Hi there,
If you love the portrait light feature Google introduced with their Pixel 5 and 4a phones and want to install it on your device then you are in luck.

You need to be rooted with magisk to do that. All you have to do is fake your device model and you will get this feature almost immediately!

Steps -

1) Install Pixel props magisk module for your phone. If you are using Android 11 download it from here

And for Android 10 from here

Be aware! Don't flash Android 11 version on your Android 10 device and A10 version on A11 device.


2) Get portrait light magisk module from here


3) Download NgaResources app from here


4) After downloading the three from above, go to magisk, flash Pixel props magisk and Portrait light module.

5) Then install NgaResources app.
Reboot your phone and install Google Photos afterwards.

6) Open Google photos. After google photos loads up all your pictures. Select one of your selfies and try editing it from there. You will see a notification "updating photos editor".

7) Get out of Google photos.
2 or 3 minutes later you will see portrait, portrait light and black and white feature on Google photos.


Note :
1) If it doesn't work. Reboot your phone one or two times.

2) If you have Google Photos installed already then clear it's data and follow from step 6


This method will also enable other Pixel features e.g. background blur in old pictures.


Have a nice day!

Does this also enable using the Pixel launcher on e.g. a Samsung device?
No. Only for the features included in Google Photos. You can get pixel launcher from the internet, install it separately or go to magisk and search for Pixelify magisk module.

It will install other pixel features on your phone.
