Google Pixel and Pixel Xl gets new features along with Android 8.1 Developer Preview

Google explains how it makes personalized battery life predictions

Pixel customers can perceive the new battery forecasts via Settings Battery, which will now demonstrate personalized battery valuation. Over here, the remaining running hours of the battery can be seen.

In order to help users get to know how well their Pixel smartphone's battery will perform all through the day, Google appears to have added a smart battery feature to these smartphones. Moreover, the Visual Core update for Google Pixel 2 will focus on bringing this same camera experience to third-party apps.

Essentially, Google has updated the algorithms to be much more intelligent in your phone-use analysis and how this can be used to determine estimated battery drain. Your phone looks at your battery usage on similar days and times, and uses that to predict your battery life in a personalized way. The Battery section will reveal both the percentage of battery life remaining and also an estimate of how many minutes this translates to. It will tell you the numbers of hours since the battery was fully charged and how many hours there are until the battery is completely depleted. Further, one can also view the information in the form of a graphical representation.

The first Pixel smartphones "Made by Google" have received some new features with the latest Pixel Launcher update. A tap on the battery icon will show you the results in a graphical manner. In the app drawer original Pixels used to have a simple "Search Apps" field at the top. However, this doesn't mean that the company has left it's old Pixel users behind. To avoid precisely this, Google is implementing a new Smart Battery feature, and all Pixel devices are about to receive it. The Pixel team's Product Manager has just announced an update was released recently for the phones that will improve battery life.
