Some of the features that were announced for the Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro were not ready when the smartphones were released. This happens. It was possible to test them with the beta version of Android 13 QPR1 Beta 3. But the latest system update still saved users from the need to test the OS to get new features of the smartphone.
One such feature that is now available to the general public is Clear Calling. It should filter the sounds that enter the conversation from the person who called the user of the new Pixel model, leaving only the voice of the interlocutor.
Unfortunately, only the new Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro models received Clear Calling, owners of previous smartphones will not be able to use the function.
Another important thing that the update brings is a proprietary VPN. Previously available with a paid Google One subscription, the feature is now free for Pixel smartphone users.
Other improvements include surround audio support for the Pixel Buds Pro with head tracking. However, it will start working in January. Also, security and privacy settings are now collected in one hub.
Pixel Watch users also get the Sleep Profile feature with Fitbit Premium. Based on data collected from at least two weeks of use, the watch determines one of six user sleep profiles. This will allow you to see your own daily routine in more detail, see how it affects your sleep and what can be improved.
