How to Take Wide-angle Selfies on your Pixel 3 XL
The previous models of Google phones have all been known for their excellent camera quality and things are no different for your Google Pixel 3 XL handset. The smartphone has all the basics you need in a smartphone camera: a camera on both the front and back of the phone, along with excellent video modes and special features and not only are waiting to be discovered.
Some features include an AI-based burst photo mode that will automatically choose the best image, Photobooth, Super Res Zoom, the possibility to take well-lit photos even in low-light situations, even without using a flash, as well as a Group Selfie mode that captures a wider frame to ensure everyone gets in the shot.
Yes, it seems that your Pixel 3 XL smartphone uses dual front-facing cameras to help you take wide-angle selfies. Therefore, you can forget all about squeezing-in, holding a selfie stick or having to ask someone else – a friend or a complete stranger to take the photo that you have in mind. Google is really playing up the handset’s feature, with various commercials showing various users struggling to get everyone in the shot.
Even more, Google specifically took shots at Apple with the Group Selfies feature. The company claims that the devices’ second camera captures “184% more of the scene” than the iPhone Xs”. How to respond to that? My opinion is that you should better try it out and see that by youself:
How to Take Wide-angle Selfies on your Pixel 3 XL:
- When using the front-facing camera, you have to tap the magnifying glass to bring up the zoom interface;
- Then, you have to zoom out by adjusting the slider;
- Now, you are ready to take your ideal photo. Do not forget to smile!!!!!
As you see, with Group Selfies, wide angle selfies finally get more people in the frame. Better yet, this feature is said to also come to Google Pixel and Pixel 2 phones, with details on that forthcoming. Just keep checking on us in the next days!
