    Don't know if anyone has tried this yet, but it works pretty good on my 6p on the latest 90x build. Both cameras are still available and I didn't have to remove the stock one.. Here's where I saw it and it's from XDA...

    For those of us not lucky enough to have one of the new Pixel devices on pre-order, you can still enjoy some of the software benefits the device brings.

    This is the port, not the official app, right?

    I used Boat Browser and it seemed not to work, but after trying 2x times it did down load fine.

    That was on the same 6P sensor as before - Pixel has a different sensor and different SoC and is running 7.1.

    I had it for a few days. I didn't really notice any difference other than Burst mode stopped working. I went back to stock version.

    I have been using the Pixel Camera for a couple of days and I can tell that the light adjustment, and focusing seems to be faster, I always leave HDR Mode on, and the camera app not only takes the pictures faster, but it also processes the HDR Photo faster as well. The quicker adjustment to different lighting situations is nice as well!

    If I install this, will I get updates to it in the future? If not, how do I know when there are updates? I've seen these extracted APKs before but I never see a post about an update for them.

    Hmmmm...I didn't really notice any of this and I was looking for it. I was also hoping the EIS would improve. Maybe I will try it again later.

    No, because you have to disable the stock Camera app for this APK to work.

    Sorry, that's not correct - I'm able to use both of them at the same time.

    Unless an update to the Pixel version comes out, which someone would then have to port to work on 7.0, you will not get an update to this app.

    However, once 7.1 is released it will hopefully include this feature for older devices. At that point it would replace the existing Camera app.

    Yeah... I'll stick with the existing Google camera app. It doesn't sound like there are any dramatic improvements.

    I made the choice (mistake?) to install the Pixel phone app which I actually like but that app is available in the Play store. The Camera app does not appear in the Play store.

    I don't think the pixel phone app is in the play store, it's just a third party app with the same name

    I think you misunderstood (or I wasn't clear). I mean the original, non-Pixel phone app is in the Play store so if I wanted to roll back to it, I could. Whereas, I can't do that with this Pixel camera app. But - it's being said that you can have both on your phone.

    I don't think that you understand.. There isn't any need to roll back.. You have both cameras available to you not just 1 with this apk.
