Google Pixel June feature drop offers Lock Folder and new Pride wallpapers

The feature drop also offers astrophotography video time-lapses

Pixel devices are getting several new features that will roll out over the next few weeks.

The June feature drop offers a whole bunch of new additions to Pixel handsets, including Astrophotography time-lapses, Locked Folders for Google Photos and more.

First announced at I/O 2021, Lock Folder is a password-protected feature that prevents pictures from appearing when you scroll through the main Google Photos feed.

The Google Camera app also now features a new button in the top-right corner that lets users select between the default photo gallery or the Locked Folder. This means you can take a picture and have it go directly to the Lock Folder.

Also in the Camera app, Astrophography now offers Night Sight timelapse video recording. This feature is only available on the Pixel 4 or newer.

Further, there are three new Pride wallpapers made by Black non-binary artist Ashton Attzs. Pride-themed ringtones and notification sounds from LGBTQ+ artists and YouTube Creators are also in the update.

Additionally, after you copy text, Gboard will surface snippets including phone numbers, email addresses and URLs. Google Assistant can also now pick up or decline calls.

The June feature drop will launch over the next two weeks. Google’s June security update is also now available.
