The top Google Pixel tips of 2022
More and more there are Android tips – and then there are Pixels tips.
Owning a Google Pixel phone has become a kind of ticket to a unique top-tier Android experience. With Google’s pure vision for the way the operating system itself should work (and none of the experience-impairing and often even privacy-compromising layers that other device makers like to wean into the software) – not to mention talk about all the extra bits of exceptionally useful Google goodness available only in the Pixel environment – the Google Pixel increasingly represents Android at its best. And as anyone who’s spent any time with a Pixel can tell you, nothing else comes close to comparing.
That’s why this year I wanted to put together a special series of Pixel-specific tips to complement my collection of Android tips of more general interest from 2022. Some of the most interesting and beneficial bits of Googley intelligence are increasingly only relevant to those of us who actively palm Pixels. And if you’re lucky enough to be part of that group, you deserve to have the best Pixel experience possible.
So here, without further ado, are the most memorable Google Pixel tips from Android Intelligence over the past year. Read them, remember them, and then do yourself a favor and come check out my free Pixel Academy eCourse to treat yourself to a whole treasure trove of advanced Pixel knowledge.
