The relevant screenshot with Do not disturb functionality appeared on the web via Android Police. However, we don’t have any exact information about what message the caller hear when a call is made to a person who has activated this feature.

If you enabled the feature before driving, the Pixel 2 will sense and enable Do Not Disturb mode when you are in a moving car or vehicle.
