We are already used to the mobile phone which shows us on the screen who the person calling us is by taking the name from the contact book or, if not, by displaying the phone number. But when we use headphones of any kind, it does not happen in the same way because the normal thing is that only the ringing tone soundsAnd there was no possibility that the contact would be announced aloud.
However, that seems to be changing, at least in Pixels with the upcoming Android 12, although Google typically uses Pixels to launch new features that end up being implemented across the rest of the Android ecosystem. Google phone already uses the famous Caller ID, or “ Caller ID, ” by voice
Google Assistant will tell you who is calling you
As often happens in these cases, it was Google’s own Phone app that anticipated the upcoming changes. These changes were present in the code even though it was still latent code that had not been activated. However, it seems that Google has finally decided release the update to start reaching all regions
This new feature will allow Google to use the voice of its virtual assistant to tell us, through the headset or the speaker of the phone itself, who is the contact calling us. This will be a feature that we will need to enable as it will be disabled by default, and It will offer us several options to activate it.
Google phone will tell us who is calling us whether we are using headphones or not
We can tell Google Phone to never announce who is calling us, to only announce it when we have the headphones on (and theoretically we have the mobile far away or stored) or to always announce it no matter what we are. do at that time. This last option, that of “Always”, is the one that will use the speakerphone to tell us who is calling us at the same time, the phone rings.
Functionality is currently expanding across the different regions of the planet and it may take some time to reach us. For us, for example, it has not yet been activated. The feature comes a few weeks after recording Google Phone calls, the app becomes more powerful and versatile.
