Google has rolled out a new feature into its personal safety app available on the latest Pixel Android devices named video recording. Alongside this, the app also included many other features such as safety check-in to allow sending notifications regarding your emergency to your contacts automatically if you don’t respond within a stipulated time.
It also has the facility to call 911 whenever you have been injured in a car accident. The news was shared by the tech tipsters XDA-Developers and Android Police. Once you activate the built-in emergency SOS you can simply use this feature.
Although, to make this works you need to hit the Android phone’s power button five times. The feature allows the users to record up to 45 minutes of the video once enabled.
However, make sure you have enough storage capacity to run the function. The video will then be instantly stored in your Google Account where it will be kept for at least seven days.
If you wish to share the video file with friends and relatives you can simply do so with the help of this feature. The feature also allows us to minimize the viewfinder and notification icon available on the phone while recording takes place.
