Share your location during an emergency call

When you dial an emergency number, like 911 in the US, you'll see an "Emergency Number" screen. This screen has info and features to help during the emergency.

Note: Some of these steps work only on Android 9 and up. Learn how to check your Android version.

Read your location to the operator

  1. Open the Phone app phone.
  2. Dial an emergency number.
  3. From your screen, read your location info aloud to the emergency operator. Depending what your phone can detect, you could see:
    • Street address.
    • Plus code (a shorter version of longitude and latitude). Emergency operators might recognize these codes.
    • Longitude and latitude.
    • Map.

Share location & emergency details without speaking (US only)

  1. On your Pixel phone, open the Phone app phone.
  2. Dial an emergency number.
  3. On your screen, tap either Medical, Fire, or Police.
  4. The emergency operator will hear:
    • That this voice service is automated
    • The kind of help you need
    • Your location, if your phone can detect it

The operator hears your info in your region's primary language. If that language doesn't work with text-to-speech, your phone uses a similar language, or English.

Note: The automated service works in the country where your SIM card is registered. It won't work when you're traveling, or with Project Fi.
