Google wants to make video calls from your Android phone a lot easier

If you are curious about what's so fancy about it, well, the search bar has been moved to what may be an awkward position for some (all the way at the bottom), but other than that, it's a pretty straightforward launcher. Google has not yet released this version of the launcher for any devices outside the Pixel 2 family at this time. Enabling Auto-Flash will now also let you know that the dual-LED flash of the device will fire when you take your shot, whereas the front camera mode now offers a "Face retouching" toggle which will make the skin textures of your face less sharp and deal with some small spots. That includes the new Pixel 2 camera - though not all features therein work with all smartphones as such.

The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL were just announced last week, along with Google's own protective cases.

Of note, there are now two new versions of the Google Camera app floating around in the world.

The Google Pixel 2, like the original Pixel, is expected to once again provide superior camera quality, and for those who want to get a slice of that action right now, XDA Developers has the goods. And make sure you understand that whatever happens with that file or your smartphone or anything else, for that matter, SlashGear will not be held accountable. They've also pointed to a new Reddit-posted Magisk Module to get a few of the animations from the Pixel 2 launcher working as they should - ideally. The file is a tiny 2.5MB, as there's not much going on under the hood. Fortunately, you don't have to have wait any longer or have a Pixel device.
