In fact, here’s a list of 10 things the Pixel 3 can do so you can enjoy your phone to the fullest.
At first glance, the Pixel 3 XL looks just like the Pixel before it except it has a big notch in the screen. That said, Google packed in some impressive new features and capabilities to make them almost Pixel perfect.
The moment you get you new Pixel you’ll want to take advantage of every aspect or feature. Some of our tips are easy to find and well-known to Android users. That said, there are several new tricks you might not know about, but should.
During the announcement, Google talked a lot about the Assistant, AI, and machine learning which all allow the software and camera do to some amazing things. This year the screen is bigger, better, and the phone is water-resistant. However, we all knew that already.
Everyone knows the Google Assistant is helpful, the camera is pretty good, and it has a fast fingerprint scanner on the back. That’s nice, but we’re here to talk about the other exciting hidden features you might not know exist.
Some of these include super-fast wireless charging, instant song recognition even with the screen off, squeezing the phone to open apps, and Google Duplex. There’s even a new feature known as ‘Call Screen” that will answer calls for you, transcribe the conversation, and let you choose to join the call, hang up, or send it to and report as spam. These phones are smart.
Yes, Google’s Pixel 3 and 3 XL have some excellent features. Those are just a few of the many you’ll want to take full advantage of by checking out the slideshow below.
Call Screen & Google Duplex
One of our favorite new features of the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL is Call Screen and everything that comes with Duplex.
Earlier this year Google announced Duplex, putting the power of AI and machine learning into the Assistant like never before. Literally giving people their own personal Google Assistant. You probably saw a video of Duplex making phone calls and dinner reservations for people, and it's so believable it's scary. And while Duplex is still coming out later this year, another part of Duplex known as Call Screen is the feature you'll enjoy the moment you get your phone.
Just watch the video above TO THE END. Basically, Call Screen will answer phone calls for you, transcribe conversation, and let you choose to join the call, hang up, or send it to spam and report the number. Amazing.
Even if you do know the number calling, this is a great way to decide if an incoming call and conversation is important enough to answer while you’re busy at work.
