Google has included a smart built-in tool for photo editing known as the “Magic Eraser” in the $599 Google Pixel 6 and $899 Google Pixel 6 Pro and both are powered by Google Tensor chip, the first in-house chip made by Google.

For Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro devices, this option is available directly in the Google Photos app. Right now, you’re probably wondering what this “Magic Eraser” is and how it works with the Google Pixel 6 Series.

At Google’s launch event last year, the company unveiled the new “Magic Eraser” photo-editing feature alongside the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. With the “Magic Eraser” tool, you may eliminate unwanted objects or persons from both new and old images without affecting the background by using a blur effect.

According to a Google blog post, the feature detects distractions in your photos, offers suggestions for what can be deleted, and lets you select to remove them all at once or one at a time with a single tap. After that, machine learning guesses how the pixels will look after you delete the item.

If you’re trying to get that ideal Instagram shot, the rest of the world might not realize you’re shooting a photo and end up in the background unintentionally. The Magic Eraser function removes the embarrassment of asking someone to move out of frame while also allowing you more control over what appears in your photos.

The Pixel 6 series received improved camera hardware and features such as Real Tone and Motion mode, in addition to Magic Eraser. A Pixel Pass bundle deal, Android 12 OS, and the in-house Google Tensor processor were also introduced by the tech giant last year.

For the time being, Magic Eraser is only accessible on the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, but here’s how you get it.

  1. Open the Google Photos app
  2. Choose the photo you want
  3. Tap Edit in the bottom toolbar
  4. Tap Magic Eraser. The tool will detect and outline potential distractions in white
  5. If you agree with the suggestions, tap Erase All or tap each item to remove them individually

If Magic Eraser didn’t choose what you want to remove, you can manually circle something in the photo to erase it.
