The Magic Eraser feature introduced by Google with the Pixel 6 lets you remove subjects from the background in your photos, and a video that has surfaced on X (formerly Twitter) shows Google has developed a version of Magic Eraser for audio, aptly called Audio Magic Eraser.
The short clip suggests Audio Magic Eraser will debut with the Pixel 8 series, and like the Magic Eraser, it will be accessible through the Google Photos app, allowing you to remove the background noise from the video.
The editor will have a slider to let you choose how much background sound you want to filter out. It will identify at least three types of sounds – “Noise,” “People,” and “Music.”
The video also shows the Google Pixel 8 Pro in a new blue color. You can watch the clip below to see Audio Magic Eraser in action.
The Magic Eraser was initially only available for select Pixel smartphones, but a few months ago, Google made it available for all Pixel users. It’s also available for non-Pixel and iOS users now through the Google Photos app, provided they have a Google One subscription. The Audio Magic Eraser will be seemingly exclusive to the Pixel 8 series, and whether or not it will come to other Pixel and non-Pixel devices remains to be seen.
