    Google has released the much awaited Google Pixel 6a smartphone a few days ago and the phone has already left users impressed with its features. One of the most impressive features of the newly released Google Pixel 6a is Magic Eraser. It's a camera tool that allows you to remove unwanted objects from your pictures. It allows you to select the object you want to remove and press the Magic Eraser button and it's done. But note that this interesting camera tool is limited to newer Pixel smartphones only. Recently, Apple too has unveiled this feature on the upcoming software update iOS 16 wherein users will be able to crop unwanted objects from the background of the image. However, it's yet to be rolled out publicly. Apart from these phones, other android users are yet to get this feature. But there's a workaround that will let users access a similar feature. All they have to do is download a Google app called Snapseed. It is known as Healing and offers a similar tool as Magic Eraser. Here's how you can use it.
