Google Pixel 2 finally adopts Bluetooth battery level reporting

Google Pixel 2 finally adopts Bluetooth battery level reporting

Google's focus with Pixel phones has been on the photography front.

Android Police reached out to Google seeking a clarification, and the company told the publication that both the 2016 Pixel and Pixel XL would continue to receive free unlimited original-quality storage for photos and videos without any time limitations.

Sadly, there has been no indication that this feature will come to any Android phones other than the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, but it turns out that you can replicate the feature on any phone, including an iPhone, with a free app.

In order to test the Google Pixel 2 Launcher, Google Camera app, and Pixel Wallpapers app, just follow the links below. Originally believed to be exclusive to Google Clips and the Pixel 2, a new version of the Google Camera app adds Motion to the original Pixel and Pixel XL.

When Google Duo was unveiled a year ago, it posed as a dedicated video calling app, but a year is quite a long period in smartphone technology. The Search bar's former place is now occupied by an "At a glance" widget, a new feature that will remind you of the events in your Google Calendar.

The app captures the moments beautifully with the help of Google's HDR technology. However, the camera app will not work on other third party devices due to its inability to sync or due to the risk of device crashing once the user tries to install them. It is available through a separate icon above the exposure slider on the right side of the screen.

One of the Pixel 2's top features is its camera, which scored an unprecedented 98 out of 100 from the camera quality testers at DxOMark.

This is a feature that's been available on Google Home since day one, and it's something that I find myself regularly using.
