Google will launch Pixel Buds 2 soon

Google indirectly confirms the Pixel 4 and 4 XL won't be released before October 18

The device doesn't come in the actual retail box from Google, but it is bundled with the official 18W USB-C charger, as well as a headphone dongle.

As per XDA Developers, the updated description on the now-called Personal Safety app says that the primary goal of the app is that it "helps you stay safe and connected to first responders and your emergency contacts".

A Google Pixel phone could save your life in you're in a auto crash. After this, the app sounds an alarm at full volume and asks if the user is okay. In addition, Personal Safety now only works in the United States. It isn't clear if this is a feature exclusive to Google's upcoming Pixel 4 handsets, or if it will be rolled out to older models too.

A couple of years ago, Google introduced the Pixel Buds. Some high-impact activities could also trigger the crash detection feature, but you'll have the option to tell it that you are OK.

When a auto crashes, the smartphone recognizes, according to the leaked description, that an accident has occurred and then triggers a loud alarm. However, it's expected to be available only on the Pixel 4 and 4 XL phones out on October 15, 2019. Required by law, the system calls the emergency services in the event of a crash, and logs the location and time, as well as the license plate and the number of passengers.

Google is also said to add a new "Reach to check phone" feature that activates the display when your hand hovers over the screen to show time, notifications, and other information.

Another example shows that you can open the Google Photos app, specify what kind of pictures you want to see, and send it as a message attachment to one of your contacts. The Car Crash Detection feature will be available and as its name says, it will be able to detect that you've been in a car crash and will automatically dial 911 and based on your sensor readings, it should be able to locate you.
