Quick Shortcut to Free Up Space

Google Photos includes one of the most valuable shortcuts. To access this, all you have to do is long press the Photos icon, and then you will see a shortcut to free up space. Click on that option and the app will automatically find duplicate photos from your phone already saved on Google Photos.

Noticeably, you can perform this in the app itself, but this is a quick way when you need extra phone storage in your Google Pixel.

My Day is one of the most amusing, useful features in Google Assistant. The app can be launch using the voice command. You can say, OK Google, narrate to me about my day, and you will get an update on the weather, news, traffic, and more. On top of that, you can customize the kind of information you want to comprise in the briefing. Access this through Google Personal Assistant, direct to Settings and choose My Day.  Then select the kind of info you want: Weather, meetings, commute, and reminders. In addition, you can also customize your news sources by tapping the settings icon under News.

To top it all, Google has a daily wallpapers feature that switches out your wallpaper image every day. To access these, go to Settings, Display, and then Wallpapers.
