New Google Pixel Update Enhances Photo and Video Quality for Instagram Posts

 

Today, Google unveiled its newest suite of Pixel-related features for smartphones, tablets, and wearables. These improvements include support for Instagram’s 10-bit videos, an extension of Circle to the search function, the ability for the original Pixel watch to recognize workouts automatically, and the ability to selectively screen apps for different Pixel devices.

Instagram users may now record and share 10-bit HDR movies, according to the firm. It is also introducing support for Instagram users to share Ultra HDR photos. Users of the Pixel 7, Pixel 7 Pro, Pixel 8, Pixel 8 Pro, and Pixel Fold can access this feature.

With the launch of Samsung’s Galaxy S24 series in January, Google debuted its “Circle to search” function, which allows users to circle an object on the screen to do a search. Users of the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro were able to access the feature later in the month, according to the firm. According to Google, owners of the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will soon be able to utilize this capability.

Google has enhanced its call screening feature with features including discussion mode. In this mode, the new Pixel Drop includes a “Hello” chip that prompts the caller to talk with Google Assistant. If you are unable to screen the call immediately, the assistant may also request that the caller wait.

Pixel Watch updates

In order to improve user training, Google is releasing two updates for the original Pixel Watch: Pace training and Heart Zone training. When you deviate from the pace range you set before the workout, the pace training mode uses motion sensors and GPS to alert you. Similar to this, heart rate ranges are monitored by the Heart Zone training mode.
