The Google Pixel 7 has a broader selfie camera and a better primary camera than the Pixel 6a. A faster Tensor G2 chip powers the phone series. With Tensor G2, the phone not just captures night light pictures quicker but also with details and better clarity. According to Google, the Pixel 7 series captures photos with accurate skin tones. It has brought us various new camera-focused features. One of those features is Guided Frame.
This feature uses the Pixel 7’s front-facing camera, along with Google’s TalkBack mode, to help your phone take selfies even if you can’t see the process. With TalkBack, there are a few different implementations that a selfie has. First, your phone will vibrate at other times to help you identify when the camera is framing your face correctly. You will be audibly guided by your Pixel to let you know where to move your head for the best shot.
For whom is the Guided Frame feature?
The feature is an interplay of hardware and software, and it works with Android’s TalkBack screen reader to help guide a visually-impaired person to get into the best positioning for a good selfie. It simplifies taking selfies for those individuals who are visually impaired.
How to enable the Guided Frame feature?
Step 1: On your Pixel, go to the settings.
Step 2: Scroll down and look for accessibility.
Step 3: Tap on “TalkBack.”
Step 4: Tap on “Use TalkBack” to turn it on.
Step 5: Tap on “TalkBack shortcut” to turn on the quick shortcut.
From there, hold your volume buttons down for 2 seconds. TalkBack should turn on and limit the touch capabilities of your phone. If you double-tap the power button, you should open the camera app.
You can choose the camera switch button when the camera is open and get guided photos. Your Pixel will audibly provide you with instructions to frame your face. On top of that, the phone will vibrate to let you know when the shot looks good. Once you’re ready, a 3-second countdown will start.
