Google is rolling out an update to the Pixel Camera app a month after the release The latest versionwith version 8.6 that introduces a bunch of textures that tweak and improve speech for the Pixel 6’s rear lens.
Update 10/26: google Put on a large scale Minor camera update 8.6 this afternoon with version 8.6.263.478604508.17 For Pixel 6 Pro and earlier. We haven’t encountered any user-facing changes and this is likely just a bug fixing tool.
Comes as version 8.7 that remains exclusive to the Pixel 7 series with A bunch of user-facing changes Independent of new camera hardware. Highlights include The return of repeated facesRemoved Google Lens shortcut, new lock folder location, and various icon tweaks. Google Camera 8.7 could come to older Pixel phones with December Feature Drop and Android 13 QPR1.
Update 9/2Google Camera version 8.6.263.471358013.15 was released widely on Friday afternoon as a small patch. There are no visible changes on the phone.
The corresponding Wear OS update (8.6.263.471358013.15) is a bug fixing tool after the initial update last month. The camera preview while watching looks HD, while the different buttons no longer have graphic errors.
Update 8/25: Another change made by Google Camera 8.6 sees the default increment in/out going from .6 to .7x in the pill-shaped switch above the shutter button. We’ve seen this change on the Pixel 6a (114° FOV, 12MP) and 5A (117°FOV, 16MP), while it’s also supposed to be the case on 5 and 4a 5G.
You can press to restore 0.6x again, while the difference is not that significant. This matches the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro which have been 0.7 (only) since launch.
Update 8/18: New version of Google Camera 8.6 is being widely released today: 8.6.263.461063035.12 to 8.6.263.463689965.13.
This is likely to be a minor update, but should see wider availability with the launch of Android 13 on Monday. Camera 8.6 is not released for Pixel phones running Android 12 or earlier.
Update 7/28: Google Camera 8.6 on the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro (which we’ve since gotten an update) enables Speech Enhancement for the rear camera.
At launch, this feature was only intended for recording video with the front camera and works to reduce unwanted noises such as “wind, traffic and crowds”. It’s now available on the rear camera in 1080p (FHD) resolution at 30 frames per second.
Original 7/27: The main visual change today is in the “Modes” tab at the end of the library. The buttons for Panorama, Photo Sphere, and Lens are now placed in a circular rectangular container rather than being directly overlayed in the live preview.
Along with the Material You mode, these access points have also been moved to the bottom of the screen to aid access, especially if your thumb is there to tap the shutter button.
Finally, the buttons are now designed in dynamic color, like other key elements of the UI (for example, the mode switcher and locked folder shortcut), rather than being black on a white background.
Camera 8.5 vs 8.6
We got Google Camera 8.6 on our Pixel 4a (running Android 13) this afternoon, but the new update hasn’t rolled out widely. Via Play Store.
The last gap between updates was small During (Version 8.4) Two months (8.5), so this release will definitely come sooner than expected. Presumably it also has bug fixes, but frequent faces It’s still down as far as we can tell.
