Camera not functioning on Android Devices

We are using the same PowerApp on a number of Android devices.

 

PowerApps version 3.20101.19

 

On Samsung Galaxy S6 running Android 7.0, both the Camera and the Barcode Scanner function properly.

On Alcatel phone running Android 8.1.0 neither the Camera or the Barcode Scanner work.

DataLogic Memor 10 running Android 9 the Camera does not work.

Mobiwire Hotah running Android 8 the Camera does not work.

Thanks @WarrenBelz . There is a workaround with oddly enough works!

The Add Picture control has a setting under Data - UseMobileCamera

Set this to True & it takes photos, even though the Camera control does not.

I can only assume one of the Android software releases has broke this.

Hi @stapes ,

The only thing I have struck is some devices do not have the Default camera as Camera 0. Try setting to 1,2,3 etc in the Camera Control - we have needed to do this on some Samsung models.
