We can verify this because of evidence we discovered in the system applications of the Google Pixel 2. With that Google also said that users of both these smartphones will get unlimited photo/video uploads in original quality, but, only till January 15, 2021. Pixel and Nexus owners of other countries will only see the error when going to play store. on the other hand, other device holders are getting an incompatible message on play store.
When Google Duo was unveiled a year ago, it posed as a dedicated video calling app, but a year is quite a long period in smartphone technology.
The new app has changed the placement of the top tool bar which included shortcuts for flash, auto focus, HDR+ and other features. First, it is the official battery management app from Google. 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.
For those who aren't aware, Google's Photos cloud-storage service allows users to save their photos/videos in two forms: original and high-quality. There is also a slightly different animation when expanding folders.
Do note that Pixel style navigation bars are not included, for that you have to install Xposed framework separately anyway let's get back to the Pixel 2 Launcher.
We haven't tested the steps above, and XDA says that some developers have found that it still results in uploaded photos and videos counting against their Google Drive storage. For instance, "HDR+ enhanced" has become part of the on/off toggles and the photo viewer has been changed significantly that looks similar to the Google Photos.
