In addition to stickers on Messages, Night Sight in Snapchat, and more,
Google releases Feature Drops for Pixel phones four times a year in addition to significant operating system upgrades and security fixes. Pixels gains a few minor enhancements with this round of updates, but they’re still interesting and entertaining in and of themselves.
This month’s Feature Drop offers a few minor tweaks to Pixel devices. Google’s Night Sight is the most notable new feature in this wave of updates. As a result, the Snapchat app’s low-light capabilities have been improved. Snapchat users will like this new feature. There’s no word yet on whether Google intends to make Night Sight available to other social networking applications.
For Android users with hearing impairments, Live Caption is an excellent accessibility solution since it provides real-time audio captions. For the most part, Live Caption is accurate enough to provide the viewer a general idea of what’s going on in the video.
Live Caption is now available on phone calls as a result of this update. It is possible to read what the other person is saying and then write something back to them, which will be read aloud on their side.
Duo video chat software gained several FaceTime-like capabilities with the release of the Galaxy S22, including watch parties that enabled you to share material with other callers. Duo will now allow Pixel users to create YouTube viewing parties. For those of you who like to communicate visually, your Pixel will now offer you stickers depending on the words you type in Messages.
A new version of the fantastic At a Glace widget is also on the way! Additionally, the widget will be able to display the battery levels of your Pixel and Bluetooth-enabled devices. Personal safety checks, earthquake warnings, and reminders to turn off an alarm when the following day is a holiday are all included in this. Additionally, the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will be the only Pixel devices to have the ability to understand Spanish in films and other material and translate it to one of the other supported languages.
Starting today, all Pixel 3a, 4a, 4 XL, and 4a 5G owners will be able to download the latest version of Android (March 7). This isn’t the first time that the Tensor-powered Pixels have lagged behind their Snapdragon-powered siblings when it comes to software upgrades — this is just the latest. Source
