Google's Night Sight is rolling out to Pixel phones

Google Rolls Out Night Sight Tech to Improve Quality of Low-Light Photos

Night Sight for Pixel Phones is Going to Blow Your Mind, Coming This Week

It's not just the single 12MP rear camera on the rear of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL that will benefit from Night Sight though, with the dual front cameras of both handsets also getting the mode added to their arsenal.

Google says to expect it on your phone (all Pixel phones) in the next couple of days, thanks to an update to the Google Camera app. Additionally, the camera app will proactively suggest users take advantage of Night Sight when it detects there's little in light a scene. One of the most notable ones was their Night Sight feature, which produced incredible looking photos in a near-absence of light. Once the photo is captured, the device will use all its machine learning skills to attempt to balance the color of your photo - instead of the super red or yellow or blue of the extra light you've let in on the subjects of your photo.

"Before you press the shutter button, Night Sight measures your natural hand shake, as well as how much motion is in the scene", said Alexander Schiffhauer, Product Manager, Computational Photography for Google. As soon as the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL went on sale, Google confirmed that the feature will only become available in November.

On Monday, Bolton told the reporters that the United States trusts Saudi Arabia to investigate the killing. Turkish intelligence officers believe the call was made to one of bin Salman's close aides.


Night Sight will be coming first to the Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, Pixel 2 and 2 XL, and Pixel and Pixel XL. Since the algorithms capture multiple pictures in burst mode, when something in the frame is moving, the Night Sight mode produces a motion blur effect on the picture rather than improve quality. Chances are some developer or another will make it happen - but you never know!

Ever since the launch of Google Pixel 3 devices last month, there were various reports about bugs surfacing on the new devices. The process begins today, but it may take some time before it arrives on all the Pixel smartphones out there in the wild. Once updated, you can experience the new feature by heading to more and then tapping on Night Sight option in the camera interface.

Google states that it's rolling out over the next few days via the Google Camera app at the Play Store.
