You might soon receive notifications of package delivery detected by your Nest Doorbell as part of Google’s ongoing extension of the At a Glance capabilities for the Pixel series.

Regarding APK Insight: We’ve decompiled the most recent version of an app that Google put on the Play Store in our APK Insight post. When we decompile these files—known as APKs for Android apps—we can find numerous lines of code that allude to potential future features. Remember that Google might or might not ever deploy these features, and our understanding of what they are might be limited. However, we’ll try to give those that are nearly finished a chance to demonstrate how they’ll seem if they do ship. Read on with that in mind.

AT A GLANCE, NEST DOORBELL DELIVERS IN When used in conjunction with a Nest Aware subscription, one of the primary features of the Nest Doorbell series is the front door camera’s ability to recognize when an item has been delivered to and when it has been taken from your doorstep. All of this is intended to deter porch pirates and generally be useful.

It appears Google has planned to add an ambient reminder to Pixel phones in addition to the customary notifications sent by the Google Home app when such a delivery is made. The At a Glance widget, which can be found on both the home screen and lock screen, serves as a representation of this. There will soon be a new setting for this widget that is directly related to your doorbell.

Doorbell is the default doorbell title, andlt;string name=default doorbell titleandgt;
Package delivery is indicated by the string andlt;string name=echo smartspace package delivery toggle titleandgt;.
Know when a package is delivered or picked up andlt;string name=echo smartspace package delivery toggle subtitleandgt; andlt;/stringandgt;

This is Google Pixel phones’ second collaboration with the Nest Doorbell line. The At a Glance section now has the ability to alert you when your doorbell rings and who is at the door. Although there is a slight possibility that alternative package monitoring doorbells might be supported, the package delivery setting does not specifically mention Nest Doorbell.

The Pixels At a Glance area has progressively expanded its feature set over the past few months, culminating in the March Feature Drop, with everything from earthquake alerts to connected device information. From this most recent work-in-progress upgrade, it appears Google has not yet finished enhancing the ambient capabilities of their phones.
