Google’s Night Sight launches for all Pixel phones today – get it now [APK Download]

Wednesday, November 14th, 2018

At the Pixel 3 launch event in NYC, Google showed off what it called "Night Sight," a feature that produced incredible looking photos in a near-absence of light. Modified versions of the Google Camera app gave everyone willing to sideload them an early taste at the feature, but the wait is now over. And according to Google, Night Sight is rolling out for all Pixel devices, past and present, in the coming days.

November security patch forces Night Mode when Battery Saver is enabled, whether you want to or not

Tuesday, November 13th, 2018

With the November security patch that began rolling out to Pixels last week, one change was made to the way Night Mode and Battery Saver interact. When the latter is enabled, the former immediately changes to on, and the behavior can't be modified, though you can manually switch back to off.

Take a look at the GIF below. I start off in Developer options, with Night mode set to Always off.

November OTA files, factory images, and security patch notes for Pixel and Nexus devices are up

Monday, November 5th, 2018

One of the best benefits to owning Google's hardware is the regular monthly updates, which deliver both bug fixes and security patches at a predictable schedule. Like clockwork, Google has just pushed out its November OTA files and Factory Images for Pixel and currently supported Nexus devices — or, at least, for most of them. Unfortunately, functional patches this month don't seem to include fixes for any of the recent Pixel 3 issues just yet.

Now Playing History arrives on Pixel 2 and 2 XL

Monday, November 5th, 2018

One of the coolest little features that came with the Pixel 2 was Now Playing, which would listen out for any music that was playing around you and try to identify it. It's basically an always-on Shazam that shows you the track names on the lockscreen.

There's always been one major drawback, though — if you're not looking at your phone while the song is playing, you'll miss out. Until the launch of the Pixel 3, there was no such thing as a list of all the songs previously identified.

Thursday, October 25th, 2018

The Pixel line is known for, above all else, its wicked cameras. But one problem a certain type of mobile photography enthusiast has run into with the phones is that they don't currently allow for the use of external microphones in the default camera app.

Modded Google Camera APK enables Night Sight for all Pixel devices (and it’s impressive)

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2018

The guys at XDA Developers often like to tinker with APK files to enable hidden features, trigger specific behaviors, or spoil Google's surprises prematurely. Their latest software shenanigans involve Google's Camera app and the promised Night Sight feature that is supposed to come next month.

Announced with the Pixel 3, Night Sight is a low-light photography mode that ekes out every wave and particle of light to get clearer, better-lit shots in dark environments.

[Update: Rolling out to all Pixels] Google promises to fix camera bug resulting in unsaved photos

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2018

A few nasty software bugs have been discovered on the Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL, one of which causes some photos not to be saved. It's not entirely clear what triggers the bug in the first place, though there were reports of it affecting other Google-made phones too, like the Pixel 2 XL.

The Pixel 3’s Now Playing History is coming to Pixel 2 ‘soon’

Friday, October 19th, 2018

The Pixel 2 and Pixel 3 both have a feature called Now Playing that automatically identifies music playing from nearby sources. It's a neat trick that's currently significantly better on the Pixel 3, which provides a history of identified songs. That functionality gap will be closing in the near future, though, when Now Playing History makes its way to the Pixel 2.

Now Playing History shows a chronological list of tracks your phone has heard; tapping one gives options to listen to it in any compatible app you have installed.

Over 75% of Pixel users are on Android Pie — why not more?

Monday, October 15th, 2018

It's a well-known fact that software updates permeate the Android market at a crawl in comparison with iOS, but Google's own Pixel devices are an entirely different question. The Pixels are an opportunity for Google to brag that when it makes its own devices, it's able to surpass Apple in the updates arena — and that's exactly what Google's senior vice-president of hardware, Rick Osterloh, attempted to do in a recent tweet.
