Pixel 7 Latest Update Brings New Features like GoogleOne VPN and Clear Calling

Google is launching its latest “Feature Drop” for Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro to bring call quality features like Clear Calling, Speaker labels for the Recorder, and free GoogleOne VPN. The update also includes the latest Fitbit sleep features for Pixel watches and new security & privacy settings.

Currently, the “Feature Drop” is available only for Pixel 7 and 7 Pro models. After the update, the users will be able to avail of the GoogleOne VPN service for free instead of paying a $10 per month storage subscription. Another important feature called Clear Calling will minimize the background and unwanted noise to enhance the calling experience and audio quality.

In the recorder app, the Speaker labels will allow users to assign various labels to multiple people involved in the recording. While recording lectures or conferences, the speaker will automatically add a line break when there is a change in transcription, which is extremely useful for journalists, podcasters, and interviewers.

Apart from Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, the new Google update also brings some latest privacy and security features for other pixel models. These new features also include action cards to offer advice on software security. 

The phones supported by Pixel Buds Pro can also witness the Spatial Audio feature in January 2023. Apart from it, the team is also planning to expand the Live chat translation to more languages and regions in the coming months.

For the Google Pixel watch, too, the update has several features. In November, the company previewed the new Fitbit sleep profile for Pixel watches. It is now available with a monthly “sleep animal” feature that will analyze your sleep quality. A similar feature is available on Samsung Galaxy watches under the “Samsung Health” tab. It even has a classification of animals based on their sleeping patterns, as it is believed that every creature has a different sleeping pattern.

The latest sleep profile features will also have useful insights based on your sleep cycle, like “nights with long awakenings and “time before sound sleep.” Also, the new update will change the widget or tile styles for the Contacts and Weather widgets on Pixel watches.

Another great feature you can see in the Pixel watch is SOS or emergency alert. Inspired by the apple watch, this feature will alert your emergency contacts when facing a sudden fall and no response from the wearer.
