Last night, Google announced its latest feature drop for Pixel smartphones, including an easy way to access Snapchat, the ability to use your Pixel device as a digital car key, bass level controls on Pixel Buds A-Series and more. Find the full list of features below.
- With Quick Tap to Snap, you can access Snapchat directly from your lock screen, making Pixel the fastest Snap maker phone. The Quick Tap to take photo feature is available for all Pixel 4a with 5G or newer Pixel phones. Plus, starting this month, you’ll be able to add a new Pixel-specific Lens – Pixel Face – to your Snaps.
- Google has partnered with BMW to enable digital car keys for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. On select 2020-2022 BMW models in certain countries, you can now unlock and lock your car by tapping your phone on the doorknob and you can start the car by placing the Pixel on top Read the interior key and press the engine start button.
- Ultra-wideband is now enabled on the Pixel 6 Pro. This technology improves Nearby Sharing so you can quickly and securely send files, videos, map locations, and more to other nearby ultra-wideband devices.
- Conversation mode, an early access feature in the Sound Amplifier app, is now in early beta on Pixel. This feature uses on-device machine learning to help people better hear conversations in noisy environments by tuning their chat partner and eliminating competing noise.
- Google has updated the Now Playing experience on Pixel to help you find your next favorite song. As always, Now Playing’s auto-recognition is done entirely on-device. If Now Playing hasn’t automatically identified a song playing nearby, turn on the new search button and tap let Pixel find it for you (available on Pixel 4 or newer Pixel phones).
- Google is introducing improved bass level control to the Pixel Buds A-Series. With any Android 6.0+ device, you can now open the Pixel Buds app and use the slider to adjust the bass from -1 to +4, giving you twice the bass range available.
- To celebrate International Day of Persons with Disabilities, Google teamed up with Dana Kearly, a multidisciplinary disability artist from Vancouver BC, to create three stunning new wallpapers for the Credentialed Culture collection.
- Car crash detection is currently supported in Taiwan, Italy, and France, in addition to Spain, Ireland, Japan, United Kingdom, Australia, Singapore, and the United States.
- Google is enabling new languages for transcription in the Voice Recorder app. These include Japanese, French, and German on Pixel 3 and newer Pixel phones.
