Google's Call Screen feature has been a boon to Pixel 3 owners wary of tedious telemarketing calls.

Part of the reason the Pixel 3 and 3 XL cameras are so good is down to the clever software algorithms Google has used to smartly enhance snaps and provide modes such as portrait and night sight.

The rumor also suggests the Pixel 3 Lite will come with just a single 8MP selfie camera, while the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have dual front-facing snappers.

Google has confirmed to bring the Call Screen feature even to the first generation Pixel and Pixel XL later this month.

"We've looked into reports of this issue and have identified a fix that will roll out in the coming weeks", the firm told him. Some report that restarting their Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL can solve it, or even performing a full factory reset. However it has not yet given an explanation for what might actually be causing the problem.
