How to detect no of camera's available in android device? and also if the device has front camera how to use it?
What I would suggest is similar to doc_180's answer, but should be able to detect both front and back facing cameras even for Froyo, though if I'm not mistaken, Froyo never supported front-facing cameras, so you'll always get a false response for
frontCam on Froyo.
PackageManager pm = getPackageManager(); boolean frontCam, rearCam; //Must have a targetSdk >= 9 defined in the AndroidManifest frontCam = pm.hasSystemFeature(PackageManager.FEATURE_CAMERA_FRONT); rearCam = pm.hasSystemFeature(PackageManager.FEATURE_CAMERA);
EDIT: Just realized this is a really, really old question. Oh well, hopefully it helps someone in the future.
