Leading the way in AI
The Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro come with some jaw-dropping AI tools to help you get the best results from the phone cameras. Best Take combines similar photos into one fantastic picture where everyone looks their best2.
If you take several shots in succession, you can then choose the best look for each person in the frame, and blend them all together – so your kids don’t necessarily have to be smiling on the same shot for you to come out with a great photo.
Then there’s Audio Magic Eraser: never let background noise from roadworks, the wind, or a passing aeroplane ever ruin your videos again. Audio Magic Eraser uses Google AI to reduce distracting sounds with a few taps, so you can hear the ones that you want3.
You can also play around with the Magic Eraser, which easily remove distractions, like photobombers, in Google Photos. Or change the colour and brightness so that an object blends right in3.
What appeals about these features is not just how powerful they are, but also how easily they can be applied. What would previously take hours in a photo or video editor application can now be done on your phone in mere seconds.
