Google Camera 8.8 brings faster night vision to Pixel 6

Faster Night Sight for Pixel 6 and 6 Pro will be released with Google Camera version 8.8.

First introduced by Google on the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, it’s introducing Night Sight photos with “less motion blur because exposures can be half as long as before.” The company credits “HDR+ updates with bracketing and new ML techniques to reduce noise.”

“And Night Sight now only needs half the normal exposure time to produce beautiful low-light, sharper images than before.”

When switching to the Night View tab after updating to Camera 8.8, Pixel 6/Pro owners will notice a circle in the lower right corner. Tap to select 2 seconds or Max (which lasts up to 6 seconds). Depending on the shooting conditions, the time increase can vary between 2-6 seconds.

Google gives you the option to choose between a faster night view or a longer exposure time to improve image quality.

This feature was announced as part of this month’s Feature Drop, as Android 13 QPR2 is not yet available for Pixel 6 and 6 Pro and 6a. The March patch also brings “general improvements to camera stability and performance in certain conditions” for the Pixel 6, 6 Pro, 7 and 7 Pro phones. The 7 Series also benefits from “improvements in color accuracy or exposure level when using the front camera in certain conditions.”

Google Camera 8.8 is not yet widely released through the Play Store, but it is available as a side download. The application was last updated in December.
