Google Pixel Touch Sensitivity

Google's Pixel 8 series, released last year, includes an exclusive screen protector detector. This smart function detects when a screen protector is applied or removed from the Pixel 8 or Pixel 8 Pro device and prompts users to turn screen protector mode on or off accordingly. Google is preparing to launch a new adaptive Google Pixel Touch Sensitivity to Pixel handsets. This facility is expected to automatically alter screen touch sensitivity based on users' environmental circumstances and actions. A reference to the feature was supposedly discovered on Android 14 QPR3 Beta 1.

According to Android Police, code strings from the most recent Android 14 QPR3 Beta 1 release indicate the adaptive touch feature. According to the strings, the adaptive touch feature would automatically alter the handset's touch sensitivity based on the user's surroundings, activities, and screen protector.

 

The strings contain no references to external conditions or activities that would cause a change in touch sensitivity. However, the source speculates that Pixel's screen touch sensitivity may be automatically adjusted based on ambient factors such as rain or cold and sports like swimming. The mention of screen protectors could refer to the screen protector detection capability, already available on Pixel 8 devices.

As previously said, Google is currently delivering the screen protector detecting feature specifically for the Pixel 8 series. This feature recognises when users insert or remove a screen protector from their handset. Attaching a screen protector will send you a notification asking you to engage the screen protector mode to boost touch sensitivity.
