Google has evidently removed support for its Astrophotography mode from the Pixel 5 and 4a 5G ultra wide cameras in the most recent variant of the Google Camera application. Astrophotography mode is currently just accessible on the telephones’ essential camera.

At the point when both the Pixel 5 and 4a were released, Google’s Astrophotography mode was accessible for use on both the telephone’s essential cameras just as the super wide. As indicated by Gizmodo, the most recent update to the Google Camera application, variant 8.1, added a large group of highlights to more established Pixel telephones yet has eliminated the capacity for the more current Pixel 5 and 4a 5G telephones to utilize Astrophotography mode on the super wide.

The help page for low light photography currently peruses “On Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5, astrophotography just deals with zoom settings equivalent to or more prominent than 1x.”

Google has not given an official motivation to the expulsion of the component, however Gizmodo conjectures that it could be in light of below average picture quality that was being accounted for on the Pixel uphold page when utilizing the element with the super wide camera.

Client Harvey Etheridge posted a one next to the other examination of a similar photograph taken with the principle camera versus one taken with the super wide, and the thing that matters is obvious. The super wide picture quality is altogether more awful, with a ton of pixelation and a green tint.

Etheridge said he had hopes that Google would fix the issue later on. Eliminating the component is likely not the “solution” he and others were looking for.

Rendition 8.1 initially delivered in November and the present report is the primary noted inclusion of the Astrophotography highlight being pulled from the super wide camera. Since it has taken this long to be seen, it’s far-fetched this change significantly influenced numerous clients.
