Google reveals new software improvements coming to Pixel smartphones
The most important change included in the latest update focuses on the Adaptive Battery feature. After installing the update, Adaptive Battery on Pixel 2 and newer devices will be able to predict with certain accuracy when the phone's battery will be completely depleted and further reduce background activity to let you use it slightly longer.
The next important software addition to Pixel phones is related to safety and privacy. First off, the Personal Safety app that was only available on Pixel 4 phones at launch will be rolled out to all Pixel devices. Furthermore, Google announced that the car crash detection feature will be coming to Pixel 3.
Apart from these changes, Google will release new features such as safety check, which allows users to schedule a check-in from the app at a later time. Also, Pixel users will now be able to enable crisis alerts in the Personal Safety app to be notified about natural disasters or other public emergencies.
Finally, the Recorder app is getting some improvements as well, such as the ability to start, stop, and search voice recordings using the Google Assistant. You'll also be able to save a transcript to Google Docs if you plan to share it with others.
All the new features and improvements included in this update will be rolled out in waves to all compatible Pixel devices starting on June 1.
