Now you can control smartphones using facial expressions

Android 12 introduces support for controlling the device using facial expressions.

Now it will be possible to perform operations using a wink or an open mouth.

This control method will allow the user to scroll the smartphone screen, cancel an action, start the camera or pause the playback of media content.

The user will be able to perform various functions by opening his mouth, smiling, raising his eyebrows, and moving his gaze to the left, right or up. Each of these expressions can be used to activate a feature, such as going to the home screen or launching a specific application.

In order to start using the new function, you need to individually adjust your smartphone to your facial expressions.

Mimic controls are already available in beta versions of Android 12 for branded Google Pixel smartphones. For the rest, it will work with the release of the OS, which will take place this fall.
