- Google Pixel Watch 2 watch faces
- Google Pixel 8 gets Adobe RAW support
- Android Auto fix
Google Pixel Watch 2 watch faces:
The original Google Pixel Watch, running Wear OS 4 update, is getting 6 new watch faces, initially created for Google’s 2023 Galaxy Watch 2 smartwatch. Google recently released a new update on November 6 for the watches, the rollout is still in progress.
According to 9to5google, Adventure, Analog Arcs, Analog Bold, Large Scale, Digital Bold, and Rotation watch faces are now live for the original Google Pixel Watch.
Google Pixel 8 gets Adobe RAW support:
The Pixel 8 and 8 Pro are now getting Adobe RAW support. That support is added for the front-facing camera, wide-angle lens, and main sensor on the Pixel 8 device. On the Pixel 8 Pro, RAW support is also available with the telephoto lens.
With the RAW support for the Pixel 8 series, Lightroom and Photoshop will recognize RAW files from that device, which comes in as a DNG file on the Pixel 8 and 8 Pro.
Android Auto fix:
According to several reports from users, the Google One VPN was breaking Android Auto in its wireless mode, which requires a Wi-Fi connection between the phone and the car. Some users reported that the issue started after updating Android Auto to a newer version and that rolling back to an older version restored the functionality.
However, Google has recently fixed the issue by updating the Google One app, which now lets users add Android Auto to the VPN. This means that users can now use Android Auto wirelessly without disabling the VPN service, as long as they have the latest version of the Google One app installed on their phones.
Google started releasing the fix on October 26, so most users should not encounter the problem anymore. If you are also facing this issue then install the latest version of the Google One app.
