The Google Camera Apps for Pixels gets updated a few days ago from version 6.1 to 6.2. A quick look at the app left us wondering if something was new, but when we examined it carefully, we noticed a few changes, some insignificant, and a large part of you would love: dark mode.

Dark mode settings

The camera interface has always been focused on black, but when you have switched to settings, you have always been hit by a bright white screen. Now the settings look after your device. My Pixel 2 XL is on Android Q with light theme included; when I turn on "Battery Saving," everything gets dark, including the camera application settings. It also works on Android P, although the behavior may be less consistent.

New Animated Transitions

Switching Camera, Video, Portrait and Panorama in Application 6.1 Camera showed a black transition screen with the middle icon . With v6.2, the screen no longer flashes black, but instead has a great transition and zooming effect. If you flip between modes, the result is smoother than before, and it feels faster.

Flash icon for self-timer

This is superfluous. In v6.2, when the flash is activated for the front camera, you will see a real flash icon on the display. Maybe people wonder why their screen switches to this sepia tone and this addition helps to explain that it acts as a flash.

Google Camera 6.2 is now available in the Play Store, but if it is not yet available to you, you can download it from APK Mirror.
