With that in mind, read on. The feature will allow users to point the camera of the Pixel 2 / Pixel XL 2 to any object to get relevant information on it.

The HTC-made Google Pixel 2 was certified by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the U.S.in the previous month.

The latest beta version of the Google app has been released and gives us a glimpse into a few new features the company is developing for Assistant. We have been hearing rumors and have seen hints about the phone and those details are expected to be unveiled soon, but it looks like a recent APK teardown of the Google app on Android by 9to5Google has given away some clues, or at least confirmed some. Given that Google had yet to say anything officially at that time, it was unclear if this billboard was the real deal or if we were simply being trolled. However, it is not known whether Google Bar is a widget or quick search bar that will be available in the notifications area. Regardless, there are a number of options to customize its appearance, including: color, shading, and shape.

The code hints that users can "Squeeze for your Assistant" to access Google Assistant in the upcoming flagship from Google. Google is also working on introducing new voices and hot words for Google Assistant.

Following on the theme of customizations, there is the possibility of setting a hotword that is not "Ok Google".

Fans Are Pissed Over 'Westworld' Not Winning Any Emmy Awards
Luckily for us, we live in a time when Netflix's Grace and Frankie is on the air, dispelling those rumors one at a time. Before that, star Elizabeth Moss also took home the award for outstanding lead actress in a drama series .

Other new features confirmed in the code deep-dive include the ability to play "ambient noises" that will shut off automatically as you fall asleep and the ability to customise the Google search bar in Android with more colours and designs.

Users will be able to select a sound, with "Play sleep sounds" initiating the feature. The last thing worth mentioning is that Google may add more podcast-related commands including "Continue last played podcast".

You might be able to add more voices to control certain things.

Podcast settings might also be coming to the app, including "Playback preferences".
