You can now apply Photos' Portrait Blur feature to more subjects other than human images, such as pets, food, and plants. The feature is available if you own one of Google's best Android phones, such as the Pixel 6, and have a Google One subscription.

The Pixel 6 is one of Google's most recent smartphones, featuring a unique design, an upgraded 50MP camera, and a powerful Tensor chip. You'll be among the first to try out new Android features with the Pixel 6, and Google will provide you with years of support.
