In front of the June Pixel Feature Drop, code in the Pixel Tips application points to Google Camera’s astrophotography potentially getting moved up to offer time lapse by video.
About APK Insight: In this “APK Insight” post, they have decompiled the latest version of an application that Google uploaded to the Play Store. At the point when they decompile these files (called APKs, on account of Android applications), they are ready to see different lines of code inside that indicate conceivable future features. Remember that Google could possibly at any point ship these features, and our interpretation of what they are might be flawed. They will attempt to empower those that are closer to being finished, in any case, to show you what they’ll look like for the situation that they do ship. In light of that, read on.
Astrophotography time lapse
On Tuesday evening, Google started rolling out an update to the Pixel Tips application — form 126.96.36.1993287606 — a typical event in front of a quarterly Feature Drop for Pixel telephones. While a significant part of the new “tips” are not yet live in the application after this update, our Dylan Roussel had the option to find code for another tip identified with Google Camera.
The key portion here is obviously “Astrotimelapse,” which suggests the combination of taking a period pass video with the Pixel’s excellent astrophotography capacities. In the event that our suppositions are right, this might actually permit you to record the movement of the stars in the night sky.
Lamentably, the solitary other detail they had the option to find is that prior to showing information about “Astrotimelapse,” the Pixel Tips application will check in case you’re utilizing version 8.2.3 of the Google Camera application. Starting today, the freshest form of Google Camera is 8.2.2, recommending that an update might be coming sooner rather than later, however there’s no guarantees it’s attached to the June Feature Drop.
Google Photos locked folder
Recently, during Google I/O, the organization shared that Google Photos would acquire a new “Locked folder” feature — elite to Pixels, from the start — which permits you to keep certain photos hidden from your telephone’s display. In similar Pixel Tips update, they have discovered indications of a “tip” about the Google Photos locked folder.
While a long way from affirmation, this proposes to us that the locked folder will show up sooner rather than later, possibly as a component of Monday’s June Pixel Feature Drop.
