Google's impressive 'Night Sight' camera feature rolls out today - here's how it works
Hollis Johnson/Business Insider
Google's "Night Sight" feature for its Pixel smartphone cameras rolls out on Wednesday.
The feature that comes with the Pixel's camera app is rolling out over the next few days, and anyone with a Pixel 3, Pixel 2, or original Pixel can update the camera app to receive the feature.
Night Sight is designed to take better photos in low-light conditions for both the rear and selfie cameras, which most phones simply don't do that well.
Often, smartphone photos in dark situations end up being as dark or darker than a user's environment. Some phones let you adjust the camera settings for better night shots, but the results can often be grainy or blurry.
I've been using Night Sight on the Google Pixel, and you can see the difference it makes and how it works below:

This photo was taken in a room with very little light.
The camera app will even suggest when to use Night Sight when the surrounding lighting is too dim for a good photo.
You just need one or two extra taps to use Night Sight.
And depending on how much light there is around you, you and your subjects will have to stay still for a few seconds to let the Pixel's camera capture enough light.
Google also has a few tips for prospective Night Sight users.
I've only used the tester's version of Night Sight, and I'd rather show you the results of the final full release version that everyone has access to.
