Circle to Search expands to Pixel 7

We recently announced Circle to Search, a new way to search anything on your Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. And soon, Circle to Search will be available on Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, so you can get more information from Search, without switching apps. Simply long-press the Pixel home button or navigation bar and circle, scribble, highlight or tap an image, text, or video, and get the information you need right where you are.

Other features

Screen your calls with improvements to Call Screen

Call Screen is getting even better and can now help get a call started when the caller is silent. With this update,1 you’ll see a “hello” chip when a caller is unresponsive. Simply tap the button while screening a call, and Google Assistant will prompt the caller to speak, so you can understand why they’re trying to reach you. If you can’t answer your screened call right away, Google Assistant will let the caller know to wait a bit longer as they try to reach you.

Amazing photos and videos, directly on Instagram

Your Pixel phone records stunning video with brilliant colors, brighter intensity and higher contrast. You can now capture and share vivid 10-bit HDR videos directly on Instagram Reels, and upload and share beautiful Ultra HDR photos on your Instagram feed.2
