Google Pixel 6 Reportedly Getting Heart Rate Tracking Feature

Google has reportedly introduced heart rate and breathing functions on the Pixel 6 via the Google Fit app. These features have been available on the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a for a while and are now available to Pixel 6 owners.

It is said to be outside the “Early Entry” phase, meaning full implementation is underway. Regardless, some Pixel 6 users are reporting that the Magic Eraser tool has been removed since the last Google Photos update. Again, this seems to only affect some users as the update has been discontinued.

9to5Google reports that Google Pixel 6 devices are now getting heart rate and breath tracking capabilities via the Google Fit app. This app uses the phone’s camera to measure heart rate and respiratory rate.

Google warns that this feature is “not for medical use” and will be “improved and removed”. The report says that when you tested the heart rate monitoring feature, the results were accurate and similar to the Fitbit Tracker and Pixel 5. However, reading in a dark room is typically 30 beats per minute.

On Google Fit, Pixel 6 users can check if they have the feature by going to Browse > Vitals. Two cards appear at the bottom of the Home tab.

Additionally, some Pixel 6 users are reporting that the Magic Eraser tool has been removed since the last Google Photos app update. This feature allows users to remove unwanted objects from photos.

However, according to Android Central, version 5.67 of the Google Photos app has removed a feature that was useful to many Pixel 6 users. The implementation of this update has been discontinued and those who haven’t updated their Google Photos app can still use the Magic Eraser tool on their Pixel 6.

Google spokesman Alex Morrison told The Verge that the company had “identified the issue at an early stage of deployment.” [it] Provides latest photo updates and bug fixes soon
