One of the very interesting feature inside the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro is the Magic Eraser. A feature that allows you to clean or erase any object from the background of your photo after taking the picture.
Up on till now, the Magic Eraser feature was exclusive to just the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. Well, that is about to change thanks to some talented group of developers.
If your smartphone runs Android 12, well you can also enjoy using this Magic Eraser feature. Using a special Google Photos APK, you can try out the Eraser feature in your Android 12 Smartphone. And it appears you don’t need to have Tensor chip inside your device before it works.
The guys over at Android Police has confirmed that you can install Magic Eraser on your Other Pixel phone. All you have to do is simply sideload the latest version of the Google Photos app from the Pixel 6 smartphone.
And if you own other smartphones, then you might need to have the latest Android 12 installed before it’ll work. Currently, other smartphones are running the beta version of the Android 12 which means you’ll have to wait a little longer.
But, the process to get the Magic Eraser feature in your smartphone is pretty easy especially for those with Pixel smartphones. Just follow the simple steps below.
How to Get Pixel 6 Magic Eraser Working On Your Smartphone
- First, you just need to download Split APKs Installer (SAI) from the Google Play Store.
- Then download the Google Photos APK file. Note that simply downloading it from APK Mirror won’t work. It needs to be a specific version overtook from Pixel 6 (so use the links on this page).
- Now, open SAI, tap “Install APKs” and select “System File Picker.” You’ll need to grant it permission to access your files on your device.
- You will need to find and select the Google Photos .apks file you’ve just downloaded.
- Hit “Install” and allow SAI to install unknown apps. A pop-up will take you to the right settings screen.
- Click “Update” in the system install prompt.
- Open Google Photos and enjoy Magic Eraser! The feature becomes available on the Edit Button. It’s inside the Tools section.
Since this feature is made exclusively for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, we don’t know how long this bypass procedure would last. So, you might want to try using the Magic Eraser feature as soon possible. It’s possible for Google to simply remove compatibility in a future update.
