Not everyone is great at taking pictures and taking a perfect shot from a smartphone can be even more difficult.
Google has now made it easier for users to take awesome pictures, even when you miss an awesome moment. Google's “computational photography” algorithms work behind the scenes to give you the perfect shot you've always wanted but could never achieve.
All of this is possible thanks to machine learning and Google's new Pixel Visual core chip.
The feature is called 'Top Shot' and is now being rolled out to Pixel 3 smartphones via an update. It works in tandem with everything mentioned above to pick the best shots from a number of images.
It basically clicks images before and after you click the shutter button and gives you a range of shots that you may want to use. This will basically eliminate the problem of pictures that would have eyes closed or weird expressions. You can simply scroll through the alternate images to use the perfect moment captured.
If you love taking selfies, Google has introduced another feature called 'Photobooth'. It essentially works similar to the 'Top Shot', where it takes a bunch of selfie shots by recognising the subjects in the frame. What's cool is that it will capture images automatically when you smile or make funny faces, without having to click the shutter button.
