One of the most underrated aspects of owning a Pixel phone is the steady stream of software updates. A great example of this is Google’s December update, which takes a handful of nifty features we’ve seen on the newand Pixel 4A 5G and gives them to 2018’s Pixel 3 phones and newer.
Software additions include:
- Hold for Me: You can have Google Assistant take your place when on hold and notify you when a real person is back on the call.
- Extreme Battery Saver: This option on top of the regular battery saver mode severely limits app usage to extend battery life.
- Duo group call screen share: Watch the same video in group calls on Duo.
- Google Photos new photo editor: Machine learning suggests improvements that you can do with just one tap. Fine adjustment tools are easier to use.
- Adaptive Sound: Improves the sound quality of the phone speaker based on its surroundings.
- General adaptivity: Your Pixel becomes more contextually aware. It can adapt battery needs, connectivity and more based on where you are, when you need certain features.
- Mandalorian wallpapers: New wallpapers featuring Mando, Baby Yoda and more.
