Here's everything new in Android 7.1

Derek Walter | Oct. 6, 2016
Android phones will eventually get these new features (if they get updated) but some are Pixel exclusives.

Quick switch adapter: A wired setup to transfer contacts, photos, and messages (even from iMessage!) from your current phone to a Pixel.

Aesthetic changes: A new calendar and date icon, pull-out “pill” to launch a Google search, and new wallpapers. Maybe some new lock screen animation, too.

Camera features: The following is a list of software enhancements to the Pixel camera:

  • Electronic Image Stabilization (“video stabilization”) 2.0 
  • White Balance Presets
  • Exposure Compensation
  • AE/AF Locking
  • Viewfinder grid modes
  • Hardware accelerated (on Qualcomm Hexagon coprocessor) HDR+ image processing
  • Smartburst
  • Sensor Hub processor with tightly integrated sensors (accel, gyro, mag) + connectivity (Wi-Fi, Cell, GPS)
