Google is developing a set of accessibility features for Android future versions which will let users to control their phones using facial expressions.

The new feature titled “Camera Switches” in the Android Accessibility Suite app will support setting gestures to specific controls. It will help users to interact with their Android device without using the touchscreen. For example, the app can detect when a user will open their mouth and map that to open the notifications panel, or users can raise their eyebrows to return to their home screen. Possible facial motions include smiling, opening the mouth, looking right, left or down.

This feature is currently in beta mode and is going to be more useful for users with disabilities. Also it will require the device’s camera to be switched on, and Android 12 enabled devices will show a status bar notifying the camera is being used.
