A fresh Google Camera update is rolling out this week that gives Pixel 5 (and I’m guessing Pixel 4a 5G users too) more control over the Auto Night Sight setting. It’s a minor tweak, but certainly useful.
Thanks to a single new button in the pop-down menu in the Camera app as a part of version 188.8.131.522609439, users can turn off Auto Night Sight completely. See below in the “More Light” section of quick settings pop-up, where you now have off, auto, and flash options.
Using this toggle, Pixel 5 owners can take back full control of the regular camera mode and save Night Sight for those moments when they really want to use it. I can’t say that I’ve been overly-frustrated by Google suggesting Night Sight at times, but I’m also well aware that there is a dedicated mode for Night Sight that I can access if I need it. I kind of like the idea of telling Google to leave my camera spaces alone.
The update is rolling out now, so hit that link below to grab it.
