"Why are the video file sizes so large on the Google Pixel 6, and how can I reduce them?"

The Pixel 6's larger encode bitrate contributes to the increased file sizes, resulting in higher resolution and bit depths.

Features like Cinematic Blur and stabilization algorithms also increase file sizes, as they enhance video quality but require more storage space.

Google has acknowledged the larger video sizes and offers solutions like automatic video compression and storage options like Google Drive or YouTube.

The Google Pixel 6 can record video up to 4K60 with its main camera or 4K30 with the ultrawide, which also affects file sizes.

Enabling the "Store videos efficiently" option in the Camera settings can significantly reduce file sizes.

The default setting on the Pixel 6 is to record videos in high quality, which results in larger file sizes.

Reducing the video resolution or frame rate can also reduce file sizes.

The Pixel 6 Pro's 2x zoom level allows for 4K60 recording, which increases file sizes.

The Live HDR Video feature on the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro adds to the file size due to the increased data required to process HDR.

4K Time Lapse recording on the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro also generates larger file sizes due to the high-quality video and stabilization required.

The larger battery in the Pixel 6 Pro contributes to the phone's overall size and weight, which may not directly affect video file sizes but contributes to the device's overall design.

Google is working on optimizing the video encoding process in future software updates to reduce storage consumption.
