Google Pixel to get voiceless emergency operator options

Search engine giant Google has announced a new voiceless emergency operator option for its Pixel smartphones that would allow users with speech impairment or in emergency situations to get quick medical, police or fire brigade attention.

“The feature would first reach Pixel phones and would later be rolled out to other Android phones as well,” Paul Dunlop, Product Manager, Google, wrote in a blog post on Thursday.

Explaining the feature Dunlop wrote: “Tapping on the ‘Medical’, ‘Fire’ or ‘Police’ buttons during an emergency call would convey the type of emergency to the operator through an automated voice service.”
