Google makes Pixel 2 squeezable
We've also made it faster and easier to get to the Google assistant on pixel two.
With a new feature called active edge.
Just give your pixel a quick squeeze where your hand naturally holds the phone and ask for whatever you need.
Here's a quick demo.
I just squeeze the phone, take a selfie.
One hand, no buttons.
Help me out, front row.
Our research team investigated dozens of ways to trigger the assistant.
But squeezing the phone felt the most natural, satisfying, and efficient.
After a lot of work and machine learning, we're able to accurately identify an intentional squeeze.
We're really proud of how it turned out, and it even works when your phone is in a case.
So your assistant is just a quick squeeze away making lots of common tasks on your phone fast and easy.
From calling and texting your friends, to controlling your smart home, to enjoying your favorite music and videos.
