    I bought a new OnePlus 8t this week and cannot seem to find the camera app installed by the manufacturer. Please can someone suggest how I am able to get this app and if I could find this in playstore then which one am I looking for?

    The OnePlus camera app is pre-installed. If not on the homescreen, swipe up to show the app drawer and it will be in there unless you have hidden it (to access "hidden space" go to the app drawer and swipe from left to right.

    I am not sure if apps like these can be mistakenly deleted but it seems this is what happened. I do not see this in the app drawer or even in the hidden space section.

    it is a system app, so you can't uninstall (unless rooted)
    check Settings > apps & notifications > see all # apps > camera > there should be 3 options in the middle - Open, Disable, Force Stop - if only 2 and one of them says "enable" then it was disabled, tap "enable" to re-enable it.
