- Google has announced that Real Tone filters are now available on Google Photos.
- These filters are made with more diverse skin tones in mind.
One of the Pixel 6 line‘s standout features was its focus on accurately capturing more diverse skin tones. Google announced at I/O 2022 that it would maintain this focus with so-called Real Tone filters in Google Photos, and we didn’t have to wait long to see them.
The Android Twitter account announced that Real Tone filters are indeed being pushed out now on Google Photos for Android. However, Android Central reports that the new filters are also available via iOS and the web. These new filters are evaluated on the so-called Monk scale, which is a 10 shade scale for skin tones, and means they should work better with more diverse skin tones (particularly darker skins).
