After so many leaks related to Google Pixel 4, we thought there were no big surprises related to its specs and features. However, according to information posted by 9to5Google, you'll come up with a new way to interact with Google Assistant.
It seems that users who buy Google Pixel 4 will have the option to interact with the virtual assistant without having to use the usual phrase "Hey Google".
Google risks more user privacy controversies
At its core, Pixel 4 will come with the "raise to talk" feature, a feature that has been available on Apple Watch for some time to interact with Siri.
With this feature, users will just need to lift their smartphone and start talking to interact with Google Assistant without the 'wake-up phrase'. But for this, they need to talk immediately after lifting the smartphone, otherwise the voice command will be ignored.
It is not difficult to predict that such a feature will cause further controversy regarding user privacy. If enabled, will put the device to record audio quite often. But Google has a plan to avoid future problems.
To avoid further problems, all audio clips recorded by this feature will never be uploaded to the cloud. Instead, they will only be stored in the smartphone's internal memory temporarily.
We will have to wait until its official presentation, but it seems that this feature and form of storage will only be used to initiate the interaction. After recognizing the first voice command, Google Assistant should begin to interact normally, where audio will be stored again in the cloud.
Google Pixel 4 will arrive at a very nice price
Yesterday the first prices for the 4 models expected of the new Pixel came up and are very interesting. While unable to match the offerings of the various Chinese manufacturers, they will certainly gain an advantage over the tops of today's biggest manufacturers, Samsung and Huawei.
- 64GB Pixel 4 – $ 718
- 128GB Pixel 4 – € 766
- Pixel 4 XL 64GB – € 766
- 128GB Pixel 4 XL – $ 930
I recall that the list revealed in the leak presented the values in Canadian dollars, these values in euros being the result of direct conversion to the current exchange rate.
