Yes please, this is very useful before taking the shot. I know I can view a histogram after the image is taken but would prefer a live histogram option while composing and before image is taken.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Love to see the histogram while use camera mood in lightroom mobile.

Hope to see this option soon just to help us when using the camera in the app.
Nice to have and thanks for the best app

Well 2yrs and no reply from Adobe, I'd say this just isn't going to happen. I currently use a Note 9 and the native camera seems to be the better option of any aftermarket camera apps.

The only thing the native app lacks to the lightroom camera app is the option to do live effects (ie. B/W) while shooting raw DNG.

no option for live histogram (B/W + Color).
no option for RAW + JPG.
no option for Apeture control (f/1.5 & f/2.4)
no focus peaking
no highlight or shadow clipping
no option for Shade in the WB control (not a big issue)
no metering display.
no metering controls.
no manual control over second lens (larger sensor/telephoto).
no HDR option.
no shutter sound (not a big issue).
no tracking auto focus.
no meta data collection for lenses (ie. Moment Tele, Wide, Anamorphic, Zies, Beastgrip, etc.)
no autofocus points display/animation (ie. DSLR or native camera)

Exposure compensation is available but has to be mapped to volume controls only.
