Google Brought Portrait Mode: For What Purpose?

Portrait mode has been one of the most sought out feature on camera’s smartphones since Apple popularised it in 2016. Now, smartphones are not the only device that will support portrait mode.

Google recently decided to offer the portrait mode feature to Chrome OS devices. However, for now, new modes are available on Google Pixel Slate.

Google Brought Portrait Mode for Several Devices, What are they?

“Portrait mode is now available on Google Pixel Slate and we are working to bring it to other Chromebooks,” Google said in a blog post quoted by Android Authority on Sunday (08/18/2019).

Introducing Portrait mode to Google devices seems strange, as portrait mode isn’t the type of feature that you usually associate with Chromebook and ChromeOS tablets.

However, Google does not appear to be bringing portrait mode to all Chrome OS-based devices. As some devices with low quality selfie cameras might not be able to properly utilize portrait mode.

This is actually not the first time that Portrait mode technology exists on a computer. Skype previously introduced background blur during a video call earlier this year.

However, the fact that portrait mode is now available on Chrome OS shows how much progress the technology has. This mode initially requires two cameras when first launched.

With the advancement in technology, now it is common to see portrait mode with a single camera in the smartphone industry. Apart from that, portrait mode isn’t the only feature that will arrive for Chrome OS this month.

Google confirms Chrome OS 76 will also offer more media control. Specifically, you can now open the system menu to view all applications and audio playing tabs.
