How Exactly Car Crash Detection will Help You

Given that you have enabled the personal safety, your Pixel 4 will make a vibrating sound in case the crash happens. Next, the Google Assistant will enter into the scene. You will be asked whether you are okay. If you are okay, simply say Cancel and that’s it.

However, if you are in a fatality and you are still aware, remember to say Emergency. In the next second, your device will connect to the nearest police. So, help should reach out to you in no time.


Otherwise, if you are not conscious, then automatically an alert and emergency will be sent to 112. Make sure to have the location detection enabled on your device. Otherwise, it will be useless to have the feature.

There is one unfortunate twist to the whole tale. The Car Crash Detection System is only available in the United States as of now.
