With Android 11, due to be released before the end of the year, some apps will only be able to select the OS pre-installed Camera app when using the camera.
Previously, when you selected the camera function from an app, you could choose a third-party camera app or download a third-party app from the Play Store.
However, according to information revealed by Google in a developer thread called Issue Tracker, Android 11 will no longer allow you to select a camera app in some apps, which will affect Reddit, Google Keep, and a number of other apps.
Google explains that the change is to "protect privacy and security". It's true that third-party camera apps have the potential for data breaches and other opportunities, but it would be painful to limit the convenience of users by doing so.
