Gone are the days when we used to have a huge forehead and chin on a smartphone. Modern-day smartphones are sleek, sport a borderless design, have an almost edge-to-edge display. All these design features led the selfie cameras to be contained in a hole-punch.
There are different ways of containing the selfie camera on a smartphone, like water-drop notch, U-shape notch, V-shape notch, etc. However, the most common display design, which most premium flagships are going ahead with, is the hole-punch.
Google recently launched its Pixel 6 series devices, which also come with a hole-punch camera in the front.
“Energy Ring” is an app available for free on the Google Play Store, that is meant for devices with hole-punch cameras. It provides a fun way to see the battery levels of your phone by wrapping the hole punch with a colored circle.
According to 9to5Google, the latest update for the Energy Ring app has introduced official support for the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro smartphones. Yes! Now, you can wrap your favorite color around the hole punch of your Pixel 6 series phone and add one more customization element.
Energy Ring’s previous update added support for Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Pixel 5a
The Energy Ring application is ad-supported. So, you will encounter multiple ads while using the app, but that is okay since it is available to install for free.
Moreover, if you are a person who loves customizing your Android device, you would want to have the Energy Ring app in your arsenal. It definitely adds a nice touch to the plain hole-punch resting in your display.
The battery ring for the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro provided by Energy Ring will show you the remaining battery percentage in real-time. It will even change the color around the hole punch when the battery level drops.
Opening the app will allow you to tweak a few settings. Notably, you can change the ring thickness, select the ring background, and choose the position of the ring origin. Also, there is an option to select whether or not to show Energy Ring on the lock screen.
You can even change the color configuration. Further, you can also change the ring direction and choose between clockwise, anticlockwise, or bidirectional.
After you download the app, it will ask for accessibility permissions which you need to grant. Now, turn off the native battery indicator by going to Settings > Battery > Percentage.
