Journalists of the resource 9to5google explored the new version of the app Google Camera, which flew on their smartphone with operating system Android 11 Beta. And in the code was discovered a few interesting references.
First, I note that the code contains names of the three smartphones from Google, which has not yet been formally presented. This model Pixel 4a (“sunfish”), Pixel 4a (5G) (“bramble”) and Pixel 5 (“redfin”). Recall, the announcement of the Pixel 4a will take place next Monday, August 3. The presentation of two other devices expected to be in autumn.
Now go to the new shooting modes that may appear on smartphones Pixel in the near future.
One of those is Motion blur. Earlier in the code for the Google Camera application this mode is mentioned under the code name “Paneer”, which is now renamed the “Lasagna”. It is expected that Motion blur would create a DSLR-like effect when shooting moving objects.
Another novelty can be a Audio zoom. This ability to “focus” the sound in a certain direction while recording video.
<string name=”pref_audio_zoom_title”>Audio zoom</string>
<string name=”pref_audio_zoom_summary”>Boost the sound where the user is zooming in on.</string>
Well-known Creator mods Cstark27 managed to activate the Audio zoom in one of the assemblies Google Camera, but the function does not affect the shot clip. Perhaps this mode will require a special hardware chip, which is not in the existing smartphones Pixel.
Also, Google Camera could be the ability to change the intensity of the flash. At the moment it can only be enabled or disabled. But in the application code revealed a string with a reference to the flash intensity.
Other Android smartphones for quite some time offer the option of variable intensity flash. However, given the excellent work of the Night Sight feature in the Google Camera, not the fact that someone wants to turn it on.
Another small innovation may be the ability to quickly share recorded video. Google Camera is already running , the function of Social Share for photo — it allows you to select up to three applications, icons which will appear in the lower right corner. When you took the photo, you can quickly share the. Now Social Share can earn and live. There’s even a list of applications that will support the functionality:
- Facebook Messenger
- Google Hangouts
- Google Messages
- Verizon Messages
