The June Pixel Feature Drop brings some Pixel 8 camera features to the Pixel 6, Pixel 7, and Pixel Fold, along with the release of Pixel Camera 9.4.

Usually, the camera app automatically decides which lens to use based on zoom level, lighting conditions, and other factors. However, you can now go to the photo settings and manually select the lens, allowing you to choose which camera to use (wide, ultra-wide, or telephoto) instead of the phone making the decision.

This feature is limited to the Pixel 6 Pro, 7 Pro, and Pixel Fold. This toggle can be found in the photo settings under the “Pro” tab.

You’ll also find the setting for saving photos as JPEG only or JPEG+RAW. While this isn’t a new feature, it was previously located under Settings > Advanced Options.

Additionally, the HDR+ mode has improved in selecting the perfect moment. When you press the shutter button, the phone will do its best to capture the photo when the person’s face is focused and they are smiling.

These enhancements are added to the Pixel 6 and newer models, the Pixel Fold, and the Pixel Tablet.
