More details about the rumoured Pixel Stand leaks ahead of the official launch

Google is almost set to announce the new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. However, those are not the only thing we will get to see at the event as the company plans to launch Pixel Stand as well.

We have no details about what exactly Pixel Stand is but it sounds like a dock for Pixel devices. Earlier leaks showed that Pixel Stand will come with Google Assistant and will act as a dock as well as a smart speaker. Now, an app developer (Keiron Quinn) has shared some more info about what Pixel Stand can do. The images show the virtual assistant will be able to carry out quite a number of tasks. He managed to activate the Pixel Stand UI by sending a special intent to the Google app and enabling a particular flag. The interface is a cross between Assistant on phones and the new Assistant Smart Displays. According to the Google app, “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.”

He also listed out the tasks that can be performed using the Pixel Stand. You can head below to take a look at the list of tasks:

  • 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

The app is still in beta and is not finalized yet so the UI or the features can change. Google is set to announce the Pixel devices soon so we will know more then. Until then, take these leaks with a pinch of salt.
