However, after doing some digging 9to5Google discovered that Pixel devices could be getting one exclusive feature at least.
They spotted this after discovering a new Flag in the Chromium source code which has been labelled as ‘Eche’.
This flag essentially allows for Pixel users to cast their screen to a Chrome OS device like a Chromebook.
Explaining how this would work, the Google-centric website said: “Putting it all together, we have a Chrome OS feature that opens a special app when you click on a notification that’s been mirrored from your Android phone. This app will then presumably stream video from somewhere and show it in the window.
“From this, we believe that the ‘Eche’ project is a way to mirror your phone’s screen onto Chrome OS, allowing you to see and use your phone’s apps directly from your Chromebook. When clicking a notification from Phone Hub, Chrome OS will tell your phone to tap the notification then, through streaming video, open the app on your Chromebook as a window.”
