Google has unveiled a unique feature in its Pixel 8 Pro through a January update, transforming the smartphone into a handy thermometer. Since its launch in 2023, the Pixel 8 Pro featured a physical thermometer within its camera band at the back.

Initially featuring a physical thermometer for reading object temperatures, the new update expands its functionality to measure body temperature. 

Described as “medical-grade,” users can access this feature through the Thermometer app on the Pixel 8 Pro, allowing them to scan their foreheads for temperature readings. Notably, the phone doesn’t need direct contact with the forehead; the infrared sensors and camera’s LDAF can accurately detect proximity to initiate the reading.

The integration with Fitbit enables users to save temperature readings directly to their Fitbit profiles, offering a seamless way to monitor health metrics. 

While the body temperature tool is an exciting addition, it might not be available in all markets, especially where medical approvals are managed by different entities.

However, other anticipated features like “circle to search,” “magic compose,” and “photomoji” is expected to receive a broader release through a regular over-the-air update on January 31.
