Google has brought revolutionary software updates to Pixel smartphones. Night Sight for night photography, Astrophotography, Call Screening, Live Caption, Magic Eraser among others are some of the best features exclusively available for Pixel devices. Google’s latest Magic Eraser tool in Google Photos was an instant hit in the Android community. While Google has now made the Magic Eraser tools available all smartphones, even iPhones, it is behind a paid subscription plan called Google One. Samsung users don’t need to pay for using this Magic eraser. We already have Object Eraser. Here’s how it works.
