Google Pixel 2 is missing this awesome original Pixel feature

Android Police reached out to Google seeking a clarification, and the company told the publication that both the 2016 Pixel and Pixel XL would continue to receive free unlimited original-quality storage for photos and videos without any time limitations. We downloaded and tested it on a Pixel XL running Oreo and it is working flawlessly, Google Now intact.

Courtesy of the good folks over at XDA, the Pixel 2's custom Pixel Launcher and updated Google Camera app with Motion Photo and Face Retouching are available for download and installing on other Android-powered devices. We have seen many apps making their way to the Play store in the past like the Dialer, Google Keyboard (now Gboard), Google Assistant and more.

You can hit the source links below for more details on what these APK teardowns have for the futures of Google Duo and Google Photos apps.

As simple as its name, Another Widget doesn't do anything else but add the Pixel 2 calendar widget to an Android phone's screen, but it does a great job of replicating the official feature (as pictured above). There is also a slightly different animation when expanding folders.

Scott Gediman, a park ranger in Yosemite National Park said it was a tragic case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Detecting shifts in rocks could be a sign that one will break loose days or maybe years later, he said.

Today the Pixel 2 launcher (the newest Pixel launcher) was released through 3rd-parties for older devices.

It's one more feature that brings parity to Google Assistant but a very welcome one.

"Furthermore, the title bar's color has been changed to light grey instead of black while the 'volume key action" has been shifted to 'gestures" option instead of the "general' section at the top of the menu.

Finally, majority of the new features do not appear on all Nexus devices which is supposed to be officially compatible with the camera app.
