It seems that Google has quietly released an update that brings with it the Adaptive Sound feature for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro to adjust the audio quality of the smartphone depending on the surrounding.
This feature first arrived on Google’s best devices from 2020, namely the Pixel 5 and the Pixel 4a 5G as part of a late year feature drop in 2020. At the time of launch this feature was not present on the Pixel 6.
Twitter user Mishaal Rahman however seems to have found the feature on his Pixel 6. In case you missed it, this feature makes use of the microphones on your Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro to adjust the audio equalizer settings on the basis of the surroundings.
How Does Adaptive Sound Work on the Pixel 6 Series?
It works, as per Google by assessing the acoustics around you. Overall, it aims to provide better audio quality for Pixel users, which works quite well especially if there are audio issues.
What is worth noting though is that not all is great with this feature, with Adaptive Sound barely noticeable at loud volumes. If you wish to try it out, it is turned off by default, so you need to manually go to your phone’s settings and toggle it on under the Sound section of your Pixel handset. This seems to be a server related updated, so it may take time to show up.
What Else is Going on in Relation to the Device?
In other Google Pixel 6 news, a number of users complain that the on-screen fingerprint sensor slows down and fails. The joy of migrating the biometric sensor from the back to the screen gave way to disappointment
One of the users complained about the Google Pixel 6 fingerprint scanner on the company’s blog, saying that he was happy with the smartphone, but the malfunctions and speed of the sensor spoil the overall impression of the device. The company decided to respond to this speech and responded to it.
