Google globally released Night Sight, a night mode feature for its Pixel phones, last night. It is available as an update to the Google Camera app on Play Store. The Night Sight feature helps capture detailed images in low-light conditions without the use of a flash or tripod. Google had first announced Night Sight at its Made by Google event in October this year while showcasing its new Pixel 3 phone. Night Sight is available for the Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL and the older Pixel 2 and original Pixel smartphone.
Night Sight works by using machine learning and algorithms and adapts to the environment by measuring natural hand movements and the motion in a scene. It then increases or reduces light capture to produce brighter and sharper photos in low-light conditions. The Night Sight feature can be manually selected on the app, but it also gets prompted automatically by the camera in low-light conditions. Night Sight works on both the back and front Pixel phone cameras.
