The Pixel 4 might introduce ‘raise to talk’ for Google Assistant


Right now you can get the Google Assistant to start listening to you with a button push, or by stating “hey Google”, or by squeezing the sides of your phone– but the Pixel 4 series is being tipped to introduce a new method of triggering the app.

According to 9to5Google, a brand-new ‘raise to talk’ alternative remains in development, where you just need to lift up your phone and start talking with utilize Google Assistant.

The voice interaction will require to take place right after you raise the phone, apparently, and the essential voice match processing is carried out on the gadget itself– so other people will not have the ability to get at the feature simply by selecting your phone up.

However, it’s not specific that ‘raise to talk’ for Google Assistant will be ready in time for the Pixel 4 launch on October 15– it might be that the functionality gets pressed out as an upgrade at a later date.
Counting down the days

We understand that an enhanced Google Assistant is on the way, due to the fact that Google flaunted a few of its functions– including a more instinctive method of continuing a conversation with the app– at the Google IO event back in May.

The upcoming upgrade will also enable the Google Assistant to respond to some questions and handle some commands even while offline, according to reports. It seems that Google sees software as one way to really make its Pixel phone series stand apart.

We have actually heard a lot of rumors about the hardware that’s on the method too, thanks to a relatively limitless series of leaks around the Pixel 4 phones, consisting of hands-on videos with early versions of the handsets.

The Pixel 4 and the Pixel 4 XL will at last get their official unveiling on October 15, and we believe Google might have a few other hardware surprises in store too. Whatever is on the method, we’ll bring you all the news as it occurs.
