The Pixel 4’s Astrophotography Mode is coming to older Pixels
November 6, 2019

A new Google Camera update is now rolling out.

One of the key highlights of the new Pixel 4 is support for Astrophotography Mode, which basically turns the smartphone into a camera that can take long exposures to capture those bright shiny objects in the night sky. It was undoubtedly one of the cool features of the Pixel 4, and now Google has started rolling out the feature to older Pixel smartphones.

Google Camera 7.2 is now rolling out to all Pixel users, where the last update was in August. The update includes a new user interface that now moves the mode switcher to the bottom of the app – this was done to maximize the viewing area when taking images or videos. Various other tweaks like a redesigned zoom control and ratio settings are also included.

There’s also a new feature called Social Share that lets you easily share an image or video directly from the viewfinder. There’s also a new feature that enables you to record a video if you press and hold the shutter button.

Google Camera 7.2 is now rolling out to all users of the Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL users.
