Google just rolled out a brand new Pixel camera update with version 8.2.4 for their flagship phones. Latest Google Camera 8.2.4 APK brings the most anticipated features called Time Lapse for Astrophotography Mode! So download and install latest Gcam v 8.2.4 APK update featuring Astrophotography Time Lapse mode.
The Astrophotography mode has been available for the Pixel devices since last year with Gcam 8. With the Pixel 4 series, Google launched “Pixel Feature Drop” package for a regular release of new software features for the Pixel smartphones. The latest Pixel Tips app featured new animated astrophotography mode. The update is now live on the Google Play Store and has a new “CameraAstrotimelapseSettingController” code. It suggests Time Lapse for Astrophotography mode.
Today, the latest Google Camera app update dropped a new Astrophotography Time Lapse feature with version 8.2.300 or higher. There’s another Gcam 8.2.400 update hitting the newer Pixel 5 and Pixel 4 series today as well. Both, the Gcam 8.2.4 and Gcam 8.2.3, feature the “CameraAstrotimelapse” tip suggesting Astro timelapse.
As for how the feature works, first enable the feature called “Enable Time Lapse in Astrophotography” option under advanced section from camera settings in the latest Google Camera v8.2.4. As usual, you will need to place your Android device on a tripod to make it still and wait until the shutter changes from moons to stars. There is no specific option to switch to astro timelapse. The Google camera app will automatically process both an Astrophotography image and a timelapse at the same time. However, you will need to give it at least 2.5 minutes or longer in order to take better images and the longer the timelapse.
