Although consumers so far had mixed experiences with latest Pixel 2, if you want to get the latest Android features, then the smartphone is your best bet and new reports have revealed that Pixel 2 owners soon might have the ability to troubleshoot their smartphones using Google Assistant.
This latest news comes via Android Police who recently talked to a person who was running developers preview of Android 8.1. At the moment, it seems that only Pixel 2 and Pixel 2XL phones support the latest feature as the feature is currently available to Pixel 2 owners only. Thanks to the latest feature, users can ask the Assistant to check smartphone to find any issue. The person who talked to Android Police asked Google Assistant why the phone’s charging was acting up and the assistant started the troubleshooting feature. Following some phrases, if you give permission to the app, it will begin looking into the smartphone and check for problems. If it doesn’t find any problem, then it will ask several questions to users to narrow down problems. Following these procedures, if the assistant doesn’t find any conflicting issue, then it will ask user for permission to go to Google Support for more help.
If you are one of the new users or existing ones who do not have extensive knowledge to fix their Android smartphone, this latest troubleshooting feature using the Google Assistant might come pretty handy. However, at the moment there is no official announcement from Google and it’s unclear if the feature will be released to consumers in the near future. As there’s no official documentation as well apart from the reports, it’s pretty certain that the feature is still work in progress at the moment.
