Simplified Protection Level Menu added to Google Pixel Call Screen
It’s official! Google has finally added a Simplified Protection Level Menu to its Pixel Call Screen feature. This new update is aimed at simplifying the call screening process by offering users the option to choose a low, medium or high protection level to block spam calls more effectively.
What is Call Screen?
For those who don’t know, Call Screen is a feature exclusive to Pixel smartphones that allow users to screen incoming calls using Google Assistant. Once activated, a recorded message is played, informing the caller that the recipient is currently busy and to state their name and the reason for the call. The recording is then transcribed and displayed on the user’s screen, giving them the option to answer the call, reject it, or report it as spam.
The new update
With the new update, users will be able to choose the level of protection they want with the 3 options available: low, medium, and high. The low protection level will only block incoming calls from known spam numbers, while the medium protection level will also block calls from unknown numbers. On the other hand, the high protection level will flag calls from unknown numbers as “Potential Spam” and notify the user of the caller’s name and the reason for the call.
Why is this important?
The addition of a simplified protection level menu is important as it offers Pixel users greater control over the calls they receive while also streamlining the screening process. Spam calls have become a significant issue globally, with millions of people receiving unwanted calls every day. This feature ensures that Pixel users no longer have to worry about spam calls interrupting their day, making it easier for them to receive and answer calls from known contacts.
How to update your Call Screen feature
To get the latest update for your Call Screen feature, you must first ensure that you have the latest Android version on your Google Pixel smartphone. Once you have checked and updated your Android system, head over to the Google Play Store and ensure that you have updated the Phone app.
Overall, the development of a Simplified Protection Level Menu for Google Pixel Call Screen is a welcome update that will help users combat unwanted calls while making the screening process more streamlined. By offering users the option to choose between three protection levels, Pixel users can now customize their experience and receive only the calls that matter.
