• XDA Finds Hints of Forthcoming Pixel Stand



    I'm just now learning about a Google-branded accessory that could be announced alongside the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL next month. Some clever people over at XDA have been assembling a convincing body of evidence that supports a new wired (or wireless) charging dock, bearing the name "Pixel Stand".

    The first and latest hint is the screen grab you see above, showing what you'd see on your Pixel when it's docked. An XDA expert enabled this new UI on their own device by finding and activating some flags deep within the code of the latest Google app (v8.14). Selectable options spill over onto a second screen, and include the following:

    Weather information
    Set a reminder
    Set a timer
    Play a game
    Make a phone call
    Read my messages
    Play music
    Set an alarm
    Set a timer
    Play news
    Explore what’s new

    As for the name Pixel Stand, turns out it's hiding in plain sight, also in the latest Google app. Here's the snippet:

    Code:
    <string name="trusted_dock_action_text">I Agree</string>
    <string name="trusted_dock_cancel_text">No thanks</string>
    <string name="trusted_dock_message">Your Assistant can use your personal info to make suggestions, answer questions, and take actions for you when your phone is locked and on your Pixel Stand</string>
    <string name="trusted_dock_title">Get personalized help when your phone is on your Pixel Stand</string>
    To get the technical details check out the two links immediately below. I myself am not sure how much I'd want to interact with my phone while it's charging, but I'm all in on a fast wireless charging dock, if only for the convenience of it!

    I don't think so, because I don't have any app...

    I don't think so, because I don't have any app set as default. I choose each time I initiate a call from a phone # link.
