How to enable Astro Photography mode on Poco M2 Pro Google Camera?

By default the astrophotography mode is not enabled on this GCam. In case you want to change the setting, follow the below instructions to enable or disable the astrophotography mode.

  • Go to GCam Settings
  • Scroll down and go to Advanced settings
  • Then scroll down almost to the end and enable Astrophotography Mode under Astrophotography settings.

Below are the screenshots that shows how to enable the astrophotography mode.

How to shoot in astrophotography mode?

Google Camera version 7.0 and up comes with Astrophotography mode by default, but there are conditions that must be met to enable astrophotography mode. Usually, following conditions must be met to capture in Astrophotography mode if manually not force enabled:

  • It can be enabled on Night Sight mode (only)
  • The phone must be kept static (use a tripod or keep the phone somewhere to keep it static)
  • There must be low light condition
  • It may take few seconds for this mode to come up when the above conditions are met
– When the display shows something like “Astrophotography is on” or “Capturing cuttlefish” (or on some GCam ports nothing is shown at all) while capturing photo in Night Sight mode, then it is shooting in astrophotography mode otherwise not.
– If the GCam takes a lot of time usually more than 30 seconds then it is capturing in astro mode.
– When I kept the phone static in front of a good light source, the Astrophotography mode did not turn on.
So, make sure it is a low light environment.

New features are keep on coming on the Google Camera app and hence there could be many versions of these ported apps for Poco M2 Pro. This page will always have all available working Google Camera for Poco M2 Pro.
