Since the technology or astrophotography mode was announced on Pixel phones in 2019, it has become the preferred mode for users, along with Google continuing its efforts to improve the situation and move it to the next level, users were very excited to see the results of photography in this mode with phones. Pixel 5 and 4a 5G But the unexpected appeared, as the quality was zero.
The company now announces the disabling of astrophotography on its aforementioned phones. Once updated to the Google Camera version 8.1, users will not be able to use astronomical mode, except in the case of using the main camera, provided that the banner “1x zoom for astrophotography” appears at the top of the screen.
Finally, this deactivation matter is not surprising as long as the results are bad, hoping that Google will do the necessary work and launch it again with high quality, and I note that the rest of the shooting modes, especially the night mode, are still working at full power without any problems mentioned.
