The AI-powered Magic Eraser feature, which lets you easily remove unwanted objects from your photos, is no longer exclusive to the new Pixel smartphones and is coming to more devices. Magic Eraser was first introduced in 2021 with the release of the Pixel 6.
Starting today, Google is rolling out Magic Eraser to Pixel 5a and earlier models. The same applies to Google One. In the coming weeks, users on all plans will be able to access Magic Eraser through Google Photos, even if they’re using the iOS app. Unfortunately, editing features are not available in the web version of Google Photo.
All Pixel models and Google One subscribers will also get access to an HDR effect that can be applied to videos to boost brightness and contrast. This feature was already available for photos. At the very least, users of older Pixel devices and Google One subscribers will get access to more styles in the Google Photo collage editor starting today.
