Android 10 devices do NOT support USB camera connection.


Android 10 devices do NOT support UVC(USB Video Class) devices to be connected in the apps with targetSdkVersion API Level 28 and above.


From November 2019, all app updates on Google Play have been required to target API level 28 or higher.

(source: https://android-developers.googleblog.com/2019/02/expanding-target-api-level-requirements.html)

Therefore, for updating the app to Google Play, microscope camera apps should be API level 28 or higher.


  • Android 10 smartphones CANNOT connect a USB cameras like webcams, etc in the app from the Play Store.


  • People who use the Android 10 device and broadcast live with webcams, DSLRs, camcorders, and etc., can download OTG View, USB Camera with target API Level 27 as below:

OTG View.apk(17.52MB) Android 4.4 and above
USBCAMERA.apk(4.18MB) Android 4.4 and above


So far, we haven’t found any official documents form Google OS about these policy changes.

We are looking for various ways to solve the issue and will share if there’s any updates.
