What Is Google Motion Sense And Will It Work In Australia?

We’re just over two weeks away from the launch of the extremely leaked Google Pixel 4.

One of the apps that has been pegged for the new device is Google Motion Sense. This is what it actually is and the Australian details.

” excerpt=”We’re still a few months out from when Google will most likely unveil the Google Pixel 4. The leaks and rumours have already begun, with Google even releasing its own image ina baller power move earlier this year. But there have been some updates since then, including some pretty massive spec leaks. Here’s everything we know so far.”]

Motion Sense is basically a way to control your phone without touching in. Using gesture controls, users will be able to simply wave their hand in order to do things like put phone calls on silent, snooze their pesky alarms and control music.

Fortunately for us Aussies, it seems like Motion Sense will be available here.

According to 9to5Google U.S. retailer Best Buy accidentally posted a country list on its website earlier this year, and this included Australia.

More recently, XDA Developers released an updated version of the list, where Australia was once again featured.

The site also provided a breakdown of the music apps that gestures will apparently work with:

  • Amazon Music
  • Anghami
  • Apple Music
  • TIDAL Music
  • Wynk Music
  • iHeartRadio
  • MyMusic
  • Gaana Music
  • YouTube Music
  • Google Play Music
  • Hungama Music
  • JioSaavn
  • 지니 뮤직 (Genie Music)
  • 벅스 (Bugs Music)
  • Pandora
  • Napster Music
  • Shazam
  • SiriusXM
  • Spotify
  • Spotify Stations
  • Deezer Music Player
  • AWA

These apps will reportedly allow you to skip to the next track by waving your hand to the left or right. You’ll also apparently be able to silence the device by waving your hand over it.

We’ll know more once the Pixel 4 drops on October 16. Our biggest question – will it only be available for Google Pixels?
