Pixel Visual Core uses computational photography and machine learning to improve image quality in photo apps. Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL owners will now be able to take HDR+ photos right within apps like Instagram, Snapchat, WhatsApp, and many other apps.
Users don’t have to fiddle around with any complex settings to get the HDR+ results. They just need to take a photo as they already do and the device will handle the rest. The company has also confirmed that it’s going to add new augmented reality stickers themed around winter sports later this week.
