Google Assistant

Looking for answers? Turn to the Pixel’s Google Assistant - an artificial intelligence similar to Apple’s Siri, which can help you set reminders, send texts, check your calendar, and more. Simply say ‘Ok Google’ and ask your question.

The Assistant is especially great because it’s so conversational: it understands when two questions are linked and will provide you with answers accordingly. (For example, if you ask it ‘what’s the weather like in London?’ before asking ‘how about Edinburgh?’, it’ll understand you’re still talking about the weather.

What’s more, the Assistant gets smarter and smarter the more you use it, as it learns more about your habits and usage. Just make sure to talk to it often!

Camera And Video

The Google Pixel’s 12.3MP camera achieved the highest ever score on DXOMark when it was released (it has since been overtaken by the HTC U11), and captures incredible photos even in low light.

The six-element lens system captures photos in HDR+ mode (which basically means that the quality is very, very good) and its shutter speed is amazingly fast. All this results in some of the best photos you’ll ever take on a smartphone, and the camera can also record video in 4K quality and slow-motion videos in HD - so get snapping!

It Was All A Daydream

With their cardboard headset, Google were an early adopter of Virtual Reality, the tech on everyone’s lips at the moment. Now, the Pixel features its own VR platform, known as Google Daydream.

This makes the Pixel fully compatible with Google’s Daydream View headset and controller, and allows you to experience virtual reality video and games without having to shell out for an expensive headset and computer!
