Some Google Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL units already receiving the AI-powered Call Screen feature
As we mentioned in our full review of the Pixel 3 & 3 XL, the feature works like a charm. It adds a “Screen Call” option to the typical “Accept” or “Decline” when a phone call comes in. Choosing this new option will send your caller to a voicemail-like service which asks the caller to state their business. In real time, the Pixel will transcribe the caller’s response for you to see and choose how to respond, giving you a handful of preset responses such as “who is calling?”, “I’ll call you back later”, and “tell me more.” All of which are relayed to the caller, via the Google Assistant, to help you handle these calls properly.
