New from Pixel
From taking your body temperature, to circling that thing you need to search, here are new Pixel features for a minty fresh start to the year. 

  • Feel minty fresh this new year with Pixel’s new Mint colorway
    The newest Pixel 8 and 8 Pro in Mint green is a breath of minty fresh air on a cool spring day, welcoming you into 2024 with renewed excitement. Inspired by the vibrant hue you’d find in nature, our latest colorway is a luminous color that invites the mind into a state of energizing calmness. The Mint color is relevant, and lasting. It’s a color that’s equal parts daring, focused, and optimistic for a fresh new year, and a fresher version of you. Available on the Google Store and with Google Fi in the US, Mint is an especially expressive, unique, and flexible phone color that will mirror your personal style–and pairs well with the recently released Pixel Watch Sage Stretch Band. 
  • Take your temperature with Pixel 8 Pro
    With Pixel 8 Pro’s new medical feature in the Thermometer app you can scan your forehead with your phone to get an accurate body temperature measurement for you or a loved one (this is especially handy for hormone and fertility tracking, or with sick kiddos in the house). You can also easily save your results to your Fitbit profile for an even deeper understanding of your health and wellness.
