Google Pixel Car Crash Detection Feature Comes to India: All You Need to Know

In some great news for Google Pixel users in India and some other countries, the company has rolled out its crash detection feature. Google had rolled out the Car Crash Detection feature to Pixel smartphones way back in 2019. After the recent expansion of the feature, Pixel users will be able to see it in the Safety app on Pixel 3 and later versions. The feature was not recognized much until Apple launched it in the iPhone 14 series. The Google Support page states that the Pixel 4A and subsequent smartphones will support the auto crash detection feature. Eleven languages, including English, Spanish, French, Mandarin, and twenty different regions, are supported by this emergency alert feature.

However, Google's Car Crash Detection feature was limited to only a few regions. Google has added five more regions, including India, to its Pixel smartphone lineup that supports its auto crash detection feature. Know what is the Google Pixel Crash Detection feature about and the list of newly added countries.

What is a Car Crash Detection feature?
The built-in sensors are used by the Pixel's Car Crash Detection features to determine when a user has been involved in a car accident. This feature examines the circumstances surrounding the car crash using location data, motion sensors, and microphones. It then waits for the user to react for 60 seconds before sending an automatic message to emergency services if they don't. This feature has the potential to save many lives and be very helpful.

One of the most important features in an emergency is this one, but it has limitations on both location and language. According to the most recent update, it will be accessible in a number of nations.

How to enable car crash detection on Pixel smartphones:
First off, Google doesn't activate the feature by default, so you may need to enable it on your Android phone. To accomplish this, take the following actions:
  • Navigate to the Settings on your Android device.
  • Tap Safety and Emergency after swiping down to find it.
  • Find the feature called "car crash detection" and turn it on.
  • You can now receive car crash alerts on your phone.
When you activate this feature, it will be able to identify potential traffic accidents and notify emergency services so they can come help you when needed. In addition to vibrating and sounding an alarm at maximum volume, the phone will even ask the user if they need assistance. It will then share your location and information about the vehicle collision with emergency services by calling 112.
