Everything Announced at Made By Google While You Were Sleeping

Aside from setting off my Google Home devices with every ‘Hey Google’ command at 1 am this morning, the search giant used its Made By Google event to drop its new Pixel range.

There’s the new Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, the Pixel Watch (finally) and a new tablet. According to Google’s SVP of devices and services, Rick Osterloh, the Pixel range is designed to provide “immersive, ambient experiences”. So let’s take a look.

Headlining the event this morning were the new Pixel phones. They pack the new Google Tensor G2 chip, which promises a faster, smarter and just all-around exceptional Google software-hardware combo. The camera system remains mostly unchanged, but the G2 allows the software to do more, resulting in better photos and videos.

Google has officially announced the Pixel Watch. It’s been a long time coming and it seems the first smartwatch from the search giant since it acquired Fitbit might just live up to expectations. It looks sleek, seems to be customisable beyond what you’d actually need and offers to-the-second heart rate monitoring. The only downside is its 24-hour battery life.

This thing looks exactly like the Nest Hub, just portable and capable of a few more things. It’s really a magnetic speaker dock that it’s sitting on, by the way. The pitch behind this one was that they know your tablet rarely leaves the couch, so it wanted to make a tablet that works with your home. The company said it also didn’t want to miss out on bringing the capabilities of the Pixel phones to a larger screen. It screams of gimmick, yet we still want one.
