Faster night vision for the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro is implemented with Google Camera version 8.8.
First introduced for the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, Google says that night photos “have less motion blur, as exposures can be half what they were before.” Company credits “Improvements to HDR+ with bracketing and new machine learning techniques to reduce noise.”
“Night Sight now requires only half the normal exposure time to produce sharper low-light images than before.”
When switching to the Night Sight tab after updating to Camera 8.8, Pixel 6/Pro owners will notice a circle in the bottom right corner. Touch to select 2 seconds or maximum (increases up to 6 seconds). Depending on the shooting conditions, the time increment may vary between 2 and 6 seconds.
Google lets you decide on a longer exposure time for faster night vision or improved image quality.
The feature was announced as part of this month’s feature rollout, with Android 13 QPR2 not yet available for the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro and 6A. The March patch brings “general improvements to stability and camera performance under certain conditions” for the Pixel 6, 6 Pro, 7, and 7 Pro. The 7 series benefits from “improvements to color accuracy or level of exposure when using the front camera under certain conditions.
Google Camera 8.8 has yet to be widely released via the Play Store, but it is available for sideloading. The app was last updated in December.
