Missing camera modes and can't use selfie camera

    BigDrewbot, Jul 19, 2019 :
    My 6t camera app all of a sudden seems to be missing a few modes (e..g Portrait has disappeared) and I can't toggle between front and rear cameras. Can only use the rear camera.

    It's the standard OnePlus Camera app - v2.9.43.

    I've read some of these threads and
    - don't have (or can't find) any way to uninstall updates to the camera app (no triple dots) (there is a toggle to activates Google Lens within the camera app but I don't remember adding and I can't find where to uninstall that - it's the icon to the left of 'Video' mode)
    - have not installed any 3rd party camera apps
    - phone is standard Oxygen OS and is up to date (T-Mobile devices OS v9.0.12. Have not modded the OS in any way

    Please advise!

    Hi Legolas - I have done both of those but still the same. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    I have similar issue. One plus 3T. Can get to both front & back cams but selfie mode is not working / removed from Android 9/Oxygen OS 9.0.4... annoying.

    Hi Legolas - no, haven't installed anything related to the OP7. Appreciate your continuing to think about this though!

    Disable the camera app and enable it again and then check

    tried that. no difference. also played around with all the permissions for the camera app too.

    starting to feel like a restore to factory default and start over...what a pain. at least most things are saved up in the cloud...

    Is it possible to reinstall the camera app to see if that fixes the problem? What happens if I haven't rooted and try to grab the 3.8.1 version from apkmirror?

    Yes, but you should stay with versions compatible with the OP6/6T. The 3.0.16 is the current stable version. There is also a 3.0.37 which is probably a beta version (open beta has 3.0.42).

    well 3.0.16 is still missing portrait mode and still won't let me swap between front and rear cameras so either my front camera has stopped working or i need to do a factory reset (which I'll try as soon as i figure out how to make sure I'll still be able to access the things that rely on Google Authenticator for 2FA).

    thanks for the suggestions everybody! if there are any other ideas, please chime in!
