Google Pixel 4 Detects automatic car crashes and calls 911.        

Google supposedly updated its’ Emergency Information ‘ app on Pixel phones to confirm that detection of vehicle crashes is coming to U.S. Pixel phones. The app was also renamed to’ Personal Safety’ as part of a fresh update, which bumps its version number to 1.0.271601625, according to XDA Developers. While Google has been testing the automatic collision detection function for the previous few months, the study says that it was most probable accidental to update the rollout.

As stated in the study, the Play Store listing (not accessible from India) confirms that the new feature will reach Pixel devices in the U.S., although it is uncertain whether it will be available on all Pixel phones or only on the upcoming Pixel 4 series.

If the app detects a vehicle crash, as per the listing, it will be able to automatically dial 911, which will be a huge advantage in the event that the user is disabled in any manner. While in some nations the app is listed on the Play Store, India is not on the supported market list.

The’ Personal Safety ‘ app utilizes accelerometer and microphone place and sensor measurements to identify vehicle accidents, according to Google. If it believes it’s engaged in a crash, it’s going to vibrate and play a noise at peak volume to get a user reaction.

If there is no reaction, the device will dial 911 automatically and provide the emergency operator with the location information. The capacity of users to share their emergency status with their contacts is another fresh function in the app.
