Pixel 4's super fast new Google Assistant only works with gesture navigation

Google introduced and launched the new Google Pixel 4, Pixel 4 XL, Pixelbook Go, Pixel Earbuds, and Nest Mini during its annual hardware event in NY on Tuesday. I actually thought Google's USB-C buds were quite good - certainly the best I've heard among bundled earbuds that aren't meant to create an acoustic seal.

Google's Pixel 4 will not be available on the Indian market due to critical biometric components that operate on a frequency which is not allowed for use in India, the company said to CNN Business. "According to reports, Google Pixel 4 mobiles will offer far better lowlight photographs and include a particular" astrophotography" style for night sky photography. The telephoto lens will work with Super Res Zoom.

With Pixel 4, Google fixes that in software. However, its presence on the firm's new flagship phone can only bode well. Google representatives didn't indicate to Android Police whether this decision could change in the future.

The BBC noted that in leaks of the phone before launch, a set up screen suggested eyes should be open. For example, you can ask the Assistant to "show my photos from Thailand" and then say "the ones in Chatuchak Market".

The Motion Sense feature has caused release issues not only in India, but also in Japan where it will be available in the spring of 2020. In fact, if you're asleep and someone points your phone at your face - voila! This lets the smartphone support air gestures - so you can wave your hands at your phone to execute certain actions. Users can also easily search within your recordings to quickly find a specific word or sound.

Google was so sure of Face Unlock's strength that it removed all fingerprint sensors from Pixel 4 handsets, leaving its brand new facial recognition system as the only biometrics authentication system available on the device. The phone is scheduled to go on sale on October 24.
