Microsoft Pix to Be a Better iPhone Camera App

Microsoft Pix is an iPhone app launched by Microsoft. Microsoft is of the opinion, that it can can make viewing better as it makes use of artificial intelligence. In addition to automatically enhancing pictures, it also improves photos by adjusting camera settings and thereby selecting the best photo. Its aim is to provide better pictures of people and it has an algorithm to choose the best shot. It captures a few images, even before the button is clicked and a few afterwards.

According to Josh Weisberg, a Microsoft researcher and former team photographer for the Seattle Seahawks:
"If you see it happen and you aren’t already taking pictures, it’s too late, you missed the shot".
It can turn any video into a high-speed time-lapse video and can also be used just to stabilize video at normal speed as it is compatible with Hyperlapse technology. Pix only takes live images when it thinks there is enough action to be compelling compared to Apple Live Photos and one can enjoy the benefits of it on iPhone 5s, 6, 6s and newer iPads.
It has an ability to synchronize its photo database with Apple’s native camera roll, which allows it to save images and videos in Apple’s camera roll in addition to its own gallery. The interesting features, like adding support for Android and slower-speed video, bringing over the beauty mode originally developed in the Microsoft Selfie app, are in the mind of Microsoft, which you might experience in the near future.
