Google Reveals “Motion-Sense” on the Pixel 4

It’s no hidden story that Google has been struggling with its smartphone business. Though the Google Pixel is loved by tech enthusiasts alike for its no-bullshit stock Android experience and solid camera performance, the mainstream population just isn’t buying the Pixel anymore. Why is that you ask? Purely because Pixels have a history of muted design and no stand-out features that capture the average consumer’s attention.

Boring design.

In a bid to differentiate itself from the competition, Google has teased motion gestures on the Pixel 4. The video released by Google shows a woman swiping through the interface by just waving her hand! Unlike the primitive technology used on yesteryear flagship the Galaxy S4, this seems to work from a longer distance (about 2 feet from what we can observe in the video) and seems less gimmicky.

This feature dubbed “Motion-Sense” is based on Google’s Soli project which was started over 4 years ago. Motion-Sense makes use of a complex radar system placed on top of the display that can sense even the smallest of movements to trigger tasks like skipping songs, snoozing alarms, and silencing phone calls. Google says this feature will be available in all countries where their Pixel lineup is on sale.

Another major feature announced for the Pixel 4 is face-unlock which uses a dedicated infrared camera and a dot projector for more secure face unlocks akin to Apple’s Face ID. Ever since the leaked images of the Pixel 4’s top bezel came out there’s been a lot of speculation as to what the array of sensors in juxtaposition to the earpiece will be used for. Now we finally know!

Though Google’s face-unlock technology seems to be late to the party, the Motion-Sense technology is something we’re quite excited for considering the huge potential it has to make interactions with your smartphone more productive and simple.
