Google Camera 7.1 Update
The Google Camera 7.1 update started rolling out a few days ago and with it comes a new UI, Framing hints, and the social share feature. This comes before the Google Pixel 4 launch which we will post a blog about in a few days. Which thanks to a ton of leaks we happen to know a lot about the new Pixel smartphones. This includes design, hardware, software, and a few other key features. But for this blog, we will be talking about the 7.1 Camera update.
This includes a better Night Sight, and we have just found out that Google is developing a feature called “Frequent Faces”. This feature could come out with the Pixel 4. Along with things like Social Share.
Social Share works like this. When you take a photo you swipe up over the preview image. Then with Social Share you can add up to three apps, these can be changed in the settings menu.
Framing hints is the other new feature coming to the Google Camera 7.1 update. Which does just what the name says. This new feature gives you suggestions on how to better frame your photos. The best way to test this out is by taking a selfie. While taking your glamourous selfie hold the camera down low and tilting it up. Framing hints will then show a message suggesting you “Raise camera for a better angle.”
From looking at some coding in the update it seems that the new update will use some of its facial recognition technology to put emphasis on certain people in group shots over others. This is based on how frequently you take photos of these people. For example, if you have kids and take a group photo of all of the kids on your block, then the special emphasis will be on your child. Which is kinda cool if you ask us.
Overall on the Google Camera 7.1 Update
This new update is sure to offer some amazing features with it. Now the only problem is if it will introduce new issues as well. The Google Pixel phone has had its fair share of “problems” over the years. We at Rezz Tech have to say that even with these issues Google has done an amazing job at fixing these issues.
