In a new update, users have started receiving the option to see and save Google Call Screen transcripts directly on their Pixel smartphones. Basically, Call Screen allows for Google Assistant to take and respond to calls in order to check who is calling and why, all through AI and no user input. The new addition is, now, users can also see transcripts of the call afterwards rather than them disappearing. Before, users were only be able to see a real-time transcript of how the caller responded and after the call ended, the transcript disappeared. However, with the latest update, these transcripts can be saved as per user discretion.
This feature is not supporting third-party call recording and screen recording apps. The reason behind this is that these apps will interfere with the function of the feature itself. It remains unclear how widely Call Screen transcripts is being rolled out, but Pixel owners may check by using the “screen call” option for an incoming call, then going through the process of retrieving the transcripts. If you are one of the lucky ones, you can always check this feature on an incoming call.
The purpose of Call Screen is to stop users from wasting time picking up calls from unknown numbers. The saved transcripts will make it easier for users to look back and remember if they made the right choice in answering a call.
Users are also allowed to give feedback about the Call Screen feature. Google has also mentioned the devices on which it is rolling out. Unfortunately, the company did not include the Google Pixel and Pixel XL in their list. This can also be from a business point of view.
“Call Screen is only available to English speakers in the United States who have Pixel 2, 2 XL, 3, or 3XL devices. If you don’t see Call Screen in the Phone app’s settings, it’s not available yet.”
