Google's New Phone Will Let You Have a Robot Answer Calls For You

posted by Todd Robbins - 

This may sound extreme, but I would rather stab myself in the head 27 times than answer a call from an unknown number.

And Google knows that . . . I mean, they know everything about us, so it makes sense they'd know how much we hate answering phone calls. And they just announced there's a new feature to help out with that in their new Google Pixel 3 phone.

It's called "call screen." When you get a call, a ROBOT can answer it for you . . . it'll transcribe what the person is saying . . . and then you can pick a reply for the robot to say to them.

So, yeah, you answer your phone without actually having to talk to anyone. What a dream come true.

Google is also planning to roll out the feature to other Pixel phones next month.
