The company initially debuted the Faster Night Sight feature with the Google Pixel 7 and 7 Pro devices last year. Now, the Pixel 6 series is also getting the improved variant of Night Sight, with the latest Camera app version.
According to the info, the Android maker touts Night Sight photos that have “less motion blur since exposures can be half as long as before.” Google credits “updates to HDR+ with Bracketing and new ML techniques to reduce noise.”
Compared to the current time, the Faster Night Sight needs just half of the normal exposure time to produce beautiful low-light images that are sharper than before.
With the March 2023 Android Feature Drop, Google announced the arrival of this new Google Camera feature for the Pixel 6 series (6a excluded). Moreover, there are general improvements in camera stability and performance in certain conditions.

Google Messages updates its share sheet with a new conversation picker
Google is testing a new way to share and forward texts and chats from Messages for Android that is a Conversation Picker feature. Instead of a pop-up window, you will see a full-screen page where you can choose who to send the message to.
Users can search for a contact or choose one from the list of recent conversations. In addition, they can view the last message in each conversation to help them make a decision as well as select multiple recipients and tap Next to proceed to the chat screen.
The new page also shows all your contacts below the recent conversations. However, it does not show their phone numbers, which might be confusing if users have multiple entries for the same person.
This new feature is not widely available yet, even in the beta version of Google Messages. It might be a server-side switch that Google is testing with a small group of users. It is not clear when it will be rolled out to everyone.
