To put it in simpler words, now it will be easier for the users to shoot quality photos on third-party apps such as WhatsApp, Snapchat, Instagram and nearly any other app that uses the Pixel 2 camera.

Every month, Google posts a new security update for the Nexus and Pixel line of devices.

Google says the technology was always available in the main Pixel 2 camera app.

Pixel Visual Core is built to do the heavy-lifting during image processing while using lesser power. If you own a Pixel 2, however, in addition to the latest security update, you'll also gain better picture quality from your phone's camera. This is especially noticeable in shots against light, which retain more details in bright and dark areas, when compared to photos taken on competitor's devices.The rendering of an HDR+ image however, usually takes longer, because several raw images must be meshed together.

Google is turning on the Pixel 2's Pixel Visual Core for third-party apps. Google will also release new winter sports-themed AR Stickers for Pixel 2. The feature is being made available through Google's February monthly Pixel software update. Google's RAISR relies on machine learning and stands for Rapid and Accurate Image Super-Resolution, which does upsampling of lower resolution images to give more detailed higher quality photos. But Pixel 2's single lens competes with Apple iPhone X's dual camera lens.

United Nations chief congratulates US, Russia on nuclear arsenal cuts, urges further disarmament
In a separate statement, the Russian Foreign Ministry also scathingly criticized a different United States nuclear review, saying it could lower the threshold for using nuclear weapons.

Back in December 2017, developers had received third-party access to the chip with the Android 8.1 update to prepare their apps for the forthcoming feature.

Packed with a 12.2MP sensor with f/1.8 and optical image stabilization (OIS), the Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL are near the top of the camera spec chain compared to competing flagship smartphones, like the iPhone X and Samsung Galaxy S8.

The Pixel Core Processor itself has been created to do a bunch of the heavy lifting when it comes to processing pictures, but importantly uses less power than conventional means.

Response to Pixel Visual Core is mixed, with some raving about their results, and others hardly noticing the difference. These include less power usage, sharper zoomed shots and Zero Shutter Lag.
