Google Pixel smartphones are getting a June 2021 update that brings a slew of new features and changes to the Google smartphone. The June update brings new features like astrophotography in Google Camera, new locked folder in Google Photos, the ability to answer or reject calls using Assistant, and an intuitive copy and paste in Gboard, Google said in a blog post. With the June 2021 update, Google Pixel’s car crash detection in Personal Safety app is being made available in more countries, along with Call Screen and Recorder features. Google has also brought new Pride-themed wallpapers, ringtones, and notification sounds to celebrate the June pride month.
In the June 2021 update, the most notable change is the presence of astrophotography in Night Sight to help take better photos of the night sky. This feature is available on the Pixel 4 and later smartphones only. Pixel users also get three pride-themed wallpapers created by London-based artist Ashton Attzs and new pride-themed ringtones and notifications created by LGBTQ+ artists and YouTube creators to celebrate the Pride month.
