According to the report published on Android Police, It appears that Google Pixel 2 phones running the Android 8.1 Oreo developer preview can take advantage of a dedicated troubleshooting wizard via the Google Assistant. By asking a specific question like “What is draining my battery?” the Google Assistant can automatically help identify problems with your device.
