Google Confirms No Pixel Watch This Year

Google Confirms No Pixel Watch This Year

In this guide we'll go over some of the best new Google Pixel 3 features that are coming to your Pixel and Pixel 2 XL. As with other protective cases in the series, the new cases are touted as drop proof from up to 6.6-feet, as well as offering water, snow, dust, and debris protection provided by IP-5X-certified port blocking. The feature was demoed on the Pixel 3 during Google's annual hardware keynote, and again many believed, it would be a Pixel 3 exclusive, to begin with.

The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are the first series of products designed by the team after joining Google.

Google announced as many as 100 new things at I/O 2018 but the one thing that really stood out was Duplex, a smart feature that lets the Assistant make phone calls for you on your behalf. Another terrific feature is Call screen feature.

Google's Home Hub will launch here in Australia on October 23rd, in four colours: Chalk (grey), Charcoal (black), Aqua (blue) and Sand (pink), for $219 from JB HiFi, Harvey Norman, Telstra, Optus, Vodafone, The Good Guys, David Jones and Big W - though only Chalk and Charcoal are available at retail, with Aqua and Sand coloured options exclusively available from the Australian Google Store.

The grand finale of announcements (already spoiled announcements) is the new line of Pixel phones.

When it's not in use, the new Chromecast can turn your TV into a digital photo frame displaying images from Google Photos.

In terms of design, both phones employ a metal frame with glass fronts and backs - these are required to enable wireless charging.

Google from their "Made by Google" keynote has stepped into the land of tablet/laptop hybrid computers much like the Microsoft Surface with it's latest 2-in-1 device the Google Slate.

Google will be bringing a "visual snapshot of your day" to Assistant letting you see "event recommendations, pull up your recent notes and lists and get important reminders" in an overview with either a tap on the icon on the top right, or by swiping up. That's why I'm so thrilled that Google has doubled down on its Pixel hardware, now in its third year. It's now more similar to optical zooming you'd find on cameras with two lenses. However, since many of its less-demanding software features will roll out to the Pixel 2 eventually (such as Google Duplex for automated phone responses), you certainly wouldn't be settling to stick to a Pixel 2.

Google's Pixel 3 phones are now up for preorder.

For the time being, the Pixel 2 will continue to retail alongside its upgrade.

Google's integrated AI helps improve the Pixel 3 camera with a slew of new features.

As we know, today smartphone industry runs on trends.

Google has signaled that it wants to be a leader in the Android camp, but for any real breakthrough it must first need to lay out a clear market positioning vis-a-vis other Android phone makers.

Google faced a fresh privacy backlash Tuesday over a glitch that may have exposed data from half a million users, overshadowing the Silicon Valley's launch of a new smartphone and other devices.

In DisplayMate, however, have not said a word about how the standard Google display Pixel 3 has demonstrated in tests against his "older brother".

Google's Made by Google event officially kicked off with snippets of YouTube videos revealing the leaked Google products, then followed by an embarrassed emoji.
