Google is shifting the Pixel’s Night Sight mode in the main Camera UI


The upcoming release of Android Q has just been leaked online this morning with a key enhancement to gesture navigation. That leaked build also features a new version of Google Camera that shifts the Night Sight mode into the main camera UI.

Currently, Google Camera 6.2 is the stable release available via the Play Store for all Pixel phones. In a report by 9to5Google, the Google Camera version 6.3 was bundled with the latest release of Android Q. The version 6.3 comes with a tweak which shifted the Night Sight mode to the main UI of the app.

Previously, this mode was available in the “More” tab or available as a suggestion when the scene is dark. In Google Camera 6.3, it replaces the Panorama mode in the main interface, joining Portrait, Camera, and Video. You can now swipe right to toggle between different modes and can stay to the Night Sight mode. This is a big improvement for the Pixel’s best camera feature. While using the camera app at the normal mode in a low-light situation, the suggestion for enabling the night sight mode still appears in the UI. 

The next big change in Camera 6.3 removes white balance/color temperature controls from the app. With this release, the thermometer icon no longer appears in the top bar of any mode. Available presets previously included Auto, Cloudy, Sunny, Fluorescent, and Tungsten. Meanwhile, there is a slew of small tweaks with this update. Panorama has been moved to the More tab and takes Night Sight’s previous position.
