In addition to revealing a key change to gestural navigation in an upcoming Android Q edition, we detailed new features in Google Camera 6.3 that you can download now. Night Sight is a central part of the app while the white balance settings have been removed. Our APK Insight also revealed a "McFly mode" and Pixel 4 support.
Version 6.3 of Google Camera raises Night Sight to the app's main interface. If you replace Panorama, it is much faster to access one of the best features on Pixel phones. The slideshow mode is now two swipes to the right or a quick push in the carousel in camera mode.
Night Sight is no longer buried on the "More" tab, while Google Camera will still show pop-up suggestions when scenes are dark. The second major change is the removal of color temperature control. With most users sticking to automatic white balance in the past, it's probably not a big loss. For the full list of tweaks, be sure to check out our full hands-on gallery.
Meanwhile, a breakdown of this new version reveals a development in "McFly" development, which is likely to reel video or even Motion Photos. Google often has fun names for camera functions, which of course is a reference to Back to the Future .
With Pixel 3 with two forward-facing cameras, selfies are clearly important for smartphone buyers in Google's mind. Camera 6.3 takes it one step further with built-in photography tips. Finally, we found signs of Pixel 4 support with this release.
How to download?
While in a build of Android Q, Camera 6.3 works fully on Android 9 Pie. We have installed it on Pixel 3 and Pixel 3a. Google could choose to make this update available with a future Android Q version or just release it via the Play Store.
Until then, check APK Mirror to download Google Camera 6.3.
