Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL Guide: Tips, Tricks and How-Tos

For the time being, you'll only get this Easter egg on the Pixel 3 and 3 XL. The OnePlus 6 and 6T probably will never be able to produce identical results as the Pixel 3 in terms of Night Sight images, but another update or two of this Google Camera port, the two devices may be able to come extremely close, though, which is something users will probably appreciate.

At long last, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL owners no longer need to rely on a 3rd-party application to figure out the songs your phone hears via Now Playing. Super Res Zoom makes up for the Pixel 3's lack of optical zoom by using computation photography to sharpen in details when you zoom in. Of all the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL problems out there, this definitely seems to be the one that has been causing the biggest headache for users.

To gain in more light during low-light conditions, Night Sight takes up to 15 frames with a reasonably slow shutter to give you an effective exposure of about five seconds. As you can see, it really brightens up the shot. Using the wide-angle lens, you'll be able to capture 184 percent more of the scene than you could with the iPhone XS's front camera, according to Google. For example, the photo-taking issue will be addressed, it says. It's also putting its AI to work improving the phone part of your smartphone experience.


You'll see the shortcut on your home screen. One of them, related to the camera, already has a fix.

Open Settings from the app drawer or home screen. The phone will still notify you with a sound or vibrate, but no actual notification shows up on the display - at least until you reboot the phone, which fixes the issue until you put the phone on the Pixel stand to recharge again.

Digital Well Being is another Android 9 feature worth exploring.
