Of course back then, the feature wasn't available so we couldn't test it out when we reviewed the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL. While soon after the announcement, we saw people tearing apart the Pixel 3 Google Camera APK to get the feature which was still in beta, today the company is rolling it out officially.

Night Sight can take an image that might otherwise have been too dim and turn it into something that looks not just passable but nice. Fortunately, it's not all doom and gloom, as Pixel users now have access to the firm's anticipated Night Sight mode. And while in some respects, I like the pic taken without Night Sight more because its richer colours and darker exposure make for a moodier final image, when it comes to details and sharpness, the photo taken with Night Sight is clearly superior. You can enter "Night Sight" by tapping this suggestion or manually navigating to the mode. Though Google may end up having to play a game of cat & mouse, as ROM hackers have been able to modify imaging applications to get it working on third-party phones as well.

Of course, you do need to be in the market for a pair of news smartphones.

While many users indicate that this could be a hardware issue, a Google representative has confirmed that this phenomenon will be fixed via a software update in the coming weeks. Check out the sample shots on Google's blog for some great examples of why. That's why this video about Google Pixel's Night Sight completely caught my attention.

Low light photography is one of the big pain points in smartphone cameras, and Google announced a new feature that aims to drastically improve it.
