Google Camera Go app, the trimmed down version of the Pixel’s Google Camera app is receiving two interesting features that would level up the photography prowess of the entry-level phones.
Google Camera Go’s Product Manager Pranay Bhatia announces via a short video that the Camera Go app is receiving the Night Mode feature and soon the HDR support will come for better image quality. In the video, he talks about the Night Mode feature which is also available on the full-blown Google Camera app. When the Night Mode on the Camera Go is enabled, you can take high-quality low-light pictures even without using the flash.
He explains, the Night Mode on Camera Go uses burst photography that captures multiple, simultaneous images and merges them to produce a bright, sharp photo and that too without the help of a flashlight. Thus now even affordable phones can capture detailed images in low-light settings.
The Night Mode feature has started rolling out to the Nokia 1.3, Wiko Y61, and the Wiko Y81 with its latest update.
The video also confirms that later this year, HDR support will come to Camera Go app as well. We first got to know about Google's plans on bringing the HDR support to Android Go phones back in April when the team at XDA Developers dug into the Camera Go app.
It is great to see that Google takes care of elevating the experience of its partners’ phones running Android Go Edition. By introducing its computational photography prowess that was otherwise present on flagship phones, Google is giving the consumers more power to harness more from their affordable phones.
