New features introduced in the Pixel December Feature drop:

  • Let Google Assistant wait on hold for you. Hold for Me is now available as an early preview on your Pixel 3 or later. If you're put on hold, Google Assistant waits on the line and lets you know when someone's ready to talk to you (US only, English only). So you can spend more time doing what's important to you, and less time listening to hold music.
  • Save your Pixel's battery when it counts. Extreme Battery Saver is now available on Pixel 3 and later. When the feature is turned on, your Pixel automatically limits active apps to run the essentials so your battery lasts as long as possible. It's great when you need to keep your Pixel going before you can charge again.
  • Help preserve long term battery health. Adaptive Charging helps preserve battery health over time by dynamically controlling how quickly a Pixel device charges. Just plug in your phone in the evening, set an alarm, and the Adaptive Charging will work its magic.
  • Translate screens on your Pixel. Your Pixel can now detect if you're viewing a website or app in a different language and translate it using Google Lens. Just take a screenshot or swipe into App Overview and tap the Lens chip to see the translation.
  • Make a playlist from your Now Playing history. Now you can make a playlist from the songs you heard while driving or watching TV. Just check your Now Playing history, then export your selected songs into a new YouTube Music playlist.
  • Home screen, sweet home screen. Make your home screen even more personalized with new icons, colors, app shapes, and grid views. You can also customize your wallpapers.
