Question about the Google Pixel smartphone

If anybody has a Pixel or Pixel XL, I have a question-

Does the Google Assistant work from a sleep state, hands free? My current phone (Droid Turbo) is passively listening at all times for me to ask it questions, and I just want to make sure the Pixel will do the same.

Thanks in advance!

Sure does! “Ok Google” and it wakes up. In the Android world, they call this feature “always listening” and many phones have it now.

Asked, and answered! Thanks!

You bet. PS, if you’re looking for a Pixel, wait a few months. The Pixel 2 is expected out soon.
