Motion Sense Face Unlock In Place Of Fingerprint Scanner

Motion Sense is one feature of the phone Pixel 4 that has grabbed huge popularity. It is located just above the phone’s screen and is impressive. The feature uses a blend of infrared, tiny radar, and sensors for allowing the users to unlock their device with their faces. The face-unlock feature is available for the first time in Pixel 4 and 4 XL. This feature is entirely secure, and you can effectively use it for Google Pay payments and password applications.

The face-unlock feature on both these phones is quite fast. The feature works on radar technology that detects the hands of the users as they reach for the phones. It further prepares the unlocking of infrared cameras. The Motion Sense technology on these devices can even be used for other jobs and situations. Take, for instance, users in the habit of listening to music on Spotify can simply swipe through to get to the next line-up of music. Not to forget the live wallpapers of Google that react to hand movements. Users cans wipe their hands through the air for dismissing alarms and calls.

Pixel 4 speaks of an all-new and improved design with a square camera component belted in at the sides. The edges of the phone feature an aluminum band that looks quite slick and tidy.
