Google Disables Wide-Angle Astrophotography in Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G

Google released the Google Camera 8.1 app last month. As it turned out, one useful feature was removed from it.

What’s the matter

Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G users noticed that after the update, the app was no longer able to take astrophotography on the wide-angle module of devices. Unfortunately, Google did not provide a reason. Perhaps the whole point is that the wide-angle sensor is inferior in quality to the main one. By the way, astrophotography is still possible on the main 12.2-megapixel sensor.

Recall that the astrophotography mode originally appeared in smartphones Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. Он allows take pictures of the starry sky using a long exposure. To take such photos, the smartphone must be stationary, so you need to use a tripod or stand.
