One of the best new features for Android users is Google's calling technology, which was first released in the US last fall but it is only available on Pixel phones. This will change soon, as Motorola today announced that the G7 and One line of smartphones will be the first phones outside of the Google Pixel family to get this feature.
This feature, which was originally launched on Pixel 3 and later expanded to the original Pixel and Pixel 2, uses software to automate call answering and collect information about callers and why. You initiate this function by pressing the "screen call" button when you see an unidentified call, and then you will receive information on the screen in real time, as well as in the form of decoding.
This function is mainly intended to combat robocalls. The Federal Trade Commission reports that it receives approximately 500,000 complaints per month related to automated calls and texts, and that Americans have hit a record 26.3 billion spam calls last year. Now, not only Google, but also major telecoms and Internet service providers, is also working to reduce automated calls and spamming texts. AT & T, Comcast, T-Mobile and Verizon, or announced a service to identify and block spam calls, or, in the case of Verizon and T-Mobile, have already released free services for this.
Motorola says that the seven G7 and One devices have already begun to access this feature as part of a wider integration of the Google Digital Wellhood digital kit. It is currently unclear when most users expect features to be, but they should come as part of an upgrade from Motorola. Digital Wellhood came out of beta testing last November and became available to a wider range of Android phones, so Motorola is probably not the latest Android phone manufacturer to access the Call Screen, which is currently a beta- a version in Canada as the first international market feature.
