After the Nothing Phone (1) was the first to get Google’s Personal Safety feature, Google has announced that it will open up the feature to more Android models such as SONY Xperia, vivo and its sub-brand iQOO via an Android 13 update.
Google Personal Safety, previously exclusive to Pixel phones, is an emergency rescue app launched by Google in 2021 with features such as car crash detection, location search in case of an emergency, and crisis alerts.
Users can add/edit important medical information, assign emergency contacts, get alerts of nearby crises, and on some devices even ask for help when a car accident is detected.
While Android 13 / OneUI 5.0 has been rolled out to a number of Samsung Galaxy phones, none of Samsung’s phones are currently equipped with Google’s Personal Safety feature. The non-Pixel models that are currently getting this feature include:
Nothing Phone (1)
Sony Xperia 5 IV
Sony Xperia 1 IV
iQOO 8 Pro
iQOO 9 SE
iQOO 9 Pro
vivo X80 Pro
vivo X90 Pro
