Google has just rolled out a new feature to all its Google Pixel devices in the market. As part of the new information, all the Pixel devices now come with “Ramping Ringer”. This means that when enabled, the smartphone will vibrate and then ramp up the volume of the ringtone gradually. Diving into details, the vibration will last for 5 seconds and ringtone volume will ramp up over 10 seconds. This new feature is available on Google Pixel 4, 4 XL, 3, 3XL, 3a, 2, 2XL and the original Pixel.

Google Pixel Ramping Ringer feature details

As per a report from XDA Developers, this new feature is available in the “Sound” option in the “Settings” app. Once in this section, users need to tap on the “Vibrate for calls” menu to navigate to another screen. Here, you finally need to tap on the option, “Vibrate first then ring gradually”, the last option on the screen. It is worth noting that this is not the first time that we have talked about this feature. This feature initially surfaced during the Android Q beta testing period back in July.

The report also noted that the “Ramping Ringer” feature seems to be rolling out to a wider set of users. In the past, we have seen Google do a limited rollout for its “Rules” menu in the “Settings” app. This is likely because this new feature may be more stable than the “Rules” feature.
