- A new report reveals how Google is handling Flip to Shhh on the Pixel Fold.
- The feature will require users to fold the device upside down.
Smartphones have offered Flip to Silence for years now, allowing you to put your device’s screen down to silence alerts and ringtones. Google’s method for this feature is called Flip to Shhh, but how will this work on the upcoming Pixel Fold?
“To turn on Do Not Disturb mode, make sure your phone is folded and placed on a flat surface. You will feel a slight vibration when Do Not Disturb is turned on,” the relevant line of text reads, according to the outlet.
Google’s obvious approach to foldable means you simply put the screen cover upside down instead. This seems like a pretty obvious solution, as opening the device and putting the foldable screen down seems awkward and potentially damages that screen. After all, foldable screens are made of plastic and are more susceptible to scratches than the glass screens used in traditional smartphones.
In any case, we’re curious to know what else Google has in store for the Pixel Fold. Here we hope to see some Flex Mode style features, such as Samsung foldsas well as other nifty features to take advantage of the form factor.
