Zenfone 9: Have Camera app open Google Photos when pressing latest photo?

Please tell us some basic information before asking for help:

  1. Model Name: Zenfone 9
  2. Firmware Version: WW_32.2004.2004.84
  3. Rooted or not: No
  4. APP Name & APP Version (If your issue relates to the app): Default Camera app (

In addition to information above, please also provide as much details as you can, e.g., using scenario, what troubleshooting you've already done, screenshot, etc.


I've used Google phones for the last 7-8 years and use Google Photos on all my devices. Zenfone 9 has a Gallery app that I've deactivated and instead use Google Photos here as well, so I have access to all my photos and videos from the past as well.

The camera app on Zenfone 9 has a "latest picture" button (see screenshot) that will only open the Gallery app, so it prompts me to activate the Gallery app.

Isn't there a way to set Google Photos as my dedicated photo/gallery app somewhere, so pressing this will instead open Google Photos?
