Google Pixel 4a 00003

Google has been introducing many functions in your camera app, which users in Spain can also enjoy. Improvements such as photos taking up less space or its cinematic mode. Although the new version of the application, with number 8.1, which has been released for Pixels, eliminates a popular function among users.

Astrophotography is one of the most popular functions on the Google camera. Until now, users with a Pixel 4a or Pixel 5 could use the main camera or the ultra wide angle when using this function, but in its new version, only one of the two can be used.

In version 8.1 of the Google camera application, eliminated the possibility of using the ultra wide angle when using astrophotography. Users can now only use the main camera when they want to use this feature in the app on their Pixel 4 or Pixel 5.

No reasons have been given why this possibility has been eliminated, although everything suggests that it has to do with the quality of photos when using astrophotography with the ultra wide angle of the phone. Users have reported on more than one occasion that these photos are not of quality, while those taken with the main sensor are great.

The use of ultra wide angle in astrophotography allows you to capture a larger field, although light and quality are sacrificed for it. It seems that Google doesn’t want their camera app to go through that, so they remove this option. The photos obtained using the main sensor are of high quality and allow better use of this function in the app.

It is not known if Google has decided to temporarily eliminate this function for the Pixel 4a and Pixel 5 and an improved version of it will be launched in a future version of the app. If you have any of these phones and you already use version 8.1 of the app, you will notice that you can no longer use astrophotography with the ultra wide angle.
