  3. Camera Upgrades: Every camera on the Pixel 8 Pro has been upgraded. The main camera is designed for better low-light photography, the ultrawide lens offers improved Macro Focus, the telephoto lens captures more light and provides 10x photos at optical quality, and the front-facing camera now has autofocus for better selfies.

  5. Best Take Feature: This feature uses an on-device algorithm to create a blended image from a series of photos, ensuring everyone in a group photo looks their best.
  6. Magic Editor in Google Photos: An experimental editing tool that uses generative AI to help users enhance their photos. It allows for repositioning and resizing subjects or using presets to make the background pop.
  7. Audio Magic Eraser: This feature allows users to reduce distracting sounds in videos, such as wind or crowd noise. It uses advanced machine learning models to sort sounds into distinct layers, giving users control over their levels.
  8. Video Boost: Coming later this year, Video Boost will use the Tensor G3 chip and Google’s data centers to apply advanced processing to videos, adjusting color, lighting, stabilization, and graininess. This feature will also enable Night Sight Video for improved low-light video quality.
