Google Camera app for Pixel received a couple of days ago the update from version 6.1 to 6.2. A quick glance at the application has left us wondering whether anything new at all, but on closer inspection we noticed a few changes, some minor and one most of you will love: dark regime.

Dark mode in the settings

camera application interface has always been focused on the black, but when you switch to the settings, you have always been amazed by uneven white screen. Now the settings appear to follow your device. My Pixel 2 on Android Q XL with mild subject included; when I turn to conserve battery power, all dark, including setting the camera application. He also works on Android P, even though the behavior may be less consistent.

New animated transitions

Switch between camera, video, portrait and panorama in the camera application version 6.1 showed a black screen transition to the icon of the mode in the middle. With v6.2, the screen is not flashing black anymore, but instead have a cool transition and zoom in / out to occur. If you are hitting between modes, the result becomes smoother than before, and feels faster.

Flash icon flashes selh

This is one of & # 39 is completely wasted. In v6.2, when the flash fires at the front of the camera, you will see a real flash icon on the display. Perhaps people wonder why their screen was the transition to this Sepia and this app helps to explain that it works as a flash.

Google Camera 6.2 is already rolling out on the Play Store, but if it is not available to you, then you can take it with APK Mirror.
