Google Rolls out a New Update to Bring the Adaptive Sound Feature to Pixel 6 Duo

Pixel 6

As per a recent tweet from @MishaalRahman, Google is silently but surely planning to send updates for the latest Pixel 6 and 6 Pro devices. The update majorly focuses on bringing the adaptive sound feature, which is already available on some of the older Pixel smartphones.

In case you’re a bit confused about this new sound thing, the primary aim of the feature is to simply improve the quality. The Adaptive sound uses technology that allows your device to dramatically adjust the sound according to what your surrounding is. It usually uses the microphone to access the acoustics near you, changes the same, and amplifies the best out of it.

Talking about the update, there is no official word yet. However, you might have to wait a bit before loading your device with this new feature.

OnePlus 8

After releasing the beta update for the OnePlus 9 series, the company has finally started recruiting Android 12 testers for OnePlus 8, One Plus 8T, and One Plus 8 Pro devices. But before you wish to get yourself into it, there are a few things to keep in mind.

  • First of all, the participants will have to sign an NDA.
  • Secondly, it requires a clean flash, which means getting the update will erase all your data.

In case you're still interested, here is the list of eligibility requirements:

  • You must own a OnePlus 8 series device or a OnePlus 8T device.
  • You must be an active member of the OnePlus Community.
  • You're open and willing to regularly communicate and provide all sorts of feedback to the OnePlus team on the official Telegram channel.
  • After updating to the closed beta version, you need to be patient and tolerant, as the stable version might take some time to appear. Also, you need to accept the instability and all risks which might be coming along.

Are you all okay with the requirements? In that case, head over and apply here. Make sure to do it quickly as there are only 200 slots to fill for the OnePlus 8T users and around 200 slots between the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro owners.
