So whether an individual took the photo years ago, or they forgot to turn on portrait mode, they can easily give each picture an artistic look with Portrait Blur in Google Photos.
Put an end to robocalls
The latest update to Call Screen on Pixel 4 through Google Assistant helps users to automatically screen unknown callers and filter out detected robocalls. When it is not a robocall, your phone might ring a few moments later with a helpful context about who is calling and why. Call Screen works on the user’s device and does not use Wi-Fi or data. It makes the screening fast and the content private to the user.
Improved video calls on Duo
Video calls are better on Pixel 4 with new Duo features that let users focus on conversations instead of logistics. Auto-framing keeps its face-centered during their Duo video calls. If another person joins you in the shot, the camera automatically adjusts to keep both persons in the frame.
Now, the playback on your Duo calls is even smoother too. When a bad connection leads to spotty audio, a machine learning model on your Pixel 4 predicts the sound and helps them to keep the conversation going with minimum disruptions.
