Unlike in the past when Google used to sell Nexus branded handsets, these days, Google’s Pixel devices tend to launch with features that are exclusive to the current handset. However, to Google’s credit, the company does eventually port some of those features over to its older devices.
If you’ve been finding that your Pixel smartphone has some memory management issues, where apps seem to be constantly closing themselves or restarting even after you’ve just launched them, then you might want to update your handset to the latest update that Google has recently announced.
The Google Assistant had a feature limited only to the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL when those handsets were launched. It could screen spam calls by answering a suspected spam call and transcribing the response in real time. This allowed the users to decide whether or not they wanted to answer that call. This feature is now being rolled out to the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.
Google still has a long way to go before its Pixel smartphones can hit figures that high-end smartphones from the likes of Samsung always do but it’s seeing good progress. Latest data from market tracker IDC reveals that the company shipped 3.9 million units of Pixel smartphones in 2017.

It’s a new product that was also launched today.
The day that many Google fans had been waiting for is finally here. The company today unveiled its Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL handsets. It’s actually the latter that has received the bulk of the design changes. The Pixel 2 looks more or less the same like its predecessor, the original Google Pixel. It even has the same 5 inch display.
There is a lot of hype surrounding Google’s new Pixel handsets now that all of their major rivals have already been announced. Google has confirmed when the new handsets will be unveiled but it hasn’t confirmed much more than that. The Pixel XL 2 has been spotted at the FCC where the filing has revealed the manufacturer that will be making this device for Google.
Google is due to launch its new Pixel handsets later this year so it’s not surprising to see that rumors about this handset are picking up the pace.
