One of the main highlights of the Google Pixel Feature going down in March was the Google Camera 8.8 app. This made the already better Pixel 6 series faster and a much improved Night Sight feature. In other words, the feature that the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro got out of the box is now available for the Pixel 6 series.
Why did the Pixel 6 series get the feature so late? Well, Google does this all the time. It makes some exciting features available to the latest phones and then passes them on to the older ones. Regardless, the Pixel 6 series getting improved Night Sight with Google Camera App 8.8 is certainly a good thing.
Google Camera 8.8 App: What Can It Do?
So, the new Night Sight feature available for the Pixel 6 range improves exposure levels and motion blur issues. Google says the Google Camera 8.8 app will “offer less motion blur as exposures can be half as long as before.”
Additionally, “Night Sight now only needs half the normal exposure time to produce beautiful low-light images that are sharper than before.” In other words, you can expect to get better night shots with the installed Google Camera 8.8 app.
However, Google Camera 8.8 offers more control over exposure time. You will see a slider when you tap the “seconds” option in the Night Sight tab. This slider will allow you to choose between 1, 2, 3 or a maximum (6) exposure time. You can choose one depending on the lighting conditions you are working under.

However, since the exposure time is much shorter for the Pixel 6 series, you won’t need to hold the phone steady for longer. Google Camera 8.8 will do a better job even when you hold the camera still for a few seconds.
