensive product . Money waste

  91. Jody Packer-avatar

    Camera worked fine yesterday, dead today. Won't open and makes a clicking sound when trying. I've uninstalled, reinstalled app. I've tried beta of Android 11. Really don't want to factory reset to test only to have no luck.

  92. Emily Wright-avatar

    App consistently crashes. I haven't been able to use the rear camera on my pixel 2 for over a month now. Google fix it asap please! Updating to Android beta 11 did not work fix the issue at the date of this post.

  93. Hiren Vekariya-avatar

    I think they can't here us let start them trolling in Twitter Same issue after latest update june 11 can't accept this kind of trouble by google they don't have to fix issue or what? Facing issue without installation of any third party app or something after latest update

  94. Trevor Vung-avatar

    New update on 9/6/2020 has made no difference. Very disappointed. App has crashed for pixel 2 XL. Has bricked all camera and flash related functions on my phone and with other apps. Has been happening for the past few days. 27/04/2020.

  95. Randy Lee-avatar

    Useless for about a month now. Camera app no longer opens in Instagram, Facebook, or other similar social media apps. Work around is to use the camera app on its own and then export the picture through other means.

  96. Ben Wilson-avatar

    Great overall. Portrait mode and Night Sight are both amazing. It would get 5 stars if it had a Pro Mode like most other default camera. Annoying I have to download an outside app to change some basic features like shutter speed when my old Galaxy had that years ago

    Same trouble as everyone else. The camera will operate once after a reboot and then crash again. All since the recent update. Come on Google. The camera wasn't bust, but in fixing something you truly have broken it.

  98. Ryan Sheets-avatar

    Camera crashing all the time and even when you download another app. I think this is Google's way to make people buy a new phone. We ahould not have this problem with Google.

  99. Alan Ma-avatar

    6/15/20 Update - Camera randomly works for a few seconds but will either freeze or crash still, even caused a buzzing noise that forced a restart on phone. Noticed camera on IG or FB actually worked instead of showing blank screen.

  100. Deepakshi Jain-avatar

    I am using pixel 2xl phone and camera app is crashing constantly after the last update. And if we open camera using front camera it works and crashes as soon as i shift to back camera. Kindly please issue new update after fixing the issue.
