Step 1: Enable Google Assistant
Before you can use voice commands, make sure that Google Assistant is enabled on your phone. Here’s how to do it:
- Open the Google app on your Pixel 7.
- At the bottom right, tap ‘More’.
- Tap ‘Settings’, then ‘Google Assistant’.
- Under ‘Assistant devices’, choose your phone or tablet.
- Switch on ‘Google Assistant’.
If Google Assistant was already enabled, you can skip this step.
Step 2: Familiarize Yourself with Google Assistant
Now that you have Google Assistant enabled, it’s time to familiarize yourself with it. Google Assistant can understand a variety of commands, but for taking a selfie, you can use the following:
- “Take a selfie.”
- “Snap a selfie.”
- “Capture a selfie.”
Before proceeding, make sure your Pixel 7’s camera is in good working condition and the lens is clean for the best quality photos.
Step 3: Position Your Phone
Find a good spot to place your phone where it is stable, has a good view of the subjects, and is within hearing distance for Google Assistant. The phone’s stand, a tripod, or a flat surface would work. Make sure your Pixel 7’s front-facing camera is facing you or the subjects of the selfie.
Step 4: Use Voice Command
Now, all you have to do is wake up Google Assistant by saying “Ok Google” or “Hey Google”, followed by the command to take a selfie. For instance, you can say, “Ok Google, take a selfie.”
After you give this command, Google Assistant will open the camera app in selfie mode. A countdown of three seconds will start automatically, giving you a moment to pose.
Step 5: Check Your Photo
Once the photo is taken, you can check it in the Google Photos app. If you’re not happy with the result, you can always repeat the process until you get the perfect selfie.
- Make sure your phone’s volume is loud enough for you to hear the countdown.
- If you’re in a noisy environment, move to a quieter location so Google Assistant can hear your voice commands.
- Experiment with different lighting and angles for the best selfie results.
Now you know how to capture a selfie on your Google Pixel 7 using voice commands. It’s a hands-free, convenient, and fun way to capture those memorable moments. With the exceptional camera quality of the Pixel 7, you’re all set to capture stunning selfies with just your voice. Happy clicking!
