Google is likely advancing its Google Pixel phones to tackle touch sensitivity challenges faced in several scenarios. In the latest Android beta, the tech giant is bringing an automatic touch sensitivity feature, removing the need for manual adjustments.


It is worth noting that several Android devices provide specific settings such as “glove mode” or “screen protector mode” to enhance touch sensitivity. Typically, users need to activate these settings manually, which can be annoying at times. Google is trying to create an adaptive feature to sense the same.
