To give you more ideas, here are the new features that have arrived on your Pixel handsets. These include Google’s Night Sight Timelapse Video and other advanced features.
Photos Locked Folder
Although the Google Photos Locked Folder was announced back at I/O 2021, the feature is arriving with the June Pixel Feature Drop for the first time. The feature has existed on quite a few gallery management apps for a while and lets you create a password-protected folder for any images and videos that you want to keep private or securely stored behind a passcode.
However, Google has added a new toggle in the upper right of the display so that you can toggle so that any photos you take are instantly sent to the Locked Folder within Photos. A purple padlock in the usual mini preview window will denote any images/videos that are being sent directly here. You can easily view all of the photos you’ve taken and sent to the Locked Folder by viewing the preview and tapping the view images icon.
Night Sight Timelapse Video
Aside from the new Google Photos Locked Folder Feature, the tech giant manufacturer also confirmed that the new Night Sight Timelaps feature has also arrived. Based on its name, this new camera capability is quite great for nighttime photos and videos.
Google explained that this new camera feature is limited to the Pixel 4 and newer and is best when used in an area without masses of light pollution.
Assistant’s New Decline Or Accept Call Feature
On the other hand, your Pixel smartphone will also have the new Assistant Decline/Accept capability. This new feature will allow you to shout shout “Hey Google, answer the call” or “Hey Google, decline call” and let your favorite voice assistant take care of it. This is perfect if you can’t reach your phone or are busy doing something else.
Aside from these, there are other new Pixel smartphone capabilities you could be getting from the latest June Pixel Drop Feature 2021 Update;
