How to import / export configuration files:

Some Google Camera versions support export/import of .xml files, allowing users to quickly load the best settings for their phone or lightning conditions.

Config files are stored in the /GCam/Configs/ directory, with /GCam/ being next to the DCIM, Downloads, etc, folders.

This folder needs to be created manually using a file manager (no root needed) or automatically by exporting/saving your config (use the option in settings menu). Config files use the .xml extension.

Import / Load:

To import a config file from another user, move it to the /GCam/Configs/, open Google Camera, double click the dark area around the capture button, select the config, and then click on “restore”.

Export / Save:

To backup your settings, use the option available in the settings menu. Your configuration will be saved in the default /GCam/Configs/ folder (eg: /GCam/Configs/config-name.xml). This file can be used on another GCam version that supports this feature or shared with another users.

Usage Scenarios:

This can be used for a few things. For example:

  • Quickly switch between the best settings for low light and day light.
  • Use recommended settings from devs/other users for your phone.
  • Move between versions without loosing your settings.
  • Keep unstable features enabled on one config but disabled on another.


1- Download and install the APK file from above links.
2- Configure the app using the suggested settings. (Some APKs don’t need configuration.)
3- Restart the app and shoot!

1- This port only works on phones with the Camera2 API enabled; which fits to all Android 9 (Pie) versions of Mi Mix 3 ROMs.
2- Requires Google Apps installed. (If not, just search install “Google Drive” from Mi Store, it will add all required apps too.)
3- If you can’t install the app you already have a Mi Mix 3 Google Camera app installed, try to remove it first before installing a new one. If your ROM ships with a pre installed app, remove it or use a different ROM.

Google Camera provides flash effect with white flashing screen when using front selfie camera.
