You will be able to control your phone with facial expressions with a new Accessibility beta feature0
Control your device with nothing but your face
A new way to control your device dubbed "Camera Switches" has now been introduced to the latest Android beta to the Accessibility Suite app. This app, basically, gives multiple options for accessibility settings to access and use your device, mainly created to help people with disabilities.
Now, the new "Camera Switches" option brings several ways you can control your Android phone, and the list of actions can grow in the future. Currently, you have the following face gestures that can be configured:
- Open Mouth
- Raise Eyebrows
- Look Left
- Look Right
- Look Up
- Pause Camera Switch,
- Toggle auto-scan (disabled)
- Reverse auto-scan
- Touch & hold
- Scroll forward
- Scroll backward
- Quick Settings
When this feature is active, a notification icon will be shown informing you your camera is actively being used. This status bar indicator may be redundant as Android 12 already shows you one when your device's camera is being used.
The cool thing is that the updated version of the Android Accessibility Suite app is not exclusive to just Android. It will be possible to download the app to Android 11 from the Google Play Store, however, it has not begun rolling out just yet.
