Since 2019, the users of Pixel devices have been enjoying the feature of Astrophotography, and according to the census, it is one of the favorites among Pixel users.
When the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G were first released, Google's Astrophotography mode (which was introduced a year ago alongside the Pixel 4) was available for use on both of the phones' primary and ultra-wide cameras. However, it appears that one feature that wasn't so stellar was astrophotography mode when used with the ultra-wide camera, which is apparently why Google has made a decision to disable it.

Sadly, that is now gone with the Google Camera 8.1 update.
Although there were some people that used this feature with the ultrawide angle lens, it was certainly not a popular feature, honestly. Users will have to simply uninstall the latest update and go back to version 7.6. Google has not clarified as to why the feature lost the ability to work with the ultra-wide lens, though it was presumably due to overall quality. That's the version that actually launched with the Pixel 5.
