Google has announced a new Pocket app for Pixel smartphones that lets users shoot video content and turn it into fun music and video cut-ups. Users can also layer sounds, add visual effects, create patterns and beats and mix it all together to make their own unique tracks. It is available for download on Play Store for Pixel 5 and newer Pixels models.


Vaccine card

Google is also making it easier for users to access their vaccine cards. The company said that now when users take a screenshot of their digital vaccine card, they can add a shortcut to easily access it directly from their home screen. This feature is available in Australia, Canada and the US.


Air quality alerts

Google is also bringing air quality alerts to its Pixel smartphones. Google said that its new feature will give Pixel phone users air quality alerts for their current location. However, this feature will be available to users in the US, Australia and India only.


Sound Amplifier

Google is rolling out a sound amplifier feature in Google Meet’s app. Google said that the Google Meet noise reduction feature will filter out background noises like traffic or a dog barking, so that users hear clearly no matter what their surroundings are. An interesting thing about this feature is that users don’t need a Workplace account. The company said that this feature is available to all Pixel users.


Real Tone Filters

Google, back at I/O 2022, announced a feature called Real Tone Filters for Google Photos. These filters are designed to work well across skin tones. This feature is available to all Pixel users in Google Photos app’s edit menu.
