Well, for Pixel 2 and 2 XL, this feature will be available but with some limitations and the service will be valid only for photos taken before the end of 2020. If you were paying attention, you might have noticed that Google also featured a new Pixel launcher which will come preinstalled on devices.

We have a full-length guide here that explains how Google Assistant works on a range of products, from Android TV devices to the Allo app, and unfortunately, the experience sometimes changes, which can get confusing.

In order to test the Google Pixel 2 Launcher, Google Camera app, and Pixel Wallpapers app, just follow the links below.

As simple as its name, Another Widget doesn't do anything else but add the Pixel 2 calendar widget to an Android phone's screen, but it does a great job of replicating the official feature (as pictured above). The update also brings some new subtle animations, like the app drawer bouncing off the bottom or top when swiping. In addition, the front camera also provides a "face retouching" option which will make the skin texture slightly blur and retouch small spots. Once the users adjust the exposure by tapping and dragging their finger on the screen and selecting the object of focus, these settings can be locked into a place by simply tapping the new icon. Now the widget will only display upcoming calendar events and traffic information, but it is expected to expand in the future. However, one function that truly stands out is the Google Search bar. Also, the Feed that comes up from the left of the home screen needs the launcher to be set as a system app to work.

Today the Pixel 2 launcher (the newest Pixel launcher) was released through 3rd-parties for older devices.
