Pixel 4 Motion Sense tipped to work with these 9 media apps at launch

“Google Motion Sense was expected to work with signals that most music apps can detect, but the Motion Sense app lists only nine applications as supported”

Google Pixel 4 series is scheduled to launch on October 15th and thanks to a series of leaks in the last few weeks, we already know quite a bit the flagships. One such feature is the new ‘Motion Sense’ that is powered by the project Soli. This is said to allow users to control things like music and more without touching the phone through air gestures over the screen. Now, the list of media apps that support Motion Sense on the Pixel 4 series is discovered. The feature was initially expected to work with “Next Track” or “Previous Track” signals that most music apps can detect, but in the Motion Sense app a total of nine applications are only marked as “Supported.”

Amazon Music, Deezer, Google Play Music, iHeartRadio, Pandora, Spotify, Spotify Stations, YouTube Music, and YouTube are the list of apps that support Motion Sense. However, surprisingly, Apple Music seems to be missing. The app recently gained dark mode and Chromecast support. Folks at 9to5Google dug into these nine apps, but haven’t found any integration with the Pixel 4’s Motion Sense capabilities yet. This means the support could be added via an update in the next few weeks. There’s also a possibility that Motion Sense could be compatible with more apps, but only these are being discovered for now.

Google Pixel 4 duo is expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 855 SoC coupled with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. Both the phones should run on Android 10 out of the box. The Pixel 4 series is confirmed to feature Face Unlock, and the face data will be stored on the phone. Google could also introduce a Pixel 4 XL 5G variant as the handset has appeared on Geekbench recently. The flagship series will be available in Black, White and Coral colour options.
