Now that’s a pitch I’d like to hear!
Google recently released its brand spanking Pixel 3 phone including a feature that will mean you’ll never have to hear from another telemarketer!
The new feature has been named Call Screen, an extension of artificially intelligent technology unveiled earlier this year.
The technology works by tapping a ‘Screen Call’ icon when a suspected telemarketer is calling. The handset informs the caller the recipient is using a screening service from Google and the caller should say their name and explain the purpose for the call.
Users can then read a translation of the caller’s answer and then report the call as spam or accept the call.
