We've spent a couple of months with the Google Pixel, and we like to think we know it quite well. We previously uncovered some of Android 7.0 Nougat's secrets, but here we'll focus on the Pixel proper.
Here's a smattering of tips and tricks designed to help you master your Pixel or Pixel XL.
1. Switch off app suggestions
Swiping up from the bottom of the screen reveals the Pixel's app drawer. Here apps are presented in alphabetical order, save for the uppermost row where a line of suggested apps lives.
Long-press the Home screen and select 'Settings'. From there you can turn off 'App suggestions' (which when enabled may slowly sap your data allowance), in addition to hiding the Google app which we'll cover next.
2. Customise the Google feed
Swiping right from the Home screen will show you a Google stream curated just for you. Here Google shows you cards for the weather forecast, upcoming calendar entries and other content it thinks you want to see.
There are several preferences to tinker with - start with the Hamburger menu (top left) and click 'Customise'. This is where you can see the kinds of information Google stores on you, including location, travel preferences, apps, websites visited, sports, stocks, TV and films (and anything else) in which you've previously expressed an interest.
You can share as little or as much information as you're comfortable with here, or (as per our previous tip) hide the Google app completely.
3. Turn on the notification light
We'll admit it. We didn't realise the Pixel had a notification light until one helpful reader pointed it out to us. Google doesn't make it easy to find - it's hidden behind the Settings cog in the Device > Notifications menu. Use the slider to activate and have your notifications pulse a different colour depending on their type.
