Nokia 6.2 and 7.2 come with great cameras in their price range, PureDisplay with HDR10 support and other goodies but there is one feature that we missed on reporting. Google Assistant has a new “Ambient Mode” that is surprisingly exclusive to Nokia 6.2 and 7.2 for the time being.
Google describes Ambient Mode as a new visual overview that gets triggered when Nokia 6.2 and 7.2 are plugged in. The Ambient Mode makes it easier to see notifications and reminders, start a playlist and control smart home devices on the lock screen of your Nokia 6.2 and 7.2.
While your mobile device is charging on a nightstand, living room table, or kitchen counter, it can still help you stay on top of your day. Google Assistant’s Ambient Mode is a new visual overview that makes it easier to see notifications and reminders, start a playlist and control smart home devices on the lockscreen of your device.
When you’re done, your screen will turn into a personal digital photo frame linked to your Google Photos account to add another personal touch. Ambient Mode will be available on the upcoming Lenovo™ Smart Tab M8 HD (when placed in its smart charging station) and Lenovo Yoga™ Smart Tab (when you pop out its handy kickstand), as well as when you start charging your new Nokia 7.2 and 6.2.
So, in case you are the owner of a new Nokia 7.2 and haven’t tried Ambient Mode yet, do so and do let us know in comments about the experience.
