Google is yet to respond to this text disappearing bug reports alongside a bug affecting Pixel devices where photos captured with the camera aren't being saved.

Google teased a new "Night Sight" camera mode for low light photography during the launch of its Pixel 3 smartphone and today, it is rolling out the feature for its entire range of Pixel phones. But when you actually shoot a picture, it's not a simple click and you're done. That's all three generations of Pixel smartphones, all getting Night Sight "over the next few days" in their standard Google Camera app. Google is changing that with Night Sight, a Pixel-exclusive feature that will absolutely blow your mind. The Night Sight works best when there is minimal light and photos taken in regular mode produce grainy images. If the subject moves during the capture, Night Sight can adapt to prevent a modest amount of motion from ruining the shot. We've been testing it on the Pixel1, 2 and 3 and here's what the final images look like. The Night Sight photo, however, was evenly lit, and you could clearly see the people in the foreground without losing any detail. To set a baseline, I started by taking two shots with the Pixel 3, one with Night Sight off and one with Night Sight on.

But when you start pixel peeping at 100 per cent, you can really appreciate little details from the general sharpness on every sign and sticker to the Pixel 3's ability to clearly capture the wood grain on the framed chalkboard and the texture on various beer taps.

The time for Night Sight for Google Pixel devices is here, and the release time is imminent. Once the app is updated, you can access Night Sight in the Camera app in the "More" section, where shooting modes like Photo Sphere Slow Motion, or Lens are found. Though Google may end up having to play a game of cat & mouse, as ROM hackers have been able to modify imaging applications to get it working on third-party phones as well.
