The setting mentions it uses "device motion and Bluetooth connections", so we assume it also could connect to an Android Auto or Android Automotive device and receive information about whether the vehicle is driving or not.

The Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are available for pre-order in the US, with shipping set to begin on 17th of this month, however, availability in other markets remains unknown. But the main star of the show was definitely the Google Pixel 2 and the Google Pixel 2 XL, their two new flagship phones. The camera sure offers a immaculate pictures, but how Google made it possible is a lesser known fact.

Google launched several new products at the Pixel 2 event in San Francisco. Independent camera testers, DXO, has rated the Pixel 2 camera as the best camera of any smartphone, with a record-breaking score of 98, far higher than the score of 89 for last year's Pixel, which at the time was the highest score as well.

The feature will allow Google to push out software updates faster to Google Assistant, over updating the entire OS itself or relying too much on the server side releases. The downside to this is that it's likely the phone won't know if you're actually driving or just a passenger. This hybrid dual-SIM supported smartphone has a 16-megapixel rear camera with dual-tone LED flash and a secondary 2-megapixel camera.

The uncomfortable mode of Pixel 2 can be activated from this menu. The Pixel 2 comes with a 5-inch full HD AMOLED display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 16:9. In tablet mode, users can watch videos or view other content, read books or take notes. However, if you're looking for something with a more extensive angle for watching movies on the go, the Pixel 2 XL should help in that area with its 6-inch screen.

Pixel smartphones have an app that finds information with its camera.

The ability to hear ambient sound also makes it easier to try out one of the features Google was keen to highlight: integration with Google Translate. Now, this latest OS update confirmation for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL means that buyers will not only be able to get the next Android P and Android Q updates for the Pixel 2 phones, they will also get Android R as well. Not only did the company announce a host of new products, including two powerful new devices backed by the power of Android, it also revealed new hardware for fans of smart speakers and smart home technology. The camera rating company says: "We're in danger of running out of superlatives when describing the major image quality attributes of the Google Pixel 2". You can always get the chargers from Amazon.

While Modojo battled away at the flood of incoming news this week, Google took to the stage to reinforce Android's place in the modern mobile market. Both devices are available for preorder at the Google Store and other outlets in the United States, Canada, Germany, Puerto Rico and the UK.
