Now Google has added “AI Kissing Detection” to the Camera app in Pixel’s Photobooth mode. Basically, your smartphone now automatically takes selfies when you kiss someone.

So if you’re trying to capture a moment with your significant other, the Pixel Camera has never been easier.

Since people usually don’t look at their cameras when they kiss someone, and even their eyes may be closed, Google can’t train camera AI the way it would smiles or smiles. goofy faces. To do this, Google actually created another template for the camera app to detect when people kiss in the frame.

According to the Google Blog, in which the company explains how to use Photobooth as it does, the text of frame indicates the facial expression quality and kiss score.

Additionally, the AI ​​also emphasizes foreground expressions rather than the background. She clicks on the image when the AI ​​finds a good overall score for the image.

The Photobooth feature is now available in Pixel 3, so if you have a Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL, you can go ahead and click through all of those kissing images with your partner that were previously a lot more work.
