Google Pixel and Google Pixel 3 come with some really interesting features and one of the features that people are really curious to try out is the Call Screening Feature where the Google Assistant will automatically receive your call and give the transcribe the conversation write on your smartphone screen.

If you do not own a Google Pixel 3 or Google Pixel 3 XL and rather own the last generation Google Pixel smartphones the Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL, you still can enjoy the call screen feature.


In this article, we are going to to tell you just that, so get your pixel 2 and pixel 2 XL smartphones ready for this new feature.

The feature has been made possible by a an XDA senior member coolsid8. It, however, would require a rooted device.

If you are not interested in rooting your device then you should wait for the official release which is also coming pretty soon as stated in the Google Pixel Event.

If you have no issues with getting your pixel 2 and pixel 2 XL devices rooted you can continue further.

Please note: (1) this method only works for the rooted devices only and (2)works for only the US Citizens since the feature is only roll out to the US only.

Download Root enabled file explorer from Google Play Store, we will recommend you download ES Explorer.

You can go to /data/data/com.google.anroid.dialler/ share_prefs on the explorer and find dialer_phenotype_flags.xml

Look for __data_rollout__SpeakEasy.CallScreenOnPixelOneAndTwoRollout__launched__ and change the value from ‘false’ to ‘true’. You can also use the Find feature in the text editor for the same.

Look for __data_rollout__SpeakEasy.OverrideUSLocaleCheckRollout__launched__ and change the value from ‘false’ to ‘true’. Use the Find feature in the text editor if you can’t spot it.

Next, search for G__enable_speakeasy_details and change the value from ‘false’ to ‘true’. You can also use the Find feature in the text editor.

Look for G__speak_easy_bypass_locale_check and change the value from ‘false’ to ‘true’. You can use the Find feature in the text editor.

Find G__speak_easy_enabled and change the value from ‘false’ to ‘true’. Once again, you can use the Find feature in the text editor.

Open Settings, navigate to apps and select Phone. Force stop it

Call Screening is now available under inside settings of Google Phone.

XDA mentions that this feature may or may not work on all the devices but it’s really worth giving a shot
