Google went all out today with a wall of launches of new hardware and tech. Here’s a collection of all the cool stuff Google launched, and you can watch the full event yourself if you have 90 minutes and a particularly deep curiosity streak for all things Google.
Here is everything announced at the Made by Google 2022 event:
Everything Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro
The highlight of the event was the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro phones. The Android flagship phones are extraordinary powerhouses that push the envelope of what Android can do.
- Google’s Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are coming along, and we took a closer look at what’s new in the flagship Android phones, clocking in at $599 and $899, respectively.
- Hardware Editor Brian got up close and personal with the Google Pixel 7.
- Google Assistant gains a bunch of new smarts, with voice typing, calling and transcription tools.
- Pixel 7 will include a snoring and coughing detection feature, helping users get an early warning for sleep issues.
- The new phones included Guided Frame, a feature that lets blind and visual-impaired folks take selfies with voice guidance.
- A surprise, perhaps, but Google’s Pixel 7 phones will include a VPN solution as part of the OS.
- Last year, Google introduced the Tensor processors in its Pixel phones — and this year’s edition is powered by the second-generation Tensor processor — the G2.
A new smartwatch
- Google’s Pixel Watch costs $350 and represents the company’s first serious foray into the category.
- Our hardware editor Brian went hands-on (wrists-on?) with the Google Pixel watch.
Smarter tablet, smarter accessories
- Google teased its new Pixel Tablet that’s being released later this year.
- There’s a new pixel tablet coming up, and Google also showed a new smart charging dock, which turns the tablet into a smart home device.
