Pixel 4 Motion Sense Demo Shows All The Gestures

Another one of the more interesting features that were unearthed in the leaks that run-up to the Pixel 4 launch is what Google calls Motion Sense. As the name suggests, users can use hand gestures near their Pixel 4 to perform basic tasks such as silencing a phonecall and skipping tracks. It works on Google’s Project Soli will be limited only to regions where Google can obtain the requisite permissions for operating radar-based technology.

Thanks to yet another leak (via 9to5google), we can get a glimpse at what Motion Sense can do in the real world.

In one of the videos, we can see the user swiping right on YouTube Music to switch between tracks. There will be more gestures for controlling the volume and the likes, and a swipe right is about as basic as it gets for skipping tracks.

In another video, we can see an alarm being dismissed by a wave of the hand. A few days ago, XDA Developers did some digging and found a list of music apps that Motion Sense will work with, here’s the full list.

Amazon Music, Anghami, Apple Music, AWA, 벅스 (Bugs Music), Deezer, Gaana Music, 지니 뮤직 (Genie Music), Google Play Music, Hungama Music, iHeartRadio, JioSaavn, KKBOX, MyMusic, Napster Music, Pandora, Shazam, SiriusXM, Spotify, Spotify Stations, TIDAL Music, Wynk Music, YouTube Music

It appears that Google wants to bake in Motion Sense into Pixel users’ basic routines, so the gestures are relatively simple. If the prospect of waving at your phone is too outlandish, you can switch it off anytime in the settings.
