Google Pixel 4 Could Save you Time When a Call is on Hold


Google Pixel 4, which is scheduled to be released around October, is one of the most anticipated smartphones this year. While Google has already revealed its design to pique the interest of customers, there has been a lot of speculations and rumours about the features of Pixel 4. One of the speculated features that could really make your life a lot easier is Pixel 4 holding a call for you. 

Being placed on a hold is no fun. It's even more frustrating when you are calling a business. You could have to wait for minutes and if you are unlucky, hours! And that's not even the worst part. You are also forced to listen to hold music which seems to have no end. Damn, we hate hold music. 

A report stated that the Pixel 4's Google Assistant will take over for you when a call is on hold. Tapping a button on the smartphone's display will notify Google Assistant that a call is on hold. 

You can therefore turn your attention to other things. When a human voice is on the other end, Google Assistant will alert you so you can continue with your call. 

We will have to wait until Pixel 4's release to see if this feature is real. However, this feature is not beyond what Google can come up with. It should be pretty easy for Google Assistant to differentiate between hold music and human voice, although the usual "your call is very important to us" type of recording may be a little tricky for the Assistant.
