The feature uses location data, motion sensors, and ambient sound to determine if you’ve been in an accident.
It raises an alarm to make sure you’re okay and to call the emergency numbers you specified earlier so you can get help in time.
Activate the feature in a pixel phone
- Find the previously installed Personal Security app and tap on it.
- After opening the app, tap the gear icon at the top left of the app.
- Turn on the button next to the Traffic Accident Detection option.
- Also on this page, you can click on the Try Demo option below to see how the feature works.
When the phone detects that you have had an accident on the road, it will vibrate violently and sound an alarm. Then the voice assistant will speak to you, telling you to say emergency if you want to call an emergency number, or you can say cancel if not needed.
If you say Cancel or tap I’m OK across the screen, you can indicate whether you’ve had a minor accident or not.
By doing so, you can help Google improve its detection methods so that they are more accurate in the future.
If you call the emergency number, you see your exact location across the screen so you can let the emergency know where you are.
Should something happen, it is helpful to know that there are security measures in place within your Pixel phone to keep you safe.
It is worth noting that the leaks of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro phones have begun to appear as the launch date approaches. There were also leaks about the existence of a third model of this series. But so far there are no reliable details about its specifications and features.
