Right now, you can get the Google Assistant to listen to you at the touch of a button or by saying "Hey Google" or squeezing the pages of your phone. The Pixel 4 series, however, is provided with a tip to introduce a new way of activating the app.
According to 9to5Google, there's a new way to raise conversations in which you just have to raise your phone and communicate with Google Assistant.
The voice interaction apparently has to occur immediately after picking up the phone, and the required voice adaptation is performed on the device itself. Other people can not reach the function so simply by lifting the phone.
However, it is not certain that "Raise to talk" will be available to Google Assistant in time for the launch of Pixel 4 on October 15. The functionality may be released as an update later.
Count down the days
We know that an improved Google Assistant is on its way as Google introduced some of its features – including a more intuitive way to continue a conversation with the app – at the Google IO event in May.
With the upcoming update, the Google Assistant is also reported to be able to answer a few questions offline and execute some commands offline. It seems that Google sees software as a way to really highlight its pixel mobile phone series.
We've heard many rumors about the hardware on the way, thanks to a seemingly endless series of leaks around the Pixel 4 phones, including hands-on videos with previous versions of the handsets.
The Pixel 4 and the Pixel 4 XL will finally be officially launched on October 15th, and we believe Google has some other hardware surprises in store. Whatever is on the way, we bring you all the news as soon as it happens.
