Camera feature found on Pixel 3a is rolling out now to all Pixel phones
A feature found on the Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL camera is now rolling out to the remainder of the Pixel family through a software update. All Pixel models, including the 2016 OG models, will soon be able to take time-lapse video recordings. This new feature can be found on version 6.2.030 of the Google Camera app.

Once the Google Camera app on your Pixel is updated, you will find the Time Lapse mode by clicking on the More option. That will bring up a number of different modes including Slow Motion, Playground and Time Lapse. With the new feature, you'll be able to select time frames from 5x (50 seconds of action for each 10 seconds of video recorded), 10x (100 seconds of action for each 10 seconds of video recorded), 30x (300 seconds of action for each 10 seconds of video recorded) and 120x (20 minutes of action for each 10 seconds of video recorded).

While recording, a progress circle makes its way around the Record/Pause/Stop button at the bottom of the screen. You're better off watching the digital counter that is located above the bar with the speed options. On the left of the arrow, you'll see the actual recording time, and to the right of the arrow, you'll see how many seconds of time-lapse photography has been produced. Keep in mind that you can pause or stop recording at any time, or keep the camera going.

Our Pixel 2 XL received this update literally just minutes ago. To see if the update has arrived on your Pixel, open the Google Play Store app and tap the hamburger menu on the left side of the search bar. Click on My apps & games and look to see if the Google Camera app has received an update. If so, tap on the box marked Update and soon you'll be taking Time Lapse videos with your Pixel camera.
