What is the Magic Eraser?

Google Photos has a Magic Eraser feature that allows users to swiftly remove unwanted objects or stuff from their photographs. It’s far more user-friendly than any editing software and requires no deep understanding of photo editing.

Magic Eraser, which was formerly a Pixel-only feature, is an excellent instrument for erasing photobombers and unwanted elements from any shot, regardless of whether you’re using an Android or iOS device.

Although Google Photos is available on all mobile devices, if you don’t have a Pixel, you’ll need a Google One subscription to use the Magic Eraser.

Magic Eraser additionally includes a Camouflage tool for removing distracting elements from your images and focusing on the subject of the image.
