Google Camera mod brings the Pixel 3’s Synthetic Fill Flash to the Pixel 2
The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL bring a lot of camera improvements to the Google flagship lineup. Google spent a decent part of its launch event focusing on the camera capabilities of the two flagships, but it did end up skipping out on several features due to the paucity of time that is generally available on stage. We covered several of these smaller improvements in a dedicated article, including the new Synthetic Fill Flash feature. Now, a new update to the Google Camera mod is bringing over the Synthetic Fill Flash from the Pixel 3 to the Pixel 2, and possibly other devices too.
XDA Senior Member cstark27‘s latest GCam Mod P3v11 gets a rebase on Google Camera 6.2.024. All Pixel 3 camera features except Motion Metering and Tracking Focus are available for the Pixel 2. This includes Synthetic Fill Flash and Launcher shortcuts for Portrait Mode and Night Sight. Do note that Android Oreo 8.1 is not supported for this release, so try this on Android Pie for now.
