Did you get the Night Sight update on your Pixel phone?

Google's Pixel phones have always been champions in the camera department, and thanks to an update that started rolling out yesterday, they're about to get even more impressive.

Night Sight is the latest feature to grace Pixel cameras, and as seen in Andrew's full review of the new feature, it completely changes the way you capture low-light photos. Night Sight makes them considerably brighter, more detailed and is nothing short of pure magic.

It's rolling out to owners of all past and present Pixel phones, and looking through the AC forums, a lot of people already have access to it. Just got the camera update on my pixel 2 and night sight is there. Yay! I have been waiting for it and now I can't wait to play with it.

ITS AMAZING!!! Works with both back and front cameras!


I got it on my P2 a few hours ago. I'm going to have to give it a whirl.


Not showing up for me yet. Can't wait to give it a try on my upcoming trip...


What about you? Do you have Night Sight on your Pixel phone yet?

  • I just downloaded the apk right when it was released
  • Yes, I got it yesterday for my P2.
  • I just now realized I got it. Pixel
  • I own a Pixel 2 and I believe I didn't get the update. How do you enter night shot mode?
  • annoyu as my P3 XL does not have it yet, but older phones do? Good for you truly, but should be on the 3 first
  • Agreed. I wonder if it has to do with Verizon delaying it? - On a Pixel 3XL
  • Stop your complaining. You'll get it when you get it.
  • Yup Pixel 2 XL
  • Not yet on my P2. How can you tell? Is is another pick on the scrolling options?
  • Just got it 30 minutes ago and it's quite impressive what it can do with so little light! Pixel 2 on Verizon
  • Just got it on my Pixel XL (first gen) here in the UK. Just took a photo under the covers. Now that's impressive. 😉
  • Got it on Pixel 3 two days ago. Pretty damn impressive!
