In that case, when you are behind the wheel, you will be focused only on driving and not on your phone. This feature comes handy in a situation when using deaths due to distracted driving is on the rise.
The Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones have sensors in the phone to tell the device that you are in a car that is moving. Unfortunately, there is no way to differentiate between the passenger and driver in the same car. So, even if you are not driving, the Pixel 2 will go to the Do Not Disturb mode until you disable the feature. Otherwise, whenever this feature is enabled, it will turn on automatically when you are in a moving car.
The presence of the Do Not Disturb feature was found in a Google Play Store listing of the Pixel Ambient Services app via AndroidPolice. This app lets users find the name of the tune within the earshot.
