Google has released the first major software update of 2024 for Pixel 8 Pro, the newest member of the Pixel smartphone series. This update allows users to better monitor their health and benefit from artificial intelligence-supported tools in daily life.
New health features of Pixel 8 Pro
One of the most striking innovations is a thermometer feature that is exclusive to the Pixel 8 Pro model and works with the device’s internal temperature sensor. Users will be able to take temperature by scanning their forehead to see if their headache is from spending too much time in front of the screen or is a sign of an actual fever. The resulting data can be synchronized with Fitbit profiles and integrated with other health metrics.
The “Circle to Search” feature, a new artificial intelligence-supported search tool, is also offered to users by taking advantage of the power of the Tensor G3 chip. Thanks to this tool, users will be able to draw a circle on an object on their phone screen and have the artificial intelligence search for that object, text or anything they draw. This feature looks like it will come in handy in future espionage and detective-themed shows.
Another feature that comes with the new update is “Photomoji”. As the name suggests, this tool turns your favorite photos into emojis or reactions. “Magic Compose” is similar to the “Magic Editor” tool designed for texts. Google states that this tool offers stylized suggestions appropriate to the context of your messages.
Finally, the “Quick Share” icon, which allows you to share content with nearby devices, is among the new features. Google continues to work to make this feature compatible with Windows PCs.
With the new update for Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro models, Google also offers a mint green color option for these devices. This color option, which attracts attention with its cute appearance, is offered to the users. Distribution of the new feature package started on Thursday
This update from Google offers a wide range of innovations for smartphone users, from health tracking to artificial intelligence-supported tools, allowing them to further personalize and facilitate their daily technology use. Pixel 8 Pro users will be able to further increase the potential of their devices with this update.
