Google has pushed out a new update to the Google Camera app (v4.4) that allows users to take selfies with flash. Additionally, an app developer has now figured out a way to bring the same camera improvements (on the software side) that are carried out on by the Google camera app on Pixel smartphones to other Android smartphones that feature capable processors.
To get the Pixel-like HDR+ feature, an Ukranian developer has shared a modified version of the search giant’s Google Camera app. This modified version brings the HDR+ image processing to any device that features either a Snapdragon 820, Snapdragon 821, or Snapdragon 835 SoC which includes LG G6, OnePlus 5, OnePlus 3T, OnePlus 3, and Samsung Galaxy S8 devices.
Google introduced the Selfie Flash feature with Google Camera v4.4, essentially an off-white hued screen flash for when using the front-facing camera. With this feature turned on, the app turns the entire display into an off-white colour that provides a soft flash to improve pictures taken in low-light.
