We all could stand to save a little time in our busy schedules, especially as the new year approaches. If you find yourself dealing with an issue that requires calling customer support — like a canceled flight or a lost package — and you want to make the process much simpler and faster, try this Pixel-exclusive feature.
Direct My Call is a feature that can help you quickly navigate menu options while on a call. When you call an eligible business with an automated menu, like certain airlines and major retailers, Direct My Call shows what the automated voice says and presents the options on your Pixel's screen — then, simply tap on each option to move through the call. You can now even use Direct My Call with some business phone numbers without a toll-free prefix
. Direct My Call is available in English on Pixel 3a and newer devices in the United States and on Pixel 6 and newer devices in the U.K.
