Android 15 improves quality when using Pixel as a webcam

The highly anticipated second developer preview for Android 15 has finally been released, and it comes with some exciting updates for Pixel phone users. One of the key improvements in this update is the enhanced quality when using a Pixel phone as a webcam for a connected computer.

The update includes a new “HQ” toggle in the webcam preview, allowing users to further enhance the feed quality. This improvement is particularly noticeable in sharpness, especially under optimal lighting conditions. Despite the increased quality, users have reported minimal impacts on battery life and heat when using the “HQ” feature for extended periods, such as over two hours on a Pixel 8 Pro.

In addition to the quality enhancements, users are now required to use fingerprint or biometrics to authenticate the use of the webcam, adding an extra layer of security to the feature. Those who have already tried out the new update are encouraged to share their experiences using their Pixel as a webcam in the comments section.
