With each batch of phones, brands try to differentiate them by adding new features. Whether hardware or design; without forgetting the software, there is always some new app, or exclusive feature, that aims to make a difference.

We are currently analyzing the Google Pixel 6, the famous magic eraser was one of the options we tried first. It is a tool included in the app Google Photos that It appears only in a specific version, the one for the aforementioned Pixel 6. And the funny thing is that Google has not blocked the draft to that device model: if the APK is installed, and you have a Pixel, the tool appears the same.

For the test we have extracted the APK of our Google Pixel 6 and we have installed it in a Pixel 4a. The specific version is 5.64, it is not patched and can be downloaded from APK Mirror. We have used our own APK, but it is possible to add the magic draft with the aforementioned APK Mirror file. Yes indeed, as long as the mobile is a Pixel: the Google Photos tool does not appear on other phones.
