SAN FRANCISCO: The recently launched second-generation Google Pixelsmartphones have an interesting sensor-based feature buried in the software which can automatically switch on “Do Not Disturb” (DND) mode when the user is driving, reports said on Saturday.
Google had also released a new application named “Pixel Ambient Services” along with the new Pixel phones.
The description for the app read: “Pixel Ambient Services provides features based on the local context for Pixel devices”.
According to Android Police, Google provides screenshots for the app featuring an automatic setting when the phones detect a user driving.
The “DND” mode will activate when the user is driving based on the phone’s sensors.
