Pixel 4 will be coming with Motion Sense, and here is what it can do


The Google Pixel 4 series is scheduled to launch in New York on October 15. Days after some characteristics of the upcoming phone have been disclosed, more data is now available indicating the appropriate locations and applications to function with the Motion Sense function, as well as other applications, wallpapers and topics that have now been leaked online.

The Motion Sense is going to bring in features like,

  • Reach: The sensor will detect your hand reaching the device and will reduce the volume of the ringer, alarm, etc.
  • Swipe: Once you move your hand over the skin, it will ignore the call, snooze the alarm and so on.
  • Flick: Using this gesture, you will be able to skip the music tracks.
  • Presence: With the help of the front camera, the Pixel 4 will detect your presence and keep it unlocked.
