Although the Pixels are not very popular in Spain, the Google mobile brand sometimes surprises with some innovations that we like a lot. The detection of accidents is one of the characteristics that are currently expanding, and that with situations like the ones we are going to tell about today are worth insisting on it.
If you don’t remember, Accident Detection is a feature that is part of Google’s personal safety app. This function is capable of detecting when we have had a traffic accident through the information captured by the phone’s sensors, being able to act for us when calling emergency services, offering our location data.
The function of the Google Pixel capable of saving lives
The protagonist of our story has told on Reddit an experience of how his Pixel 4 XL could have saved his life. Without remembering how, the vehicle he was driving fell by accident into a ravine. When he woke up, he did not know where he was, and while he was shouting for help, he heard a voice in his headphones from the emergency services, which told him that they were on their way and had already notified his wife.
While he was unconscious, the mobile automatically detected what had happened. When there was no response from the affected person, the phone contacted the emergency services on its own for help, which allowed them to rescue that person in a matter of minutes.
Although we already knew what this function does, real stories that show us how it is really capable of saving lives show us that these types of characteristics should not be part of any exclusive, but can be implemented by any manufacturer under a common standard .
