hp google photo app

Most smartphone camera upgrades have focused on improving the actual camera, like packing more pixels or a bigger sensor into a limited space. Now companies like Google are using computing to take photos to the next level. The Pixel 2 smartphone is able to detect the outline of a subject and throw the background out of focus, and the company recently released a few small photography apps. Look for big improvements in how your photos look, like less noise in low light, and fun new tricks.
