Google is bringing a new power menu to Pixel smartphones that also offers faster and more noticeable access to emergency information.



Google has developed a new start menu for Android. This is now offered exclusively on Pixel smartphones. However, this new variant is also conceivable later for Android devices from other manufacturers. A big advantage now is the carousel at the top of the screen, which gives access to reserved tickets and Google Pay credit cards.

If you touch the displayed key, you will get more emergency information. Blood group, allergies and emergency contacts. Google could perhaps adjust the map shown here to provide even more detail at first glance. The revised power menu can be accessed by briefly pressing the switch on the smartphone. This applies to all Android smartphones.

This new menu, as you can see in the screenshot, is available since the March 2020 security update.
