Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL

Google Call Screen Feature Started Rolling Out for Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL Devices


The Call screen feature was one of the most appreciated features from Google. The Call Screen feature allows the Google Assistant to handle the received calls and manage the outgoing calls. The Google Assistant will answer all of the calls with this feature. As of now, this feature was available on the latest Google Pixel 3 series devices. Now, Google has started rolling out the same feature for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL devices. The rollout is begun just a few hours ago as per the reports from a few people. The deployment is underway in the United States of America as there are no other countries with reported updates.

The Call Screen, which was launched with the Pixel 3 series devices in an I/O conference by Google, allows the Google Assistant AI to make and answer the phone calls on behalf of users. The demo in the Google Conference was pretty impressive as the Assitant calls the Beauty Salon to book an appointment on the predefined time. In the keynote, Google promised that the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL would receive the same functionality by the November and denied to announce a fixed date. The same update is underway as the devices are receiving firmware update notification.

Not just the  Call Screen feature, but the Pixel devices users in the United States will soon receive the Duplex technology update very soon. The Duplex is the technology which allows the Google Assistant to book appointments on behalf of the users and also talk like a real human being. With the Duplex technology, the assistant can carry out casual conversation with a human being on the opposite side of the line. According to Google, the feature has started to roll out in the United States and will be available on all of the devices in the country within one or two weeks. Within the next few months, the same feature will be sent to all of the available devices in all other countries.
