Up first is a feature called 'Top Shot' that uses AI to help you capture a better photo. When you let in a motion photo, it captures alternate shots in HDR+, then recommends the best one – even if it’s not exactly when you hit the shutter. As a result, you're profuse likely to capture an image when everyone is smiling, their eyes are open etc. 

Group Selfie, as the name suggests, makes it easier to seize group shots you also want to be in while Photo Booth mode uses AI to recognise when you're smiling or pulling a funny pronouncement so the phone snaps the shot without you having to press the shutter button. 

As you'd expect from a Pixel smartphone, when you get photos in Portrait Mode, you can change the blurriness of the background, or change the part of the picture in focus, after the fact. Google Photos can also facilitate a make up for the subject of your photo pop by leaving them in colour, while changing the background to black and white.

Other interesting camera features involve Night Sight for better low light photos and Super Res Zoom which Google says will produce better images when you're disliking the full length of the built-in zoom (we'll find out when we put the new smartphone to the test). Motion Auto Focus helps fence in subjects sharp and if you enjoy capturing selfie videos, you no longer have to worry about shake as the front-facing camera has video stabilisation.
