How to enable camera permission

How to enable camera permission


Merge EDU apps require your camera permission to work in Cube Mode and World Mode (3D Mode does not require camera permission). 

The first time you open a Merge EDU app, it will ask for your permission to use the camera and pop-up a request for access. If you agree, then the app will have the permission forever. However, if you tap “Don't Allow” you will need to go into your device settings to enable that permission manually.

Here are the steps to enable camera permissions on iOS and Android:
