Introducing Call Screen
Hey Pixel fans,
Pixel 3 brings a new way to handle unknown incoming calls. The Google Assistant on your Pixel 3 can help you screen unknown calls so you know who’s calling and why before picking up.
Just hit the new "Screen call" button when you get an incoming call. The system will ask why they're calling and you'll see a transcript of their response in real-time. Then you can decide whether to pick up, mark the call as spam, or tap to respond with one of the quick replies (i.e., "Tell me more" or "I’ll call you back.")
This ability to screen calls is designed to help you quickly determine whether the call is important. No more missing an important call because you thought it was spam.
The AI powering this feature runs on your device, so the experience is fast, responsive, and private to you. It keeps power consumption to a minimum and even works without a data connection. If you’d like to try it out before you use it, you can find a demo in your Phone app settings.
Call Screen is initially available in English to Pixel 3 users in the US, and will launch to Pixel 1 and 2 users later this year. We’d love to hear your thoughts on what we can do next to help you get more out of the feature.

Some community members might have badges that indicate their identity or level of participation in a community.
Member levels indicate a user's level of participation in a forum. The greater the participation, the higher the level. Everyone starts at level 1 and can rise to level 10. These activities can increase your level in a forum:
- Post an answer.
- Having your answer selected as the best answer.
- Having your post rated as helpful.
- Vote up a post.
- Correctly mark a topic or post as abuse.
Having a post marked and removed as abuse will slow a user's advance in levels.
