Are you annoyed by spam calls, scammers, or unwanted calls on your Google Pixel devices? In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to set up call screening in Pixel 8, Pixel 8 Pro, Pixel 7 Pro, and other Pixel devices. Google Pixel’s call screening feature is helpful to check who’s calling you before receiving a call. Google Assistant picks up a call and finds out the reason for the call. The caller listens to the Assistant’s answers and decides whether to pick up a call.
You can turn on Automatically screen calls in your Pixel devices for the US country only. Also, manually enable screen calls on Pixel devices in select countries, including Australia, France, Germany, Ireland, Canada, Japan, UK, US, Italy, and Spain.
