Pixel 4 April Update Adds ‘Require Eyes To Be Open’ Setting To Face Unlock, Bluetooth Fixes


With the first Monday of the month, Google has started rolling out a software update to its Pixel devices. From today itself, the tech giant has started sending out the April update to its Pixel devices. Like most of the times, Google will roll out this update for around two weeks until it reaches to all Pixel devices out there.

Once you get the latest April update, you will have the latest security patch installed on your device. In case, if you own a Pixel 4 and Pixel 4XL device, you will also get a new feature on Face Unlock that removes the security threat related to this device. 

Since the launch of the Pixel 4 series, there was a flaw in the Face Unlock mechanism that even unlocks the phone even if your eyes are closed. Since then, Google promised to fix this flaw in the Pixel 4 series. And finally, the tech giant added this feature as an optional toggle. You can enable an option called “require eyes to be open” in the setting to force the software to check whether your eyes are opened while face recognization or not.

In addition to this, this new update includes fixes for dropped Bluetooth audio input while on a call, and also seemingly addresses lag when calling up the keyboard in some apps.  Last but not the least, there’s a fix for a memory leak that can prevent additional Bluetooth Low Energy connections.
