Google has recently pushed out its December 2021 update for the Google Pixel 6 range of smartphones, and in it are some exclusive accessibility improvements. These include support for people that have difficulty hearing conversations in loud places and some extra language support in its other features.

  • Conversation Mode in Sound Amplifier: through the Sound Amplifier app, users can boost the volume and clarity of sounds that the device picks up when using headphones.
