The Pixel 6 is the “Official Phone for NBA Fans”
Showcasing one of the most popular features of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, Google appealed to one of the greatest of all time. Who else would Google turn to to promote Magic Eraser than Magic Johnson? This feature, which is one of the many AI / ML-driven magic that Google has installed in the Pixel (mainly thanks to the Tensor chip developed in-house) allows the user to remove people and unwanted elements from photographs. .

To show how Magic Eraser works, the ad shows three female Miami Heat fans standing with a fan from another team posing in the background. But thanks to the Magic Eraser, the photobomber has been erased from photography.
Other fans are seen in the ad, including a Knicks fan uttering the team’s “Bing Bong” slogan and a Brooklyn Nets fan buying a Kevin Durant jersey is referred to as a bandwagon fan. That might be true given that the team has the best record in the Eastern Conference led by Durant’s game MVP.
Current rumor calls for Google to add Face Unlock to the Pixel 6 Pro via a future Pixel quarterly feature update
While it almost seems like there is a different issue with the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro every day, all of them can be fixed with a software update. And frankly, many Pixel buyers were familiar with the line’s history. Almost all full-sized Pixels suffered from a few bugs right after release, and Google was able to fix the ones they could while swapping out those with a sticky screen (seen on the Pixel 2 line) for a new unit.
The only complaint that we see popping up time and time again is the sluggishness of the optical fingerprint scanner in the display. Google has already sent a software update to improve the user experience, but for some there has been no improvement. It’s possible that Google has a huge late-night holiday giveaway for Pixel 6 Pro users that will make it easier for them to unlock their phones.
