Pixel 4 Raise to Talk to Assistant feature to have limited availability at launch

Pixel 4 Raise to Talk to Assistant feature to have limited availability at launch

In the wake of Microsoft's surprise Android phone announcement, Google will be launching its take on what an Android smartphone should be. Almost everything about the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL has been leaked already but those mostly focused on the hardware side of things. Software features are now starting to also come to light and one of the headlining features will unsurprisingly be Google Assistant. Coming along with "The New Assistant" is a new gesture that will make it more natural to call on the Assistant. Also unsurprisingly, it will not be available for all Pixel 4 owners on day one.

Pixel 4 AT&T availability tipped ahead of reveal

Once upon a time, your options were pretty limited when it came to obtaining a Pixel phone. The line originally started as a Verizon carrier exclusive (though it's always been available through the Google Store as well), but with the launch of the Pixel 3a, Sprint and T-Mobile started carrying Pixel phones as well.

Pixel 4 Car Crash Detection is a feature you hopefully won’t have to use

They say that the best tool is the one that you always or often have on hand and, these days, that is probably people's smartphones. While often portrayed as a corrupting influence, these smartphones can also be used to promote well-being. Accessibility features open up a new world for those with handicaps while health and safety apps try to keep people in one piece, like a new car crash detection and alert system that users will hopefully never have to use in the foreseeable future.

Android 10 Live Caption is coming with the Pixel 4

Android 10 Live Caption is coming with the Pixel 4

At I/O 2019 a few months back, Google announced two impressive features that not only improve the accessibility of the Android platform but also offered users more ways to interact with the world around them as well as with digital content.

The former already rolled out with Android 10 as promised but Live Caption has still to see the light of day. That may be coming in two weeks and it could be a very impressive headlining feature for the phone.

That may finally be changing this year when, along with the Pixel 4, Google launches the Pixelbook 2. It may not be enjoying the same flood of leaks as the Android smartphone but there is no shortage of information about the laptop that is now fighting for the spotlight once again.
