At today’s event dedicated to the new Pixel 7 smartphone, Google unveiled a new feature that will help blind and partially sighted users take better selfies. Guided Frame is the name of a voice assistant that tells users where and how to hold the phone to take a good picture.
The assistant will ask you to raise, lower, or turn sideways until the AI decides you’re in the best position to shoot. After that, it even automatically triggers the shutter, notifying the user that the picture has been taken. This is one of the many new features the company unveiled at today’s Google Pixel 7 presentation, designed to highlight the accessibility and inclusivity of the new smartphone.
New features also include True Tone, designed to accurately reproduce human skin in photos. A number of professional photographers and artists helped the company develop this feature. Another new feature – Night Sight – works in conjunction with the new Tensor G2 processor, allowing the new Google Pixel 7 to shoot quickly and efficiently in low light conditions.
