The Pixel 2 just stole one of iOS 11's best features

The Pixel 2 just stole one of iOS 11's best features”

Google has launched it's much awaited smartphones of the year, The Google Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL. AndroidPolice spotted a screenshot about this app and its functionality on the new Pixel phone. It clearly describes a rule you can turn on, which will automatically enable Do Not Disturb mode when you're in a moving vehicle.

If you are thinking of buying a new Pixel 2, will these two new features make that more likely? It's also being used to enable that always-listening feature on the lock screen for easier song/artist discovery. Sure, this feature can be disabled, even by drivers.

The app says it uses a combination of Bluetooth and device motion to tell, presumably by checking whether your phone's accelerometers are bouncing around and if your phone's Bluetooth radio sees opportunities to connect to Bluetooth-enabled cars. Unfortunately, what they can't do is differentiate between the driver and a passenger in the same vehicle.

The new Pixel Ambient Services app, which will come preinstalled on Google's latest flagships, includes the feature - though it's off by default. According to Google's fine print on the Pixel 2 page (via Android Central), it seems that this free unlimited storage will only be valid until the end of 2020.

With iOS 11, Apple's iPhones can now automatically silence all notifications and alerts when the phone determines you're driving - to keep you focused on the road. But the giant will definitely offer these kind of new services to make your life more advance and smart.
