Google's Incredible Night Sight Mode Was Worth The Wait

Here's the best Black Friday deals on Google Home Hub, Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, Chromecast and 4K Ultra dongles.

Three has offered up not just a Google Pixel 3, but also a Google Home Mini rolled into one nice bundle - oh, and a little monthly data package of 100GB! Night Sight was announced alongside the Pixel 3 and 3 ...

Tech reviewer Marques Brownlee has been testing Night Sight.

Google has confirmed to bring the Call Screen feature even to the first generation Pixel and Pixel XL later this month. Moreover, Google also shared how Night Sight works which, in a nutshell, works using AI to understand the surroundings at the night and adding light as well as balancing the colours accordingly.

Alternatively, following the update Night Sight will be present in the Camera app's settings and can simply be turned on by heading to the "More" section and tapping on the new "Night Sight" icon.

Gaza rocket strikes Israeli residential building, killing 1
Hamas has also carried out a surprise guided-missile attack on Monday on a bus that wounded an Israeli soldier, the military said. The IDF said though that the operation was "not meant to kill or abduct terrorists, but to strengthen Israeli security".


Night Sight works by taking multiple long exposure shots and stacking them together.

On Cyber Monday, Google will host a different Pixel 3 promotion. But by ordering them from Google, you get to use the phones with any carrier you want.

Of course, you do need to be in the market for a pair of news smartphones. However, the processing technology behind Night Sight is not dependent on the latest hardware. As while the software will look to offset against user and target movement, the more still the user and target remains during the process, the greater the results that can be expected. Hopefully, a similar feature will debut from Apple for future iPhone cameras.

It's unclear from the reports how quickly Google is rolling out the update, but it appears to have been started and can take several days to complete. Night Sight is a bit out of the way.
