Google says a fix is ​​coming for update that wiped out key Pixel 6 feature

As reported by some users, the update to Google Photos removed a great feature of the Pixel 6: the magic eraser tool, which lets you remove unwanted objects or people from your photos. If your Pixel downloaded the affected version (5.67 according to Android Central), fear not: Google says it's working on a fix.

While the version of Photos with Magic Eraser is no longer available in the Play Store, its appearance on APK Mirror confirms that it was at one point (though we wouldn't recommend downloading it). According to one user, the broken version displayed a tip about the object removal feature, despite it being no longer available in the app.

Google spokesman Alex Moriconi told The Verge that the company has "identified an issue in the rollout of [its] latest photo update and is fixing it soon." Google also says that the problem didn't affect everyone, which reflects our experience - two Verge employees on Pixel 6s said they didn't have any Google Photos updates available and were still able to use the Magic Eraser Huh. are capable. were capable.

While it doesn't look like the update is rolling out right now, it's understandable that users who got it would be shocked to find the Magic Eraser missing — it was one of Google's main selling points when it was released for almost a month. Till was rolled out. The first phone was launched by the time it was launched. Plus, the vanishing feature being designed to delete things adds dramatic irony, as Android Central's "Google magically erases Magic Eraser" title jokes. Given the relatively small number of posts about the problem, hopefully this won't affect you too much. If it does, keep your eyes peeled for updates to Google Photos; Help is apparently on the way.
