Google Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL have automatic DND mode for driving

Google leverages its AI smarts to beat Apple in the camera game

Here are all the other gadgets that Google announced last night

Google said it will use Bluetooth and sensors on device to determine when to activate disturb mode. The "what song is this" is already available on Pixel 2, which now has an updated version of Google Assistant that is set to come to more devices soon.

Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL there are a lot of improvements and new features compared to their predecessors, but perhaps one of the coolest additions is Pixel Ambient Services.

Google has managed to provide a great camera for sure, but what really makes a big leap in the performance of the phone's camera is its artificial intelligence that's giving it a palpable lead over Apple's brilliant camera chops. For all those who are interested in knowing more about what the Pixel 2 and the company's new VR headset bring to the table, check out our guide on what's new with Google Pixel 2 and Google Daydream View. All pictures and videos of the road trip are captured on the Pixel 2 and no colour editing or post production tweaks were made to the images.

Google also announced the Google Pixelbook - created to combine the best features of a laptop, tablet and smartphone. Besides, it doesn't seem like the availability of the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will be any different from what we've seen before - patchy.


This extended OS update from Google for its flagships will prove quite useful for its buyers.

Pixel 2 will start shipping on October 17, although some variants of color selections and internal memory can only be sent five to six weeks ahead. Already you have to favour own-brand headphones if you want the very best performance with some handsets (AirPods with iPhones, for example - though, unlike PixelBuds, they will work with other phones).

Otherwise, the Pixel Buds also stand out thanks to the rather handy Google Assistant integration, allowing you to conduct voice queries, access messages and more with a tap of the right earbud. It will detect when something is worth recording and take still photos or silent videos. Over just the next few months, Google will add more capabilities, as well as the ability to use it in the Google Assistant.

Pixel smartphones have an app that finds information with its camera. With Apple iOS 11, DND is a part of all devices that are supported by the new iOS. Network features include 4G VoLTE support, WiFi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v4.2, Global Positioning System and USB Type-C. A concerned fan took to Twitter to ask why the search giant has not yet unveiled the Pixel 2 phones in the Asian country. Clips aims to help out with that by warning you if its lens ever becomes blocked. Both devices are available for preorder at the Google Store and other outlets in the United States, Canada, Germany, Puerto Rico and the UK.
