New Google app released to help boost development of Pixel 4's radar tech
Google has released a new app called Soli Sandbox, which is designed to create new interactions based on the Pixel 4 radar technology.
The Soli Sandbox app is available on Google Play right now, and it’s designed to allow anyone to play with Soli prototypes created on the web. It will enable users to use touchless swipes, taps, and more while interacting with the new application.
Anyone looking to create their own Soli prototypes can head to the website to build one. Google has a guide that breaks down everything a developer needs to know to use it. From there, they can use the app on their phone to interact with the gestures they’ve created.
Even if creating your own prototypes for use in Soli Sandbox isn’t appealing, the app comes with a prototype pre-installed so you can mess around with the Soli technology. There’s a little introduction that lets you play with four different gestures to get a feel for what Soli is capable of doing.
The Soli Sandbox app only works with Pixel 4 devices, so other phones are left out of this one. If you have a Pixel 4 at the ready, you can download the app now and get a glimpse into the future of Google’s Soli radar technology. It’s available in the US, Canada, Singapore, Australia, Taiwan, and most European countries.
To be clear, this isn’t designed to create production apps; rather, it’s destined for testing.
