June’s Pixel Feature Drop brings Starry Night clips, new wallpapers, and more


Pixel Feature Drop

It’s that time again where Google adds a bunch of new features to its Pixel handsets and this time the Feature Drop brings the ability to take Starry Night video clips, Pride-themed wallpapers, the Locked Folder option in Google Photos, as well as expanding crash detection to Pixel users in Spain, Ireland, and Singapore.

Pixels have been lauded for their astral photography chops and now with the June Pixel Feature drop the ability to take Starry Night video clips is being added, allowing you to create videos of the stars moving across the sky at the same time as you are taking the still image. Once you’ve taken a photo in Night Sight both the image and the video will be saved in your camera roll. This is available on the Pixel 4 and newer.

With Pride events kicking off across the world during the month of June, Google has included a number of Pride-themed wallpapers, ringtones, and notifications in this latest Pixel Feature Drop.

The Locked Folder feature in Google Photos is also rolling out, giving Pixel users added privacy when it comes to making sure that certain photos and videos don’t show up in shared albums or memories, ensuring that no one gets to see those pics of you dressed like a chicken at that party.

Finally, having already been available in the US, Australia, and the UK, Car Crash Detection is now rolling out to Pixels in Spain, Ireland, and Singapore via the Personal Safety app.
