Decided to install the latest Google Camera that supports Night Sight for all Pixel phones on my Nexus 5X running Pixel Experience with Android 9. I was shocked to find out that Night Sight was actually available on Nexus 5X as it's the only Pixel 3 feature available on our old Nexus. (Even portrait mode is not available) Decided to test it out and results were surprising! It actually works! The only problem is while taking a photo the camera is upside down, but that's not something you should worry about as the photo is normal when you take it. Below are the photos I took.

I've just updated (OTA) my PixelExperience to the latest version and I've tried to install the Google Camera from:
- Google Play store: No night sight is shown (old UI).
- cstark27 version from here opens ok, but crashes as you go to night mode
- Even tried the One+ 6T versions and, of course, crash too.

Where did you get the working version?

Thanks, now it's working with this version!!
Google Camera 6.1.021.220943556 (arm64-v8a) (nodpi) (Android 9.0+)
By Google LLC

The upside-down viewport is annoying, but the final pic shows ok.

I've tried to disable the HDR+ because each photo takes almost a minute of heavy post-processing CPU load, and now my phone is burning, but no luck with this since this setting only can be disabled in normal camera mode. The final result is awesome, but now I'm afraid of a sudden bootloop because of heating if I take several photos in a short time.

I'm in Android 9.0 Pixel Experience, and the apk name reads Android 9.0+. I don't think it can work in Oreo.

this is working quite ok, except for:
- slowmo goes black and do nothing
- portrait and front camera is shooting but colors are completely wrong. like on green&yellow plus black
- panoramic shoots but the resulting picture will be upside down, photosphere works ok though
- night shot works but preview image is upside down THEN the final picture is rendered correctely, not upside down

this instead is the latest "normal" camera 5.1 working ok with my N5X
