The Google Pixel Watch and Pixel Watch 2 are some of the most feature-packed and usable smartwatches on the market. One reason is that you can easily use your watch to control certain aspects of your phone’s camera. Well, thanks to a new report, we now know that the Pixel Watch camera app has more controls.
The Google Pixel Watch 2 is the latest smartwatch from the company, and it improved upon what the company brought with the first generation. It comes with up-to-date Wear OS 4, smooth performance, and perfect integration with the Google Pixel ecosystem. If you’re interested in picking up this device, check out the link below.
There are now more controls on the Pixel Watch camera app
Smartwatches are extremely useful, and they provide an avenue for you to move more functionality away from your phone and onto your wrist. This is why there’s a convenient camera app for the Google Pixel Watch. It allows you to take a picture with your phone using the watch as a remote. You can also zoom in and out, turn on/off the self-timer, and switch between the front and back cameras. It eliminates your need to run back and forth between your camera and the spot where you’re taking pictures if you find yourself without a cameraman.
Also, another great feature of this app is the fact that you can see a live preview of the viewfinder right on your watch. So, you’ll know exactly what you’re seeing before you take the picture. Obviously, the viewfinder will be very small, but it still gives you a good idea of what you’re looking at.
As convenient as this is, it’s been pretty limiting in terms of functionality. When you’re taking a picture in the dark, you’re pretty much stuck with the camera’s default mode. Fortunately, after a new update, the Pixel Watch camera app has more controls.
Using the app, you can switch between video, photo, portrait, Night sight, slow-mo, and time-lapse modes. This adds a ton of functionality to the app, and it will spark more people to use it. If you don’t see this feature yet, make sure the camera app on your Pixel Watch is fully up to date.
