    I have a pixel 3a xl from a few years ago that has all the current software updates. I haven’t enabled any specific accessibility features, but if you want me to check if it can do something I can. I did download a Voice Access app, but haven’t needed it since the regular assistant has worked well enough for what I’ve needed.

      Do you know if your Pixel has an accessibility menu? It’s a lifesaver on my Android.

        Yep it does. It looks like that’s a feature that’s built into Android 12 (new OS version they just released about a month ago).

    I don’t have one, but I try to keep up-to-date on the new features they build into these things (some of which eventually trickle down to other android phones). Here are the newest features I know about:

    ‘Assistant voice typing’ in Gboard lets you dictate, edit text hands-free
