Camera update for Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro has been performed since November 30, 2021. However, users do not receive it via a system update. Instead, the Google Camera app needs an update from the Play Store. Click here for the update via the Play Store: Google Camera App.
With the Google Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro, the search engine giant will deliver smart and nice smartphones in 2021. The main camera in particular impressed us in the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro test , thanks to great extras and high photo quality. An update for the camera brings useful innovations to the Google Pixel Phones.
The new version brings two major improvements. On the one hand, the night vision function is now directly available in normal camera mode as well as in portrait mode. Users no longer have to switch to night vision mode.
In addition, there is now an almost stepless adjustment of the zoom . This is done either with two fingers or with the new button for the zoom controller. This means that very fine zoom level settings are possible instead of just a selection of fixed magnifications, as was previously the case.
There are also modes for video stabilization . According to Google, the modes “Fixed” are suitable for longer recordings in which you sometimes look away from the camera, “Active” for important moments and “Cinema Effect” for steady camera pans.
Updates for the Pixel 6 camera via the app
If you don’t want to go through the Play Store regularly, you don’t have to worry about missing future camera updates. Because when using the camera app, it automatically suggests available updates. The download and installation will then take place in the background. Then the application only needs to be restarted once – that’s it. Such a simplified update is also desirable for other apps, but has not yet been confirmed.
