A list of apps that support the "Motion Sense" gesture control of the Google Pixel 4 has been discovered in the phone's pre-release software, and all but one are audio-focused apps, 9to5Google reports. The list was discovered in the Motion Sense app of the non-released phone and contains a total of nine software; Amazon Music, Deezer, Google Play Music, iHeartRadio, Pandora, Spotify, Spotify Stations, YouTube Music and YouTube.
While one separate leak suggested that the gesture control of the phone will be able to check the phone's lock screen and turn off calls, this list implies that the app-specific gestures of the phone may be focused primarily on music playback. Both the original Google announcement of the feature, as well as a leaked promotional video, showed gestures used to jump forward and backward through tracks.
Together with the list of apps, 9to5Google also reports that Google expects gesture control to be available in 38 countries. Although the list covers most large areas, including the US, UK, Canada, France and Germany, there are a number of strange omissions, namely Japan, Mexico, India, Australia and New Zealand. Motion Sense relies on Google & # 39; s Project Soli technology, which the company needs in every country because of its dependence on radar technology.
9to5Google notes that both the app list and the list of countries may not be definitive because they come from a device with pre-release software. It also speculates that the list of apps might just be Google officially sanctioning, while others can also add their own support for the functions of the hardware. We won't know for sure until the phone is officially released, which is amazing (considering the amount of leaks) is still more than a month away.
