This feature uses the Pixel 7’s front-facing camera along with Google’s TalkBack mode, to help your phone to take selfies even if you can’t necessarily see the process clearly. With TalkBack, there are a few extra implementations that a selfie has. First of all, your phone will vibrate at different times to help you in identifying when the camera is actually framing your face properly. Along with that, you will be audibly guided by your pixel to let you know where to move your head for the best shot.

For whom is the Guided Frame feature?

The feature is an interplay of hardware and software, and it works with Android’s TalkBack screen reader to help in guiding a visually-impaired person to get into the best positioning for a good selfie. It really simplifies taking selfies for those individuals who are visually impaired.

How to enable the Guided Frame feature?

Step 1: On your pixel, go to the settings.
