Pixel Camera app gets external mic support alongside Pixel 3 launch

In fact, with the new Pixel range coming close on the heels of the new Apple iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max devices, both seem deserving for a comparison shoot out to find out if one has the edge over the other.

"Please remove the number from your mailing and contact list".

Right after the release of the iPhone X last year, everyone had jumped ship and joined the notch craze this year and 9 out of 10 devices released this year 2018 have a notch. It's a wide-angle lens for a feature Google calls Group Selfie Cam.

During the announcement, Google talked a lot about the Assistant, AI, and machine learning which all allow the software and camera do to some unbelievable things. Google doesn't have a dual-lens camera on the back of its new phones though, so the company's engineers created an enhanced digital zoom feature that's meant to provide zoomed photos that are just as clear as photos captured using optical zoom. The launch event of Google was able to surprise many audiences. "We spent years researching computer vision technologies, analyzing hundreds of millions of photos". You can easily hide it on the device and use it as a full-screen phone.

These Smart Displays will be getting feature parity with Home Hub including the option to include your Smart Displays in your multi-room audio setup. The Pixel 2 turns out awesome portrait shots with that coveted bokeh background blur. Improvements to Google's artificial intelligence and a new Top Shot feature aims to recognize your best photo, capturing multiple photos before recommending the best one. To enable this option, users with a Google Pixel 3 XL must go to the development options on the device. Again, the AI can determine when you're smiling or making a face.

Does hearing that word trigger you? Pick any of these and you will have the same camera experience. That philosophy carries into the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, which are identical aside from the changes necessitated by their size differences. I have been keeping an eye on this thread since the beginning and have good news. It's like a super-charged version of predictive text that could genuinely save you a lot of time. In the meantime, enjoy feeling like a wally saying "Hey Google" to your lockscreen and having it completely ignore you. Google Assistant is far closer to being the real-life personal assistant you can't afford than any of its competitors.

In the company's online security blog, Google revealed that "devices can take advantage of a new capability where backed-up application data can only be decrypted by a key that is randomly generated at the client". It might not be the best-looking choice, but it's surely the smartest.
