Google Pixel 4 motion sensor tracks accurate sub-millimeter movements of users at high speed

Google in current time is not planning to authorize the third-party apps for Pixel 4 motion sense. However, the company has shown the possibility of these restrictions to change in the future.

Motion Sense Technology

Google’s Motion sense technology is powered with Soli radar backed chip in Google Pixel 4 and Google Pixel 4 XL. This motion sensor tracks accurate sub-millimeter movements of the users at high speed. Pixel 4 series users can operate and change songs, silent phone calls and control clock app by hand gestures. This sensor detects the phone user’s presence and keeps the phone unlocked as long as the user is looking at the phone.

The soli radar technology is the reason for pixel 4 phones ultra-fast face unlock system. Google completely eliminated the Fingerprint ID system from pixel 4 series. The face recognization system detects the user’s face as soon as the device is picked up.

Compatible streaming services with Motion Sense

There are some specific streaming service and two demo applications that can be controlled by users with hand gestures.

  • Amazon Music
  • Deezer
  • Google Play Music
  • iHeartRadio
  • Pandora
  • Spotify
  • Spotify Stations
  • YouTube Music
  • YouTube
  • Pokemon Wave Hello

When the announcement was made by the company about Motion sense technology, it was expected that the device would fully be controlled with hand movements. Now as we all know the feature has huge limitations. And now it is considered more disappointing that third party applications are not enabled with motion sensors.

Motion sense technology is not the only disappointment for users, Google’s Face unlock biometric feature also has drawbacks according to users. The phone can be unlocked with the user’s eyes open, any unregistered person can unlock the phone by just simply swiping if the users are sleeping or unconscious or unaware. The company might be working on improving this feature by updating an option for secure eyes open face unlock. However, this drawback is the reason for ultra-fast face unlocking.

Motion sense feature is a new technology that will require a good amount of time for perfection. In the upcoming time, we can expect this technology to include basic features too.
