Google Pixel 2 is missing this awesome original Pixel feature

Google's focus with Pixel phones has been on the photography front. Would their unlimited storage of original quality photos and videos also expire after three more years? This is a feature that is supposed to enable Google Pixel and Nexus users share their screens, something that should be handy when trying to help your mom solve a problem on her phone while you are away.

PS: Photos/videos uploaded through Pixel 2 devices in original quality will not be affected after 2020, just that those uploaded thereafter will be in high-quality. These changes also allow other apps to interact based on the battery level of a connected device, so hopefully it'll cut down on some of the extra apps you have to download to actually use your Bluetooth headsets, too. We have seen many apps making their way to the Play store in the past like the Dialer, Google Keyboard (now Gboard), Google Assistant and more. The At A Glance widget only resides on the homescreen and does not carry over to other screens. Once the users adjust the exposure by tapping and dragging their finger on the screen and selecting the object of focus, these settings can be locked into a place by simply tapping the new icon. Users will have to root their device, download a file that's already found on Pixel phones, load that file onto their device, and in some cases, go even further with additional, more complicated adjustments.

The top toolbar containing shortcuts for flash, autofocus, HDR+, and other functionalities now spans nearly all the way to the hamburger menu in the top left corner of the user interface. In addition, the front camera also provides a "face retouching" option which will make the skin texture slightly blur and retouch small spots.

This is a feature that's been available on Google Home since day one, and it's something that I find myself regularly using.

That means Google Pixel owners should still be able to take advantage of free photo storage in Google's cloud for their entire lives - assuming they keep hold of the phone.

The prime reason behind this change was company's intent to maintain a sync across its mobile software portfolio.
