Last year Microsoft had initially announced the “eye contact” feature for the Surface laptop that is powered by ARM. Finally, after several months, the feature was rolled out for the Surface Pro X. the feature will be made available through the new Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 20175. The launch is not very far from a broad release. The new feature from Microsoft is heavily reliant on the Microsoft SQ1 processor’s artificial intelligence capabilities. Camera adjustments will be made by the processor during the video call or chat to ensure that the user always seems to make eye contact with the camera.

This feature will work even if the lens is not on or if the user is looking downwards. When the feature is enabled, it will work on any app that makes use of the front camera (like Google Meet, or Zoom). The eye contact feature will work only if the device is in the landscape mode. The feature is enabled through the ARM processor for the Surface X; this indicates that the feature will not be available for x86 Windows and regular computers. The primary reason for this is due to the fact that, for processing this feature, you will need much more power than regular machines.
