This feature is also a brand new setup of Google and it is also part of the first developer preview of Android 11. As the name suggests, it is a safety item, the feature uses location of the phone along with the accelerometer and microphone to try and detect when you meet with an accident and if the application is not able to detect the same, then the phone will make a loud noise and ask if there is any requirement of help, and if the phone will not get any response then it will automatically call to the emergency number and also share the location.
