Google Pixel 4 Render Shows Off Complete Phone Ahead of Launch; Pixel Launcher, Themes Apps Now Available for Download

Within the final hours, the boys of XDA Builders have found how Google has up to date an software of the Pixel 2 XL referred to as "Emergency Info", renaming it to "Private security" (private safety).

The Pixel 4 rumor frenzy continues with a brand new development that doesn't necessarily concern the upcoming fourth-gen Google phones. If not, and you do need help (or if you don't respond) it'll automatically dial 911 and provide the emergency services with your location. Based on those images, it appears people will have more than one opportunity after a detected accident to confirm that they're okay and prevent an emergency call from being placed; the demo apparently asks twice for a response before initiating the 911 process.

The app will also allow you to share your emergency status with your contacts by sending them a custom message and your location. Both apps are speculated to come pre-installed on the Pixel 4.

Google will unveil the Pixel 4 duo on October 15, but expect to hear more about this pair in the days leading to the official announcement.

When it formally unveiled Android 10 at its I/O developer conference back in May, Google showed off a nifty new for the operating system called Live Caption.

You'll also be able to upload the audio file and transcription in widely compatible formats to Google Drive once you're done, so you can copy and paste the transcription, for instance, or format it for an article. Google's phones are about to get a similar feature, only it should be even faster. The outlet stated they were able to access the feature via an Android application package (APK) for the Pixel 4 obtained by Nextrift.

Another feature of Google's new Personal Safety app is the option to show your medical information and emergency contacts on the lock screen.
