Honestly, we love Google, it's helpful to find information and almost anything else you need.
The Google Pixel phones are pretty neat too! I mean, that mode where you can take pictures of the stars? As someone who loves taking pictures of the sky, that is a beautiful thing to have on a phone.
When it comes to how Google Pixel works with our Docking Stations though, THANK YOU Google! We truly do appreciate your shout out! Honestly, we do appreciate it! We just wished you had added a little more information, which I'll do right here, since that's our responsibility really.
It works great with our DisplayLink USB C Docking Stations if you want a wired connection Google Pixel phone - monitor:
1. To read emails, review websites, just seeing the work you have to do on your phone, on a bigger screen for greater visibility and ease.
2. If you use your phone to create videos and images, and you want to make sure it looks as good on a Display as it does on your phone, while being able to see the changes instantly as you edit to improve the visuals.
3. That work presentation available on your phone to connect and display at a business meeting in case something happened to the laptop, making it unusable at the 11th hour! A reliable back up plan is always great!
4. If you want to watch YouTube or have something else play
You will be severely disappointed though if you want to watch Copy Protected Streaming sites like Hulu, Amazon Prime, NetFlix, YouTube TV, Disney+ and the likes. You will be able to view the site itself, and even the wonderful advertisements, and preview, BUT when you play movie, your ears will still perk with enjoyment of the the video while your eyes will be sourly greeted by a black screen! A perfect experience for the blind, but they wouldn't need the dock for that then. If this is your sole purpose for looking for this dock - DON'T DO IT! We would rather save you the disappointment if we can, because that just comes with the hassle of returns and such which you really have far better things to do with your time than dealing with that on top of being sad.
There's no known fix for this issue available in the market at the moment that is viable for the right price that would make it a worthy investment. I say it that way, as I know there probably IS an existing solution that works - it just cost too much for most companies to invest in for products that are designed as Work Stations, and this feature just happened to be an additional perk, but not the main focus. Thus if there is an existing solution, it's not viably cost effective.
Keep your fingers crossed though. If the solution comes up we will surely let you know!
