For example, the Pixel 3, Pixel 4, Pixel 5, and Pixel 6 series of smartphones have a helpful feature, “car accident recognition,” to save lives. The feature is already available in the US and other countries like Taiwan and Italy for Pixel 3 and later devices. Its entry in Africa has not yet been confirmed.
How to enable this feature

- Select Settings from the menu
- Tap Car crash detection under “Detection & notifications.”
- Activate the Car Crash Detection feature and Allow every time you’re prompted to reveal your location and share your Microphone
Once enabled in the phone’s Safety menu, this feature will be able to detect if you’ve been in an accident. Whether you don’t respond, your Pixel will inquire if you’re hurt, and if you don’t, it will be able to share your location with emergency personnel. Of course, this capability is contingent on your ability to connect to a mobile network in the event of an accident.
