Google is releasing a new Pixel Feature Drop today. The latest update improves the camera’s capabilities Pixel 6/6 Pro devices that are approaching their second year of life. It also brings others with it latest generation features for older generation Pixel smartphones.

Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro users are up to speed on Night Sight as soon as the update is released. Google says the feature “provides even faster images in low light” and cites the Tensor chip’s “improved algorithms.” It remains to be seen are the night shots better than those produced by Pixel 7/7 Pro. I will test it when the software update arrives on my device. At least it’s a look at how Google can entice users of aging Pixel devices to stick around instead of jumping ship to iOS..

Health Connect on A pixel

Gmove on, Pixel devices comes too be in Health Connect API. With Health Connect, you can share health and fitness information more efficiently between applications that support it. Current apps that support syncing include MyFitnessPal, Samsung Health, and Peloton. Previously, Health Connect was only on Android 13 and you had to download it separately from Play Store. It will come too by default on all other phones once Android 14 will be released later this year.

Pixel 4a is getting modern artificial intelligence characteristics

The Pixel 4a is also coming some of the latest generation Pixel features. Pixel 4a and newer devices can use the Magic Eraser feature in the Photos app.. The feature is already available to anyone with a Google One subscription on both iOS and Android devices. for Pixel 4a and older phones, Google has too Direct My Call+ available, so you can take a peek at the options in the automated system’s call menu before you lose your temper. It’s a good ability when you can’t afford it to sit in the waiting room.

The purpose of the Google Pixel smartphone is to provide a blueprint for Android phones across the ecosystem, and Google uses it as a platform for the magic of machine learning. That’s part of why it does what it does chips for their smartphones. Although older Pixel devices run on Qualcomm’s chips instead of Google’s TPUit will be interesting to see how the company is making more of its AI-infused features compatible with older hardware.
