Google Pixel’s Car Crash Detection
Google Pixel’s Car Crash Detection feature, which can automatically dial emergency services in the event of a car accident, is now available in India. The feature was previously available in the United States, Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom.
Car Crash Detection uses the Pixel phone’s motion sensors and microphone to detect a car accident. If the feature detects a crash, it will vibrate and sound an alarm at maximum volume. The user will then have the option to tell the Pixel that they need help, or to dismiss the alarm. If the user does not respond to the alarm within 10 seconds, the Pixel will automatically dial emergency services.
Car Crash Detection is available on the Pixel 4a and later devices, as well as the Pixel Fold. To enable the feature, go to Settings > Safety > Car crash detection.
