From the first generation Google Pixel phones to the third generation, we have seen an impressive improvement in Google’s camera software. We have seen the camera of Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL doing wonders last year and blowing phones like the iPhone X and Galaxy Note 8 out of the water regarding the camera performance. The story was repeated this year with the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL as both the phones feature the same single rear camera that shoots incredible photos, thanks to Google image processing.
One of the most talked about features of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL is Night Sight that lets you take unbelievable photos in low light. It is similar to Huawei’s Night Mode that we saw in the P20 Pro and the Mate 20 Pro. If you look at all the images shot with Night Sight in low light, you will be amazed to see the amount of light and detail in the photos, thanks to the Google’s image processing algorithms.
Now, you can get Google Camera with Night Sight feature on your phone. No, it no longer requires Android Pie since the new mod from the developer Arnova8G2 runs perfectly on some phones running Android 8.1.0 Oreo. Arnova8G2 said that he tested the mod on Xiaomi Mi 5 and the Essential Phone and it worked flawlessly especially the Night Sight feature.
Most of the users were able to get this mod working perfectly on their devices running on Android 8.1.0 Oreo. So, the only requirement is that you need the Camera2Api enabled. A lot of phones let you enable it without unlocking the bootloader, but some require unlocking the bootloader and rooting.
HOW TO GET GOOGLE CAMERA WITH NIGHT SIGHT ON (ALMOST) ANY PHONE
If you know how to handle manual camera controls, then you know how to capture a great photo in low light by playing with the ISO and the shutter speed. But, the Google camera makes it super easy since everything is done automatically and you don’t need to set anything manually.
Now, the Night Sight feature may not work on every phone running Android 8.1.0 Oreo and above. Even my Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 failed to run the modded app despite the fact that I have Camera2Api enabled and Android 8.1.0 Oreo running out of the box. So, if it doesn’t work, then the only way to get it working on your phone is via flashing any custom Pie based ROM.
- Once you download the APK file from the button above, all you need to do is Install it like any other app.
- Once installed, simply Open the Google Camera mod and then swipe right till you get the ‘More’ option.
- Here, tap on the ‘Night’ option, and that’s it.
- You can now take fantastic photos in Low Light, thanks to the Night Sight feature.
Well, that’s it. If the app worked perfectly on your phone along with the Night Sight Feature, then do let us know the change you noticed in the photos taken with HDR+ and those taken with the Night Sight feature. If it didn’t work, then either you will have to flash any custom ROM or wait for the developer to make another port that works.
