Google released Call Screen with the new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL devices, but the company promised that the feature would make its way to the older models. Last month it came to the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, and now it’s the OG’s turn.
Owners of the original Pixel and Pixel XL are now starting to see the Call Screen feature appear on their devices. This feature allows Google Assistant to take over a call (if that’s something that you want), asking what the call is about and taking a message from the caller all while providing a real-time transcript of the screened call. It’s a pretty amazing feature and it’s fantastic to see Google pushing for older devices to get new goodies.
Make sure the Google Phone app is fully updated and check in Settings > Call Screen to see if you have the feature! If you’re using Call Screen for the first time, feel free to let us know what you think of the new feature in the comments.
