The new Google Camera that shipped on the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL is now available to Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. The app starting rolling out this morning, as far as we can tell, bringing with it the new swipey UI.
- UPDATE: This camera update included a buried Night Sight mode that when enabled, does some pretty crazy low-light photography
The update to the Google Camera shows you the mode you are shooting in at the bottom of the viewfinder, just above the shutter button. If you’d like to switch modes, you can simply swipe left or right on the screen, rather than swipe out a side menu and individually pick a mode, which was the case in the previous build. This update also lets you long-press on the screen to quickly launch Google Lens.
Top Shot did not make it into this update, nor did Night Sight or Photobooth.
The update is rolling out at as Google Camera v6.1.013.
