Google Pixel’s Manual Screen Call UI/UX is literally all messed up! The devices from the Silicon Valley giant behold a slew of intriguing features up its sleeves. One among them is Call Screening wherein the caller will be asked who they are and why they’re calling you. Google Assistant will then transcribe that content on your screen and you may then mold your decision on whether or not you wish to pick up that call.
Google Pixel’s Manual Screen Call UI/UX is a mess!
In this regard, there exist two settings- automatic and manual. In the former method, Google will automatically transcribe all your calls wherein in the manual approach, you will get the Screen Call button in between the Decline and Accept buttons. And this is where lies the issue. The Screen Call option doesn’t appear alongside accept or decline right after the phone rings, rather it will take a second or two to appear.
As a result of which, the position of all these three buttons changes, and instead of tapping on Accept or Decline, users end up tapping on the Screen Call button. To make matter worse, once the screening has started, you cannot undo the change or even end the call until the Assistant reads out that lengthy introductory paragraph.
This manual UI/UX mess in Pixel could easily be dealt with if the Screen Call button appears at the same time when the Accept or Decline buttons appear, aka as soon as the phone rings. Until that happens, we will be witnessing numerous accidental taps on this feature.
