The Google Camera App 8.8 was one of the standout features of the Google Pixel March Feature Drop. The already superior Pixel 6 series gained a significantly quicker and enhanced Night Sight capability as a result. In other words, the capability that came standard on the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro is now accessible on the Pixel 6 series.
Why was the functionality added to the Pixel 6 series so late? Google certainly does this frequently. It gives the most recent phones access to certain intriguing features before passing them on to older phones. But, it is unquestionably a positive thing that the Pixel 6 series now has better Night Sight with Google Camera App 8.8.
WHAT CAN THE 8.8 GOOGLE CAMERA APP DO?
Thus, the updated Night Sight function for the Pixel 6 range resolves issues with exposure and motion blur. Since exposure times may now be cut in half, Google says version 8.8 of the Google Camera App “offers reduced motion blur.”
Moreover, “Night Sight now just requires half of the typical exposure time to capture lovely low-light photographs that are crisper than before.” In other words, if you have the Google Camera App 8.8 installed, you may anticipate getting better evening shots.
Nevertheless, the Google Camera 8.8 gives users more exposure time flexibility. When you choose “seconds” under the Night Sight menu, a slider will appear. You may choose an exposure time of 1, 2, 3, or up to 6 with this slider. Depending on the illumination you’re dealing with, you can choose one.
But, you won’t need to keep the phone steady for as long because the exposure time for the Pixel 6 series is significantly shorter. Even if you hold the camera steady for a few seconds, the Google Camera 8.8 will perform better.
