Here’s everything Google announced, summarised:

  • Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL: Google’s Pixel line is getting major upgrades with an improved design, new 90Hz Smooth Display, full-featured Face Unlock, next-gen Assistant that runs (mostly) on-device thanks to the Pixel Neural Core, a Motion Sense feature that lets you interact with your phone with gestures, a second camera on the back that enables new features like Live HDR+, Motion Mode, Dual Exposure, improved Portrait and Night Sight modes, upgraded batteries, and stereo speakers. The devices come in Just Black, Clearly White, and Oh So Orange. Starts at $799, pre-orders today.
  • Next-Gen Google Assistant: Google’s next-generation Assistant is less intrusive, and runs locally on the Pixel 4, offering significantly improved performance and deep Android 10 integration that lets you perform a lot of different actions without the need to use your hands.
  • Pixelbook Go: Google’s latest Chromebook device is a classic clamshell laptop with a 13.3-inch display (Full HD or 4K), up to the Core i7 processor, up to 256GB of storage, front-firing speakers, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. It comes with a clean, minimalistic design built for portability. Coming in Just Black and Not Pink, the Pixelbook Go starts at $649, you can pre-order today.
  • Nest Mini: The second-gen Home Mini gets rid of the Home branding, introduces a new wall-mount, get rids of the 3.5mm headphone jack (unfortunately), but features improved audio, increased maximum volume, and 2x bass at the same price of $49. Oh, and, there’s a new Blue color.
  • Nest Wifi: Google’s second-gen Google Wifi also gets rid of the Home branding, and now features a Nest branding. The new Wifi Router system includes the main Wifi Router, as well as smaller Wifi Points that act as beacons to extend your network range. The new Wifi Points act as Google Assistant speakers and include new WiFi-specific Assistant commands. They are fully compatible with the older Google Wifi system and now come in a much more home-friendly design.
  • Pixel Buds: Google is getting rid of the cable that ran between the original Pixel Buds, making the new Pixel Buds truly wireless. The new earbuds include a new Dynamic Sound feature, offer 5 hours of battery life and up to 24 hours of battery life with the wireless charging case, and cost $179. It’s coming early 2020.
  • Google Stadia: Google’s cloud game streaming service is launching November 19th for those who purchased the Founder’s Edition.

So yes, that’s all Google had in store for its fans today. As usual, make sure to check out the full coverage on all these devices for more details.

    <p>"get rids of the 3.5mm headphone jack (unfortunately),"</p><p><br></p><p>None of our Google home or mini units have headphone jacks, or Aux in jacks. Just the power input. The Max is supposed to have an Aux in jack. &nbsp;If the Pixel 4 brought back the headphone jack. now that would be news!</p><p><br></p>

    <p>Tech corps names have been dragged through the mud so much as of late that I can't blame Google for the silly rebranding. Silly, unfortunate, but necessary. </p>

    <p>I know about Google, "let's do evil", the Alphabet company. They have sworn to alter the outcome of the 2020 election by meddling with search results and programming their users with propaganda. Another new phone just like to old new phone? No on cares.</p>

    <p>Wait wait… they’re rebranding Google Home to Nest?</p><p><br></p><p>Why?</p><p><br></p><p>And Stadia is a product name that only El Goog could come up with. Apparently it’s more important that it “make sense” than sound good. </p>

      <blockquote><em><a href="#480982">In reply to jimchamplin:</a></em></blockquote><p>It's not that unreasonable that they want a single brand for home automation devices, but it does seem like they should have thought of that before they established two different brands that each had their own identity.</p>

        <blockquote><em><a href="#481037">In reply to jgraebner:</a></em></blockquote><p>Mmmm… yeah, I see your angle, but I guess it’s the fact that they’re changing it NOW. Not earlier on. Classic Goog. </p>
