In June, we’re dropping new features for Pixel, including updates that focus on providing more support to stay safe, extend your battery life,  and help you disconnect more easily at night. The features will begin rolling out to Pixel devices starting on June 1st and will roll out in stages over the next two weeks.  Update to the latest Android version and update your Android apps to receive the latest features. Once updated, look out for a notification from the Tips app to learn more about all of the ways your Pixel just got better. 


Your Pixel can help keep you safe
Pixel helps you stay safer with the following new features available through the Personal Safety app.

  • Emergency sharing with real-time location
    When you initiate an emergency share from the Personal Safety app, all of your emergency contacts will now be updated with your real-time location.

  • Safety check
    With safety check, you can set up a time for your phone to confirm if you’re safe, for example after a run or hike alone. If you don’t respond, emergency sharing automatically starts.

  • Crisis alerts
    Get notified about natural disasters and public emergencies affecting your area.

  • Personal Safety features for more Pixel phones
    The Personal Safety app with the features above is now available on all Pixel devices with Pixel 3 now also supporting car crash detection*[1][2].

You can access these new features by tapping the “Safety” icon in your apps drawer. If you are on a Pixel 3a or earlier devices, you will first need to add the app in Settings.

This will roll out to all Pixel phones, globally. Learn how to get help in an emergency using your Pixel phone.


Bedtime made better
Your Clock app can now help you maintain a consistent sleep schedule. Fall asleep to calming sounds and limit interruptions while you sleep — and if you stay up on your phone past bedtime, you'll get a snapshot of how much time you’re spending awake and on which apps. Each morning, you can wake up with your favorite track or with a gradually brighter screen with Sunrise Alarm.

To get started, update and open the Clock app, then tap the Bedtime tab.

This will rollout to Pixel 2, 3, 3a, and 4, globally. Learn more about Bedtime with your Clock app.


Improved Adaptive Battery feature
Adaptive Battery already learns your favorite apps and reduces power to the ones you rarely use.  Now, Adaptive Adaptive Battery on Pixel 2 and newer devices, can predict when your battery will run out and further reduce background activity to keep your Pixel powered longer. .To enable Adaptive Battery, go to Settings > Battery > Adaptive Battery, and turn on Adaptive Battery.

This will roll out to Pixel 2, 3, 3a, and 4, globally. Learn more about Adaptive Battery.


Recorder is better together with the new Google Assistant and Google Docs
You can now start, save, and search recordings in the Recorder app using the new Google Assistant*[3]. Just ask “Hey Google, start recording my voice” to start recording on your phone, or “Hey Google, find my voice recording about lasagna” to find that recipe you’d recorded.

Also, saved transcripts can now be easily exported to Google Docs*[4]. Within the Recorder app, choose a recording, tap “Transcript” to show the transcript, then tap the three dots menu on the top-right corner, and tap “Save text to Google Docs.” 

The new Google Assistant capabilities will roll out to Pixel 4 in English, and the Google Docs feature will be available to Pixel 2, 3, 3a, and 4, globally. Learn more about using the new Google Assistant with your Recorder app.
