Google’s latest Pixel features include a ‘safety check’

Published on 06/03/2020 @ 5 AM EST
The Personal Safety app on Pixel 4 will now be available on all Pixel devices, and car crash detection is also coming to Pixel 3. (Car crash detection is not available in all languages or countries. As announced on the update, "We’re introducing new safety features, too, like safety check, which schedules a check-in from the app at a later time. For example, if you’re about to go on a run or hike alone, safety check will make sure you made it back safely. If you don’t respond to the scheduled check-in, the app will alert your emergency contacts. In the event that you need immediate help or are in a dangerous situation, emergency sharing notifies all of your emergency contacts and shares your real-time location through Google Maps so they can send help or find you."
