Google Pixel 4's Motion Sense gestures likely to work in 53 regions and support 23 media apps at launch: Report

Earlier reports suggested that Motion Sense on Google Pixel 4 will only work in 38 regions and support 9 media apps. The Project Soli radar-based technology is expected to be the big new feature on fourth generation Pixel devices.

Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are set to launch in New York on October 15. The fourth generation Pixel devices are expected to be the first device being designed by the HTC team acquired by Google. Ahead of the launch, the search giant has made sure that it stays ahead of the rumor mill. The company first tweeted the rear design of the smartphone and then confirmed inclusion of Project Soli sensor module. With Pixel 4 series, Google will add facial recognition and gesture interface as well. However, this gesture-based interface will be limited to markets since it relies on advanced radar technology.

Now, a new report from XDA Developers reveals that Motion Sense, will work in 53 regions and support 23 media apps. The information about Motion Sense, Google’s name for Project Soli, comes via a pre-release APK. The feature will allow users to skip songs, snooze alarms and silence phone calls with gestures. The company has been working on Project Soli radar for a few years now. In order for it to work, Motion Sense needs to be certified with regulatory agencies of countries to transmit radio frequencies of that range. It has already been learnt that it won’t work in markets like India, Japan, Mexico, Australia and New Zealand. Also Read - Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL launch set for October 15 in New York

The pre-release APK for Motion Sense has now revealed the complete list of regions and media apps that will be supported at the time of launch. It will work across 53 regions and support 23 media apps. This is higher than previous report which claimed support for 38 regions and 9 media apps. There is a possibility that Google will add support for more regions as soon as the device goes on sale. The list was reportedly found in an internal Google database and comes from a config called “mcc_whitelist”. The list of supported apps comes from a config called “media_app_whitelist”, both belonging to “oslo”, which is the codename for Motion Sense.

While India is not mentioned in the list of supported regions, the mention of apps like JioSaavn, Gaana, Hungama and Wynk shows the possibility. It is possible that Google is still working to gain necessary certifications but has already worked with app developers to enable support for gestures. It could also be possible that these apps are getting support for those who use it outside India. A leak from This is Tech Today has already detailed how Motion Sense gestures will work. The Pixel 4 has leaked so often in the past few weeks that there is little left to imagination.
