The new Tensor chipset powering Google’s Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro models brings a number of smart features to these phones, but perhaps the most impressive is Photo Unblur. With just a touch of a button, you can turn a blurry shot into one you’d love to share with others.
The best part is that the Photo Unblur tool doesn’t only work on images taken with the Pixel 7 cameras. Any photo stored in your Google Photos app is fair game for Photo Unblur, even if you took it entirely on another device — like an iPhone.
The feature is limited to Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro; not even Tensor equipped Pixel 6 models can access Photo Unblur. And that limited availability is part of what makes Photo Unblur so impressive — if you know how to use it to fix your photos.
Luckily, using the Pixel 7’s Photo Unblur feature is as easy as the many other photo editing tools in Google Photos. Here are all the steps to edit your photos with Photo Unblur on a Pixel 7.
How to use Photo Unblur on Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro
1. In the Photos app on your Pixel 7 Find the photo you want to fix with photo unblur. Tap the Edit button at the bottom of the screen.
2. If the Pixel’s AI capabilities detect that the photo is blurry, a photo blur option will appear in the suggested tools menu just below the image. Select Blur.
If Photo Unblur doesn’t appear as a recommended tool, Use the scroll menu to select Extras. An Unblur option will be there, right next to photo editing features like Magic Eraser.
3. Once you select Unblur, Tensor will take over and make adjustments to the image. When the result appears move the slider below to manually adjust the unblur effect.
4. If you are satisfied with the result, tap Done.
5. On the following screen Tap Save a copy to add the blurred photo to your library (the original is also preserved). Alternative, Tap Cancel to cancel the edit.
And that’s all you need to start using Photo Unblur, one of the best Tensor-based features on the Pixel 7.
