Export/Import Settings: .XML Configs



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 (see image below).

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.

Export/Save:
